This Al Tielemans photograph graces this week's issue of Sports Illustrated in this part of the country.

Packers fans have to be loving this


Sports Illustrated jinx?

What jinx?

We all know it only affects the Bears, not the Packers … but we don’t have to worry about that anymore this season, do we, Mr. Cutler?

Anyway, if you haven’t seen the latest SI cover … here it is … What a beautiful portrait of Mr. Rodgers by Al Tielemans.

It’s playoffs time and even though we won’t be watching the Packers this weekend (that’s a good thing, you know), we can enjoy the moment and the pictures …

And if you’re really interested in what Peter King thinks will be the outcome of this year’s tournament, pick up a copy of the magazine.

Hint: You won’t be happy with what he thinks, but you have to remember that at the beginning of the season he picked the Atlanta Falcons to beat the San Diego Chargers in the big dance.

We all know how his pick turned out … We here at Lombardiave think he will be wrong again.
