Green Bay’s Playoffs End

Yesterday, we were so excited about the pending Packers vs. 49ers game.  We were bound and determined that the Packers were on the same route that they took to win the Super Bowl 2 years ago.  It just wasn’t so though.

Ultimately, no matter what we (the Packers) did, it wasn’t enough.  We lost.  Despite what sports reports say though, we weren’t blown away.  We lost 45-31.  That’s 14 points….2 touchdowns.  That’s not a beating by any means.  Now if you’re talking 4 touchdowns, that’s another story.

One thing I am is a Packers fan….win or lose!!  I was shocked to see some “fans” bashing them right away.  That’s not what fans do.  There’s good days and bad days for any team.  Heck, I remember bad years for Green Bay.  These “fans” later said that they were blowing off steam, they were drinking, or other excuses.  I get some of that, but come on, it’s a time to unite.  It’s definitely not a time to tear them down, insult players, or a number of other things.

So, that leads me to a pet peeve of mine!!  HAHA  If you’re a real Packers fan, you know that their colors are green and gold, NOT green and yellow.  I can’t stand all this stuff people make that say green and yellow on it.  Or they say they bleed green and yellow.  Sorry, but I don’t know who you’re rooting for then.  I know that I bleed green and gold, just like the team!!

Our playoffs, run for the Super Bowl, and season have come to an end for this year.  Now it’s time to rebuild and look to next season (and for us to put our jerseys away for now).  We have some players that are getting old and some that aren’t as productive as they should be.  In the next year or so, we also have some contracts that need to be renewed in order to stay the caliber team that we are….and need to be able to advance further.  I think the off-season will be interesting and lots of stuff going on for this team.  Onward and upward!!

Go Pack Go!!  I will forever bleed green and gold!!
