|Do Not Disturb|
Winning the Super Bowl is hard work. I'm exhausted.
The Green Bay Packers don't need my help now cuz I already helped dem win their 4th Vince Lombardi Trophy.
It was a tough game, but I helped the boys all I could.
The Coach is proud of me for my new play - The Tripping Play. Dis guy would have scored had I not tripped him.
Den I helped Aaron by clearing the way for him to score dat last touchdown.
He was so happy with me - look how he showed me off to the crowd.
|Maybe in the Atrium - or Hall Of Fame?|
Now there is even talk on our TV dat the Team will go to the White House and meet the President. Oh my Cat! I might even get to go and meet The First Dog - Bo.
Hope he won't chase me.
Oh, M wanted to tell you just a few background things about our team dat makes dem different from all other teams. (M - keep it short please so my readers don't get bored.)
M here: Thank you Mario - I promise I';ll try to keep it short.
1. Green Bay is the smallest city to have a major league football team in the US.
2. Green Bay's population, including touching suburbs and City of DePere, which touches Green Bay was 174,624 July 2009 Census. Green Bay was 101.512 of that 174,624 in 2009. We are not very large.
3. The team is the only community-owned franchise in American professional sports with more than 100,000 shareholders.
4. The shares do not increase in value nor pay dividends, and can only be sold back to the team.
A friend, who formerly lived in Wisconsin and now lives in Florida, sent me the link to this U-Tube video. It's nicely done by Rachel Maddow of MSNBC and gives a brief run down on our city and the Packers.
You don't need to be a football fan to enjoy it.
I hope the video shows up - I don't insert these very often.
Just like you are proud of your football or soccer team, we are very proud of our local Green Bay Packers.
Thank you Mario for letting me share a little blog space.
Mario will be back with the next post when he finally wakes up!
