Someone recently passed along these photos of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers doing his thing at Disneyland after leading the team to a win in Super Bowl XLV. Now seems like a appropriate time to share, since there’s nothing else going on in the NFL.
The NFL lockout has a lot of far-reaching consequences, but for the Green Bay Packers, it’s also put a hold on the traditional post-Super Bowl championship activities. The Packers haven’t even ordered their Super Bowl rings because the team wants to consult the players before doing so. During the lockout, team personnel and coaches are […]
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is going to be on Dancing With the Stars.
Because he’s an idiot.
There was word Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson suffered an injury during Super Bowl XLV, but the extent of it wasn’t reported.
Nelson suffered a bursa sac injury in his left knee — bursa sacs are filled with fluid and act as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues in the body (yeah, I looked that up).
We’ve all made stupid bets.
Usually it’s because of that sonofabitch called pride, which needles you in your side just as soon as you’re forced to defend your home turf. A wise man once told me never to bet with your heart unless it’s a lead-pipe cinch.
I don’t think anyone can argue that Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is one of the best defensive players in the league.
He’s one of the NFL’s top pass rushers, he can completely disrupt opposing offenses and he has to be game planned for. That being said, he’s not the greatest run-stuffing linebacker, even on his own team.
Someone brought Giovanni Bartocci’s story to my attention last week. It disappeared into the ether until I was digging through my email last night and I laughed to myself, “Oh yeah, that crazy bastard.” Bartocci is a Green Bay Packers fan. He’s also one of those guys. There’s something not quite right about him, but […]
Before Super Bowl XLV, we wrote about Green Bay Packers fan Daniel Smith, who ponied up Stubhub prices for Super Bowl tickets for himself, his children and their significant others only to find out the NFL wouldn’t let his daughter bring her infant son into the game without a ticket.
You know all that Super Bowl championship gear they make before the game for the losing team?
It all gets shipped to some third-world country.
While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were… well, not wearing anything but their uniforms.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Jordy Nelson will grace the cover of the new issue of Sports Illustrated. That’s what happens when you win the Super Bowl.
