In lieu of "real" Packers news, here are some rad tidbits for you crazy kids.
Pirates… Apparently, pirates are no longer a phenomenon in Gore Verbinski flicks. Somali pirates were owned by the US Navy seals, with perfect sniper shops on the high seas to rescue a captured American captain (no word yet if Greg Jennings was around). Even the dolphins got involved (not the overhyped Miami team)… well check out the awesomeness for yourself.
Schedule… The NFL schedule was released yesterday, and the Pack should have no problem starting 5-1. The toughest games in the first six are the opening match at home vs. Chicago and a week four showdown @ the Metrodome. My two beefs with our schedule is the week 5 bye (very early), and playing four out of the last six games on the road when Lambeau is all frozen and tundra-y.
Lame Packers news… Can all of you Lounge Lizards slow down on blowing loads about visits with Greg Paulus and mediocre nose tackles whose last name sounds like a Chinese food condiment? Just wait until next week, where 90% of you should be horribly disappointed with our draft.
Minor League awesomeness… I attended a local minor league game last night, the Greenville Drive, who happen to be a single A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. The Drive has a brand spanking new stadium that is an exact replica of Fenway Park (Big Green Monster, Pesky’s Pole included), which you should definitely take a peek at.
Observe and Report... Not since Travis Bickle destroyed a harem of pimps in NYC have I loved a sociopath as much. I'm convinced that Seth Rogen is Will Ferrell's disturbed younger brother. This is a must see.
Dentist… I had to visit the Dentist, which normally isn’t awesome at all, but a buddy of mine sent me this hilarity which sorta kinda is related. This must be Kyle Orton's kid.
Nick Barnett… has stepped up his twittering lately. Instead of Dancing with the Stars and mid-afternoon kids show talk, he mentioned how badass the defense should be next year. When I asked if Ryan Pickett was ready to man the NT position, he simply wrote back “The big grease is ready.” These are the kinds of things we need to hear from you, big guy. Gotta love Twitter.
Booze of the week... Spaten Optimator. German beer with 7.2% alcohol. 'Nuff said.
Broad of the week... Anna Farris, from the mentioned Observe and Report.
That’s it for now… my lame attempt at a mock draft will be coming soon. Remember to tell Alex how awesome I am!
