Last night we went to one of the handful of places in town with the NFL Network, and it was packed with people there to watch the game. About 2/3 rooting for the Pack (although most were I presume Pats fans). The place I was at had a band scheduled to start at ~ 9:30, but they delayed their start about 45 minutes and played sparingly until the game was over, around 11:30 or so. I was surprised at the level of interest in this game.
Why? Packer love is bad, it's nation-wide.
Didn't you catch the moment where the Dallas offense got charged with a noise-induced false-start penalty in their own stadium
I'm sure that at that moment Jerry Jones's anal sphincter had never been more tightly clenched, nor his face frozen in a grimmer rictus.
I must have missed that play.
I'm surprised because usually when I go watch the Packers in the local saloon, I'm pretty much the only one watching that game. One thing I can say, though, is that unlike the Cowboys, the Bears, or (especially around here) the Colts, there's very little hate for the Packers. They're not the favorite of most, but just about everyone is cool with them.
