Obviously, those are incredibly emotional, and personal, words for every Packer fan.
The experience of being here at Soldier Field and watching the Packers win the NFC Championship is one I will cherish for the rest of my life. The time I got to spend as a credentialed member of the media led to a chance meeting with Bob Harlan. I simply could not let the opportunity pass without introducing myself, telling him quickly about Cheesehead TV, and then thanking him for saving the Packers - because that's what the man did.
Harlan looked me in the eye and said "Thank you for that. That means more than you know."
Just after this exchange, Harlan approached Aaron Rodgers and congratulated him. It was a perfect picture of the man who resurrected the Packers franchise and the quarterback who carries the mantle of the winning tradition that Harlan brought back to Green Bay.
It was, in a word, brilliant.
Go Pack Go.
