Yes, it’s the first week of July and we’ve made it this far, especially through that dog month of the NFL offseason – June – but because you can’t wait for the Green Bay Packers to open their training camp, I went ahead and posted this video just for you.
The highlights on this video roll one after another, illustrating just why this team is our favorite … and emphasizing why we can’t wait for them.
I remember the days way back when the news about the Green Bay Packers was nonexistent from January through August. Those were the days before the Internet, before Facebook, before Twitter, before lombardiave.com.
Talk about a wasteland … oh, there were nuggets of information that may show up in the briefs on the sports pages, but it was far and few between. Most of it was news about who the Packers may have signed or cut or some other innocuous NFL news.
But it wasn’t until training camp got under way that news about the green and gold might start appearing on page 2 of the sports page. That’s because baseball had all the headlines.
But like I said, that was before the Internet, before YouTube, before instant communication.
And so because I know you just can’t wait for the Green Bay Packers, we’ll bring the highlights of the 2012 season to you via YouTube … enjoy.
