Thank You Green Bay Packers
With the Packers in the post season, it's great to see Wisconsin united under a positive story. It's one that brings families, friends, neighbors and towns together. The Packers success has brought sparkle to an otherwise blah month, where many are battling post holiday blues. Usually January is gray, cold, and month where we all pledge to start anew. Many vow to change their lives, their jobs, and of course their waistlines.
But this year thanks to the Packers we have a pleasant distraction to our New Years resolutions. We can embrace a common cause, something we can all cheer about. Brett Favre and company have taken given winter a sizzle we have not seen in eleven years.
Packers fans are happy these days. We're excited, smiling, and filled with glee. To be this close to the Super Bowl is truly exhilarating. Particularly in a season where most predictions were for mediocrity. Thank you Packers for proving critics wrong and inspiring us. You have made our month. What you accomplished on Saturday was nothing short of amazing.
You could feel the collective moans early when Ryan Grant's two fumbles left us with a 14 point deficit. But Grant redeemed himself to finish with 201 yards rushing and three touchdowns. He helped seal a huge Green Bay victory over the Seattle Seahawks. It was a comeback of amazing proportions.
Thank you Green Bay Packers for an important life lesson. You taught us that when we stumble, we can get back up. You proved that loosing a few plays, does not mean you cannot win the game. You showed us the importance of determination, courage, and will.
Thank you Green Bay Packers. Because of you, this January is one of the warmest on record. Not in the skies. But in our hearts.
