This is how I will be until the Packers win the Super Bowl or poop all over the Lambeau Turf.


Ok Losers, Packer Fans and friends. Help us out here. Members of the Losers Bracket staff are in full Packer Playoff Hand Wringing Mode (PPHWM). We are having visions of the Packers’ magical ride end to the G-Men. Maybe it is our not so distant memories of 2007 and the bed wetting which occurred. Or maybe it is because of the real possibility that Brandon Jacobs, Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Pieere St Paul and Justin Tuck are going to rip our  high-octane, fancy pants dome team (yes, the Packers are more suited for a dome…..gasp) a new one. We shall see, but as is customary with yours truly, I am panicking.

I cant focus on anything but my absolute fear of watching Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks run wild on our terribad secondary.

I am fairly convinced that the Packers will get blown out, just like I was convinced that Atlanta would blow them out last year.

I just cant help myself, perhaps it is a defense mechanism I have subconsciously created for myself, which in some sick way would lessen the blow if they do actually lose, whereby my brain can say “told you so”.

God, Mayo and I once said it is so much more relaxing when you team is Cleveland Brown bad and insignificant.  I know, there is not glory, but I bet Brown’s fans aren’t sick thinking about Victor Cruz and Brandon Jacobs running over Hawk’s dumb A$$.

Thats right, I am in full playoff mode and listening to Rage Against the Machine watching NFL highlights.

See you guys in February, after the Super Bowl, when I can return to normal.


For the record, I am not very confident going into this weekend’s game against the G-men either.

It has barely cracked below 30 degrees here this winter, we’ve got ZERO SNOWFALL on the ground and it’s likely to hit 50 degrees today and tomorrow in the land of Cheese.  That means our high-powered “dome team” has had virtually no time to get used to any sort of winter, and I predict this weekend, when our temps finally hit mid-20′s, NOT TO MENTION, GOD BLESS US IF THERE’S A BLUSTERY WIND CHILL, our skinny wimpy sports car guys are gonna tense up and LOSE.  It’s not Eli and Cruz I’m worried about, it’s that Big Bad B-Jake’s gonna run over our line, then our linebackers, then our d-backs, and then our cheerleaders, and then probably keep right on going and Lambeau Leap right into the first row and run up the bleachers stomping over every drunk in camouflage or blaze orange outerwear on his way to the bratwurst stand.

This will be a heart-crushing end to our very dominant season.


I just want it to be over. Honestly, I do not enjoy the ride. I enjoy the memories, but the ride is a torturous as waiting for the hottie you called in college to return you call and answer “yes” or “no” to your proposition for a make out session disguised as attending a party.

Nope, I want it over. It was easier last year, we expected NOTHING. NOW NOW>…..golly, 15-1 and you poop your pants against a 9-7 team…unfathomable………..
