An Ode to the Green Bay Packers


There once was a QB named Aaron
Proudly, Green & Yellow he was wearin’
When it came to the inbreds
Who he surgically tore to shreds
And made Yinzers worldwide take to swearin’.

He threw it to the left, screened them to the right
The scoreboard was like a pinball all through the night
Oh the Steelers they cried
And they cried, cried, cried
But in Baltimore their suffering was a very pleasant sight

Their Pig Ben who wore that No. 7 shirt
Targeting teenagers with his Western PA hillbilly flirt
He was beaten and battered
Bloodied and tattered
A lesson for navigating little girls skirts

Those Terrible Towels they were nowhere around
The Yinzers were motionless, heads hung to the ground
As the 4th quarter arrived
The Black & Yellow hardly alive
Their silence like music, oh what a beautiful sound

The scoreboard ticked down until the very end
Aaron Rodgers, our hero, and brand new best friend
A picture perfect story
The Pack returned to glory
DisneyWorld rejoiced, there would be no Pig Ben

And that folks is the end of football this year
Next season we’ll do it all again with laughter and cheer
To Indy we’ll go
And play in the big show
And make those Yinzers again cry in their Iron City Beer

I agree with FRAN. Instant Classic and the picture of "PIG BEN" is a great piece of PHOTO SHOP ART WORK.
I still have a good feeling about the Green Bay Packers:
Packers win 26-21!!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and he's the QB of the World Champion Green Bay Packers! If the Packers could catch, this game would not have been close as the Steeler secondary couldn't cover anybody! By the way, I still believe that the Ravens were better than both of these teams, but suffered from inept coaching that did not know how to capitalize on the talent at their disposal! It may improve on defense next year, assuming there is a next year, because Mattison is back in college where he belongs. But, we still have the insufferable Cam Cameron who clearly did not know what he was doing this year and "his" offense showed it.......

...While I was entering my thoughts about 1 hour ago, a brilliant blog appeared from JERRY B. Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus and he showed the world how its done.
..Maybe I'm a KOOL-AID drinker for the Baltimore Ravens, but I still believe, that JOE Flacco can be Santa Claus to Baltimore, if they unleash his vast potential and let him THROW THE BALL DEEP like Aaron Rogers did on Sunday.
