This is true. When the Green Bay Packers signed the biggest free agent in history — Reggie White — in 1993, it changed the NFL landscape. It made the Packers fully legitimate and it made Reggie White a Super Bowl champion.
You know, I don’t live in Wisconsin anymore, so it’s kind of hard to follow Wisconsin politics. However, I do know this. Governor Scott Walker and Speaker Paul Ryan sit at the right hand of Donald Trump. They also both really like the Packers.
They seem to utilize the Packers whenever they can.
So when Walker announced some Foxconn deal today, he compared it to the Packers signing Reggie White. Transformational, he said.
I’m not going to pretend I know anything about this deal, although, at a glance, it certainly seems debatable how transformational it will be.
Lot of ins and outs, as The Dude would say.
But what I’d like to suggest is this.
It’s something I think we can all agree on, regardless of political leaning or affiliation. Politicians can piss off in using sports analogies to promote their politics. Especially those that are related to the Green Bay Packers.
Am I right?
