Being a stranger in Northeast Wisconsin, I might not be the one to write about how Green Bay looks and sounds ready to support their Packers on the eve of what is an unprecedented season, as they reach for another title.
Or maybe as an unbiased party, I’m just the one to write it.
And I can confidently say as I moved around the community today, that it feels very much like a passionate following getting ready to charge with their beloved football team into battle. Even if the first game is in Minnesota and a pandemic is keeping them out of the stadium for the time being.
Jerseys are present. Facemasks are the colors of green and gold. And everyone is ready to put their alternative plan into place, whether it’s a house party or visit to one of the venues just off of Lombardi.
You guys are ready to go.
And you should be. As as I’m sure all of you are well aware, this team is good enough to go to the SuperBowl. I predicted that (story HERE) and you guys are good enough to win it.
But do remember.
The rest of the league is rooting against you. They want an angry Aaron Rodgers on the sidelines. They want a nasty divorce between the team on the future Hall Of Fame quarterback. Will they get their wish? That I don’t know.
But what I do know is that you guys are ready to support your Green Bay Packers. And as a stranger here, that was never really a question at all.
