We already know rules don’t apply to the NFL, especially their own. Despite a lockout that isn’t likely to be resolved until late June at the earliest, the Green Bay Packers will hold their Super Bowl ring ceremony on June...More
This probably wasn’t the best offseason for a lockout, at least as far as the Green Bay Packers organization is concerned. Every team coming off a Super Bowl win experiences some sort of hangover. The players are partying, making personal appearances,...More
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is a strange dude. He picks up random chicks in places he shouldn't be and forces them to do things they don't want to (allegedly). He also thinks about the Green Bay Packers while he's...More
The NFL lockout has a lot of far-reaching consequences, but for the Green Bay Packers, it’s also put a hold on the traditional post-Super Bowl championship activities. The Packers haven’t even ordered their Super Bowl rings because the team wants...More
We've all made stupid bets.
Usually it's because of that sonofabitch called pride, which needles you in your side just as soon as you're forced to defend your home turf. A wise man once told me never to bet with your...More
Someone brought Giovanni Bartocci’s story to my attention last week. It disappeared into the ether until I was digging through my email last night and I laughed to myself, “Oh yeah, that crazy bastard.” Bartocci is a Green Bay Packers...More

While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were... well,...More
As a salute to your world champion Green Bay Packers, the Empire State Building was lit up in the team’s green and gold Monday night. Over the weekend, the building was lit in the colors of both the Packers and...More
It’s taken a little longer than normal to return to reality. The feeling that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl XLV champions is still a bit surreal. Sunday night we celebrated. In my case, a little too long. Yesterday’s...More
In a fitting end to a season marked by adversity, the Green Bay Packers overcame another spate of injuries to key players and outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV and bring the Lombardi trophy home. It...More
It’s come to my attention the Black Eyed Peas will be performing during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show, which makes me throw up in my mouth a little. If there were ever a bigger group of sellouts, I’m not...More
Confidence instills confidence. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is supremely confident about this game and I suspect his team is too. After Friday’s practice, McCarthy had this to say. “We’ve had an opportunity to go over every situation twice...More
Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer...More
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday. Pouncey injured his ankle in the AFC Championship game and although he’s been in a walking boot most of the week, he insisted...More
