I have Bears season tickets so Jeannie Walters, Mr. W., Mr. D, and I made our way to Soldier Field last night for the game. Fully expecting a disappointing night, I felt like I was going to throw up with anticipation. Sure we’d won against the Lions in the season home opener (a gift, really) and we stunned the Cowboys last week, but I had more at stake here. I have LOTS of friends who are Packers fans and a loss would mean having to listen to them go on and on and on about their smelly cheese head team.

But when Devin Hester ran the ball back for the TD to take the lead, I exclaimed, “If we win this game, I am writing tomorrow about how much the Packers suck.” Fully realizing this has nothing to do with communications, I don’t care! We are 3-0!!

So here you are…the top 10 reasons the Packers suck.

Number 10: They wear cheese for hats.

Number 9: They set a team record last night…for 18 penalties.

Number 8: They had not one, but two, fourth quarter turnovers.

Number 7: They know better than to kick to Devin Hester, yet they did just that and failed to tackle him while he ran 62 yards for a touchdown.

Number 6: They had 152 (hahahaha!) yards in penalties.

Number 5: They had four false starts (or traveling, as I like to call it)!

Number 4: They no longer have youth and inexperience to blame.

Number 3: Aaron Rodgers does get rattled…after 60 minutes of being rushed, beat down, and chased.

Number 2: Aaaron Rodgers eats babies (and, as it turns out, he’s not Brett Favre).

Number 1: And last, but certainly not least, with four seconds left in the game, they tried anything to run a punt back, only to get called for penalty after penalty for illegal lateral moves. If you haven’t seen the last four seconds of the game, it’s worth finding it…really.

I can finally say…BEAR DOWN to all of my Packers fan friends!
