The Green Bay Packers are the real “America’s Team.”
If a couple of years ago ESPN can decide to have a re-vote to decide where should Titletown be re-named, then we, as Packers Nation, can just take back what we were considered decades ago before someone decided Dallas should wear that moniker because we had the Titletown label.
But America’s Team?
You’re kidding, right? There is only one team that exemplifies rural America all across the country – the small towns, the farms, the trees and lakes of America – these are all the same qualities the real America’s Team possesses, the Green Bay Packers.
Look at stadiums all across the country when the Green Bay Packers travel – they have legions of fans everywhere and in every state.
The Cowboys image is that of a billionaire owner with a billion dollar stadium. The Packers are community owned and their stadium would fit 80 percent of the population of Green Bay.
Across the parking lot of the stadium is a neighborhood of 1,200 square-foot ranch homes. The kids wait outside the stadium to give up their bicycles for the players to ride to practice – from the star QB and LB down to the 53rd man on the roster and the practice squad.
If the team were to be sold, all the proceeds would go to the local VFW. Several hundred thousand fans can say they own ‘stock’ in the franchise.
How can the Green Bay Packers not be America’s Team?
