The agony of watching and waiting through preseason for the start of the regular season is an annual journey, one that is time consuming, but well worth the wait.

Sorting through the emotional drama of the wait, Packers fans have one more thing to digest prior to the start of this upcoming Super Bowl-defending season – the debut of America’s Game: 2010 Green Bay Packers, the most recent installment of the Emmy Award-winning NFL Films-produced series that features the Super Bowl winning team each year.

The hour-long program will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 7, just prior to the Packers league- and season-opening game against the New Orleans Saints, Thursday, Sept. 8.

Honored with the program, the story of the 2010 Green Bay Packers’ season will be told through the words of Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy and Charles Woodson. It will include the fine work of the talents of NFL Films cameramen and editors, but also through exclusive video and sound shot during team meetings, practices, games and inside the locker room. It’s an all-access look at the team that should be enlightening even for the most die-hard Packers fans.

If you’ve had the opportunity to watch any of the previous “America’s Game’ programs, you know this is something special. This newest production is sure to please … not only Packers fans … even Vikings, Lions and Bears fans may enjoy it … well, maybe not.

Anyway, it will surely be a program that will get the blood pumping in preparation of the season-opening game at Lambeau Sept. 8.
