Dear Packer Joe,

I know it has been quite a while since we last spoke.  After all, we can barely stand each other, but I thought I should pass along some good news that is now officially official.

After almost a decade of rumors surrounding my parents’ desire to move our family, it turns out that the youngest kid on the block will be hanging around for quite some time.  Dad decided to build a new house on top of our current one, and while we’ll have to live out of a university dorm room for a while, we are staying in the neighborhood.

Now, I am sure you have mixed feeling about this, but I’m writing this letter to you because our love/hate relationship gives us a special bond.  Sure, we only play together twice a year (three if we’re both having a particularly good year), and it always ends with one of us crying as we take the football and stomp home, but those are still the best of times.  Our snowball fights, our mud battles, and our down-to-the-whistle wars are the stuff legends are made of and I am glad they will continue.

So, get your popcorn cheese curds ready you stinky, old bum.  It’s going to be a fun thirty years!

I’m looking forward to it… especially those two days out of every year that you and I cross paths.

Sincerely,

The Vikings

  1. I’m generely upset.. You managed to find the prettiest picture of a packer on the entire internet. If we are going to do a slighly mocking against the Packers we might as well find the ugliest guy out there. You just went into the “packer beaty contest” and found the winner and then put him up there..
    Well anyways, going to be fun twice this year

  2. Sorry Cal, I made it though about a minute and then had a similar reaction to Freds. I’m sure there’s a point to be made, I just missed it. I must say, ot is amazing what they can make into cartoons these days.

    • i guess i’ll hafta clarify. it’s a parody of an x-men cartoon some guys made. with that stupid helmet, the phacker phan in the pic looks like the juggernaut and seems just as dumb

  3. Thank you Cal. It now makes some sense. Freds, the X’s are the defense and the O’s are the offense. So the x men would be your linebackers, cornerbacks, etc.
