The Packers are the heart and soul of Green Bay. Fans own “stock” in the team, and season tickets are a valuable commodity. That made tickets to the Christmas night game with archrival Chicago either the best gift a fan could find under the tree, or (if her sign is to be believed) a perfect way to get back at a cheating boyfriend.
Well played, Packer fan. For your use of tickets to get back at the ex and a clearly-written sign that let fans across the country know you were smart enough to move on, you win the Shutdown Corner sign of the year.
Why will not Fox, CBS, ESPN, 620 WTMJ show or broadcast the National Anthem before games on Sundays? The NFL network played and showed the complete National Anthem before tonight’s game like before every NASCAR race. Did they broadcast it because they are trying to increase viewers? Did they do it because no one else would notice?
It’s a very good question and one that deserves an answer. Especially for FOX when you consider that the first half of the NASCAR season is on that network.
Why not broadcast the complete National Anthem before every sports game? Is that one extra ad before kickoff or tipoff that important to the bottom line?
