It was an exciting night, Green Bay Packers fans.

The longest-running rivalry in the NFL added another chapter to its storied history, with the Bears coming to Green Bay.

Our Lambeau legend Brett Favre had his number retired, with an induction to the Pro Football Hall Of Fame likely to come in the offseason.

We even got to see a much-anticipated and hoped for appearance by the first franchise quarterback ever for the Green & Gold, with Bart Starr reaching the culmination of a treacherous and still-ongoing health battle to be able to be present for Favre’s ceremony.

The only thing missing was a victory, which Aaron Rodgers and company were unable to pull away with in an eventual 17-13 loss to Chicago.

How did this happen?
