A few years back on the old Packer forum, there used to be a member named Montana Bob. He held a Limerick contest one year and I won. I have passed on the tradition ever since.
I have already forgotten the winning limerick that started this whole thing out, but what I do remember is the fantastic prize package I got from Bob. It was all local products from Montana. Barbeque sauce, a grizzlies cap, and some coffee were among the many local items in my carefully packed UPS box.
The winner was obligated to continue the tradition the following season. The next year I kept my word and held a limerick contest. The winner turned out to be some dumbass from California. I mailed the dude a Brewers cap, some local coffee, a Packer mug, and topped it off with a framed piece of Packers' stock. Much do my disappointment the guy never confirmed he received the package nor sent a follow up email. He simple disappeared.
It is with this in mind I launch the Packer Lounge Limerick contest 2009.
The rules are simple: The best Limerick wins a prize package from the heart of Wisconsin.
If you are unfamiliar with Limericks, please refer to the finer points here. I am pretty strict on the grading, so take some time to put in a well thought out effort. The contest ends the second the ball is kicked off in the Packers first regular season game.

There's an Oiler from Atlanta Texas
Who's a whiz at the O's and the X's
He drafts only the cream
And the chosen they scream
It's a dream to have Teddy select us
