There is no joy in Packerland today

by kelly

That was a tough loss last night.

We got to overtime.  The game was tied.

We won the coin flip and possession of the ball.

One of Favre’s guns should have sailed us right into the Superbowl.

But.  Instead, that one was intercepted.

It’s a sad, sad, thing.

Maybe things would have been different if the wind chill on the field hadn’t been -25.

But we’ll never know.

All Packer fans can do, as a sports psychologist interviewed on a local radio station this morning advised, is to focus on what’s meaningful and positive in our lives right now.

We’ll have to try to forget this game, as Mr. Favre, himself, has already said he’ll try to do.  Though, he added, “it’s going to be very hard.”

Now, Favre is left to ponder the decision that has kept Cheeseheads on edge for each of the past several cold off-seasons: Will he retire, or decide to return for his 18th NFL season?

“I’m not going to rush to make any quick decision, but I think probably it’ll be much quicker than it has been in the past – and people will probably appreciate that,” Favre said. “But I’m just going to try to enjoy this season we had as much as I can and try to block this game out. It’s going to be very hard. I’m not going to let this game sway my decision one way or another.”
