Today, the Packers beat the Bears in Chicago, clinching another divisional title and setting themselves up nicely to have the playoff road run through Lambeau Field.
The game ended at approximately 4:01 pm Eastern Standard Time. Twenty minutes later, I had this in my Inbox:
Does anybody actually buy Divisional Champions gear? For a franchise like the Packers, that seems a pretty low bar. I guess the team can get in on holiday gifts by seizing the moment and emphasizing the only thing they've won so far, but I'm not a big fan. If the Packers advance beyond the divisional round, there will be better merchandise to buy. If they don't, I don't want a reminder.
Congrats to the team on today's accomplishment. But let's go get the next one; I want World Champions merchandise.
