One of the commenters brought this up in our Dress for Success post and I felt that I needed to touch on it. The commenter, who I believe is from Right Field Bleachers (and if it's not, they made the same point), had this to say:
And No PACKERS shit….period !!!
This isn’t football season….I’ve wanted to puke for years on how many #4 jerseys or Packer Starter jackets would grace the crowd on opening day.
Get a clue…people.
You see here's the thing. Last season I was at what I consider to be the greatest game I have ever seen in my life. You know the one, there's a DVD of it. The picture of Ryan Braun from the game is on EVERYTHING. I had an amazing time and I didn't even drink (stupid designated driving). I was with three of my close friends and the game was almost perfect. There were, in my mind, only two problems with this day and this memory:
- Cubs Fans
- Packers fans
Now, in a way the Cubs fans weren't that bad. Once Braun hit that home run, they hit the road and stopped being annoying. Letting the fans have their moment. The thing that pissed me off was that they were even there in the first place. If my team had clinched and the team their playing was on the verge of clinching, I'd put my tickets up for sale. That's just good business. Anyways, the Cubs fans weren't the biggest problem. The biggest problem was the Packers fans.
There was a sea of Packers jerseys, but that wasn't the problem. The problem was this:
Mike Cameron on first base.
The season hanging in the balance.
Ryan Braun steps up to the plate.
SWING AND A DRIVE!
LEFT CENTER AND DEEP
GET UP GET OUTTA HERE
And the crowd is going nuts. People are jumping up and down, screaming, Cubs fans are filing out the door at a frantic pace. Miller Park is a mad house at this point and everyone is out of there mind, this guy sitting behind me taps me on the shoulder in the pandemonium and I high five him. But he wasn't looking for a high five. He wanted to ask me a question. He wanted to ask me if I knew the score of the Packers/Buccaneers game.
Seriously? You're at one of the biggest games in Brewers history and just witnessed probably the biggest moment in Brewers history and you're asking me about the Packers? Really?
Suffice to say, I'm not the biggest fan of Packers fans.

In case you haven't noticed it is officially prediction season. That special time of year where everyone decides that they "know" who is going to win each division, every playoff series and award despite really not knowing anything at all. Some people do this with computer projections and other people just kind of throw stuff out there. I'll leave you to figure out what side I am on.
