In Case You Were Wondering

Yesterday I commented that the dark years between Super Bowl 2 and the early 90s were not all that great for the Titletown Green Bay Packers. Even with 12 Championships over their years of existence (all-time stats: 654 winning, 518 losing, 36 tie. .558 record), there were some very lean years when they were seen as a joke, a shell of their former selves. Had they not been owned by the community, they very well could have been sold and moved in those years.

Here are the stats:
  • 1968 - 1991: 5 winning seasons, 16 losing, 3 tie. .410 record

But history did not allow such a great franchise with such a rich legacy to die.
  • 1992 - 2010: 15 winning seasons, 2 losing, 2 tie. .618 record
But even in those lean years, Packer fans, with their incurable green and gold bloodlines, were supportive and present. Every year was sold out. Season tickets have a years-long waiting list.

Which is simply a long way to say:

Go, Pack, Go!
