NBC's Chuck Todd Shares Why He's a Packers Fan

For most Packers fans, the reason that they are fans is personal and important to who they are. As a transplant, it's something that I struggle to explain to those who don't have that same relationship with their team. 

On the NFL Network before the Packers kick off against the Bears on Thursday night, NBC News political director throws aside politics to unite with all Packers fans as he shares why he's a Packer fan

Todd's last line will probably hit close to home for a number of fans:

“My father isn’t with me anymore, so for me, rooting for the Green Bay Packers, sitting and watching the Green Bay Packers is yet another way for me to be hanging out with my late father. And that’s the best reason in the world to be a Packers fan.”

I have been a Packers fan since 1956.
My father was a Lions fan.
My best friends parents took me to my 1st Packers game that year against the Bears.
We lost but I'm sure glad I didn't follow in my father's footsteps.

One of my first TV memories was watching the Packers-Eagles championship game in 1960 with my dad.

My last memory of my dad was watching a Packers-Bears game at the nursing home in 2012 a couple days before he passed.

I can relate.

I can remember watching Brett's first game with my dad. The pass to Kitrick Taylor. Us jumping around the house like idiots.

The Super Bowl win in 96. All those playoff games against the Cowboys.

So many good memories.
