Maybe you’ve heard — Billy Joel is playing Lambeau Field this summer.
This will be the second time in three years the Green Bay Packers have held a summer concert. They hosted Kenny Chesney in 2015.
Did Kenny get some Packers’ stock? Not to our knowledge.
But Billy Joel did.
Billy Joel now owns a piece of the Packers. Any chance he shows up to a shareholder meeting? pic.twitter.com/uamHaviLte

You just know that goober Mark Murphy is super excited about this. He’s like, “How can I get out on stage and meet Billy Joel?”
By presenting him with some stock he probably doesn’t want, that’s how.
You’re so cool, Mark!
I’d like some stock.
Is that the “No Par” stock? Or the “Par” stock?
It is worthless paper. Less than worthless. A blank sheet you can at least write or draw on.
Not so much for Billy Joel who is getting worthless for free, but anyone owning one has a written symbol of how they were duped into giving money for nothing to an already rich organization. Packer stock is perhaps the greatest scam in history as per number of victims, length of perpetrating the scam, and money lost by the duped.
Kind of like Viking fans feel duped of all the money they’ve provided the vikings on the hopes and dreams of a Lombardi trophy.
It may just be a piece of paper to you. But to viking fans, it’s more than they’ve gotten from viking the past 50 years or so of broken dreams and the vikings stealing their money.
No, chili farts are not getting something for their money.
The vikings fans have about as much chance of seeing a Lombardi trophy as a 4 year old child has of not kicking his ass beaten bloody by Daddy.
Killer, why are you still here. Packers fans are well aware that the stock is worthless. It is essentially a voluntary contribution to the team. Just like if you wanted to donate money to your old high school to build a new crowsnest.
The Viking owe a debt of gratitude to the Philadelphia Eagles.
If it weren’t for the Eagles demanding a 1st round choice for Bradford. The vikings would have used their 3rd 1st round pick in 6 years for a untalented, overpaid 1st round QB.
The Eagles saved the Vikings from being inept once again, they saved them from themselves.
