I was born into a Bears family, so from day one I disliked the Packers. But I didn't hate the Packers until 1981-1982, most won't understand this but lets just say its personal
High Fives / Like - 2 BEAR DOWN!, 0 Dislikes
I've said it once, and I'll say it again. It's the ego. That and the fact that everybody is a bandwagon Packers fan while we get no respect. It makes our victories all the sweeter though.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap. Honey Badger Don't Care. Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit.
More oldies but goodies:
Because pi$$ and puke is a ridiculous color combination.
Because they are named after the act of stuffing dead animal meat into sausage skins.
Because "The Acme Meat Packing Plant" sounds like something out of a Roadrunner cartoon.
Because Majkowski was over the !@#$in' line.
Because Wanny went for two.
Because Brett Favrerreaauahh knows his pharmaceuticals.
Because Mark Chmurra is good with children.
Because Nietzchke couldn't hold Butkus' jock.
Because of the Lambeau leap.
Because of the so-called frozen tundra.
Because Desmond Howard won a Superbowl MVP.
Because they traded up in the second round to draft a punter (who wasn't very good). No, scratch that one. That's a good thing.
Because John Madden has become a caricature of himself due in large part to his man-love of Brett Favrerreaauahh. On second thought, calling Madden's feelings man-love gives man-love a bad name. Let's call it blatant homo-eroticism.
Because there would be no Green Bay Packers today had Papa Bear not intervened. (This may have been one of his few mistakes.)
Because they had the greatest quartertack in NFL history start for them for 17 consecutive years, and only managed one title during that span.
Because they threw said quarterback out like yesterday's trash.
Because we have more wins, more Hall of Famers, and a better head-to-head record.
Because the Lombardi Trophys is misnamed.
And, the best reason of all, because they're the Packers.
Packer fans are so stupid it takes them 2 hours to watch 60 minutes.
Packer fans are so stupid that they tried to put M&M's in alphabetical order.
Packer fans are so stupid they thought the Nazis were saying "Hi! Hitler".
Packer fans are so stupid they took a spoon to the superbowl.
I think I'll have a few more then one, some memories take a lot of alcohol to dull the pain

The handful of coaches who, in my mind, came the closest to achieving what Halas managed to do over a long stretch of years were Curly Lambeau, Paul Brown, Chuck Noll, Tom Landry, Don Shula, Joe Gibbs, Bill Walsh, Bill Belichick, and finally, Vince Lombardi. Of these, only Lambeau, Brown, Noll, and Shula came anywhere near to having coached as long as "Papa Bear." Gibbs, Walsh, Belichick, and Lombardi never coached more than 15 years (Belichick in his career combined between the Cleveland Browns and the Patriots). Halas had the luxury of both running his franchise as an owner/general manager like Paul Brown, Vince Lombardi, and Belichich have (the latter two, of course, were/are not owners). No coach has ever coached for more than 33 years (Curly Lambeau), nor did anyone win more NFL Championships than "Papa Bear". (Paul Brown won seven league championships, but he was in the AAFC for four of those titles.) Only Lombardi had a higher winning percentage than did Halas, and that's because he only coached for 11 years. Halas also was one of the inventors of the game of professional football, something that none of these other coaches can stake claim to, not even the Packers as much as they wish they could.
The fact is that all-around, George Halas has meant more to the NFL than any other individual person in the history of the league. Despite there being word that Halas swindled Chick Harley out of part ownership of the Bears, the point cannot not be denied that Halas is not only the Chicago Bears, he is the NFL. There would be no league without him.
All good points. Perhaps you should write the NFL and remind them. Because it is Lombardi who has his name on the only trophy that matters
