I'm a Packer fan living in the Twin Cities so I have a hatred for anything purple but the rivalry against the bxxxs is special for so many reasons. Of course there is the boundary issue--my wife grew up in Twin Lakes--her driveway coming off State Line Road so I've had had to suffer through family events being the token Packer fan.

There is the history--no other teams have met as often. Both have had great teams--the Packers having been World Champions a record 12 times, the bxxxs 9 times. Both have had great players--the bxxxs have 29 players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Packers have 26 (make it 27 in 2016). There have been the personal Rivaries: Lambeau-Halas and then Lombardi-Halas, and Gregg-Ditka.

Great heros--the Packers need a worthy villian--the bxxxs. Detroit hasn't filled that role for decades and the vxxxxxs, well let's face, ever since they've moved indoors, they're not worthy of being in the NFC North. There is a reason Lovie said his first goal was to beat the Packers--that's the measuring stick between these two teams.

Go Pack Go!
