Like the swallows returning to Capistrano or the first Robin in the spring (or late winter as we have come to know it here in Wisconsin), today marks the start of the Packers Nation’s spring.
Off season workouts begin today!
At this point of the year we have to grab on to anything and everything we can to get our Packers fix. Like the first strong cup of coffee on a rainy, spring morning, the start of workouts is that jolt that we need to start preparing for more important things headed our way in the Packers Nation.
So what can we expect from these off season workouts? … nothing! But the fact that the guys are getting together gives us something to talk about. Knowing that they are gathering to start the season, we begin to build our expectations even more so then they already are. The Lombardi Trophy is not going to be enough. It will have to be complete and total domination of every team in the NFL.
The start of workouts allows us to push the dreams of a cold winter night aside and look forward to the players doing whatever it is they do up in Green Bay. At this point does it even matter if they work out? No. As long as we know they are there and it is scheduled it just represents that the NFL season, ney, the Packer’ season has officially started and we can begin to put all speculation aside and begin to grasp at the straws of reality as to what is happening with our favorite players.
We will not gather any conclusive information as to where this teams stands or what they will do, but again this is just a sign, a sign of bigger and better things to start.
So scream from the highest point in the land (or if in Wisconsin scream from Timm’s Hill) and let the NFL know that the Pack is back to work and that the disappointments of last season have been washed away like the snow in rain, leaving only the green grass of Lambeau Field for us to gaze upon.
THE PACK IS BACK and spring can officially start!
