The Pack Is Back
The Hackwhackers' sentimental favorite Green Bay Packers are heading for the Super Bowl, after their 21-14 performance against the Chicago Bears yesterday. The Pack will face the Pittsburgh Steelers (whom we were rooting for against the NY Jets) in a showdown of two old-time franchises that were among the original National Football League teams (Packers, 1921, Steelers, 1933). The Pack is still the only community-owned team, and the Steelers are still owned by the Rooney family (son Dan Rooney is Obama's ambassador to Ireland). These are two great teams with long histories in football. It should be a great game.
