Any sports fan will tell you that there is nothing that will ruin your day more than an extremely disappointing loss. As a Cowboy's fan, I have certainly grown accustomed to that over the years, but I don't think I've ever let my frustrations get to me as much as this Packers fan did after they lost in the playoffs this past Sunday.
Super Bowl XLV set a record. An estimated 111 million people watched the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. That tops the 106.5 million who watched the last years game between New Orleans and Indianapolis. More after the jump.
The Super Bowl hasn’t always been so super. In fact, throughout the ‘80s and into the first half of the ‘90s many of the games were blowouts the likes of which are rarely seen during the regular season.
We’ve had better luck with Super Bowls lately, and this year’s match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers is about as even as can be.
So maybe Sunday’s game will end up
A day after the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl, John Stone was fired for wearing a Green Bay Packers tie. Huh?
Jerry Roberts, John’s now ex-boss, said that he told him to take the tie off at least 5 times, and John still refused to do so.
