The stage was set, the house was full, the legends were in attendance.  It was all there to be a great day to be a Packer!  The crowd had green and gold blood pulsing through their veins.  The players hit the field with a self-assured stance that seemed to say, “Welcome to the house that Vince built.  Now get ready to get stuffed!”  The music blared, the flyover rocked, the kickoff exploded in a cacophony of thousands of Packer faithful bursting with the excitement of an impending win on a gorgeous Sunday during the final weekend of the summer.  GO PACK GO!!  There was no place better in the world to see a great football game, than Lambeau Field!!!

And then…

a great football game didn’t happen.

The Packers looked good at times, but Cincinnati looked better.   Poor Aaron Rodgers…sacked five times (probably before he knew what hit him)!!  Pass protection?  I guess they left it in the locker room!  Defense?  Not around…I mean, the Packers let the Bengals get a first down from a 3rd and 34!  And they just ran out of time in the end.  Not enough “hurry-up” offense when they needed it, I guess.    Oh well, it is classic Green Bay Packer football, and I am damn sure going to follow it next week and the week after that, and so on!  So it’s off to to play the Rams next week.  I guess we’ll chat about it here then!

TODAY’S SHOW WAS A HEALTHY ONE!

Or so Mark thought!  He wanted to commemorate the birthday of Chuck Jones, the classic Warner Brothers animator who helped to create the legends of all of those classic Looney Tunes characters.  He came up with a clip of a very obscure character, but there were more than a few of you who knew who it was we were looking for.  Congratulations to Veronica from Marquette who knew we were looking for the elusive “Little John”!   She was the proud recipient of two fourteen-inch three-topping pizzas from Main Street Pizza.

GOOD SHOW, BUT NOW IT’S TIME TO GO!

Catch you all here on the internetz again soon!
