OKAY WHOEVER YOU ARE, SIT DOWN AND HOLD ONTO YOUR SEATS, THIS IS GOING TO BE A RIDE. I hope you know some of the basics of football overall, because this is going to be strictly Packers related. (ALSO, IF YOU WANT TO REBLOG THIS AND ADD STUFF, I’M MOST LIKELY GOING TO MISS SOME STUFF SO PLEASE REBLOG AND ADD STUFF)
- The Green Bay Packers were formed in 1919 by Earl “Curly” Lambeau (which is why they play at Lambeau Field) and George Whitney Calhoun. They are the last small town team around, with Green Bay, Wisconsin population being 104k in 2012.
- They have won 13 league championships (the most of any team) which includes nine NFL championships PRIOR to the Super Bowl era, and then four Super Bowl victories ( I, II, XXXI, XLV).
- They are in the NFC North. The Bears/Packers rivalry is one of the oldest in the NFL. It dates back to 1921. & The Bears Still Suck!
