It’s pretty obvious that I grew up in a Packers household, but I also grew up in a Beatles home. We owned actual records and singles, and I grew up learning to switch the rotation speed on the record player and dropping a needle to hear greatness. In college my favorite class was a four credit course on the Beatles, the history of their songs, the technology they invented, their times and how they changed music. In my 6 years of post-high school education, I learned the most in that class. So on today, 30 years to the day after John Lennon was shot and killed, I offer this: a mix of two of my childhood loves. The Packers 2010 Season, as told by the Beatles. Week 1: Packers 27 – Eagles 20. Hello, Goodbye. We said hello to the season, and goodbye to Ryan Grant. Week 2: Packers 34 – Bills 7. I Feel Fine. Injuries aside, Packers domination. Week 3: Packers 17 – Bears 20. I Should Have Known Better. 18 penalties. Really. Week 4: Packers 28 – Lions 26. In Spite of all the Danger. Close wins still count. Week 5: Packers 13 – Redskins 16. Help. Help. Week 6: Packers 20 – Dolphins 23. I’m Down. “How can you laugh, when you know I’m down?” Week 7: Packers 28 – Vikings 24. Here Comes the Sun and Nowhere Man. Finally, the sun! And also, who’s that guy playing quarterback for the Vikings? Week 8: Packers 9 – Jets 0. With a Little Help From My Friends. Thank you defense. Week 9: Packers 45 – Cowboys 7. Sexy Sadie. Is there anything sexier than this score? Also, we made a fool of Wade Phillips. Week 10: Bye Week. Eight Days a Week. Man, bye weeks drag on forever. Week 11: Packers 31 – Vikings 3. I’m looking through you. Seriously, who is that guy playing QB for the Vikes? He’s not the same. Week 12: Packers 17 – Falcons 20. We Can Work It Out. We CAN work it out. Week 13: Packers 34 – Niners 16. Come Together and I Wanna Be Your Man. Trying to play a complete game while James Starks competes for our love. What will the rest of the season hold? Misery and The Long and Winding Road or will there be a Revolution in The End? Tomorrow Never Knows.
