Unless you live under a rock, you know it’s Super Bowl Sunday – one of the most highly-anticipated and most celebrated days of the entire year. It’s a day of pure enjoyment, even if you’re favorite team isn’t in the big game.
I’m like all fans of the Green Bay Packers today – happy that there is one more football game to enjoy and pleased that we had the opportunity to watch another season of Packers football.
As we officially head into the offseason once more after the clock ticks down to zero on today’s Super Bowl XLVIII, the confetti settles to the ground, and all the platitudes are given, we will once again turn our eyes to “next year.” Of course before that we will enjoy the Combine, Free Agency, the Draft, the OTAs, and training camp.
However, before we get to all that, we’ve got to enjoy this Super Bowl Sunday.
We start, of course, at the beginning with Super Bowl I, and will offer up more videos as the day progresses. Enjoy these … it seems as if they were yesterday.
