End of Another Year

Another dream has died in the desert.

Although the Packers staged a fairy-tale comeback to tie the game with a Hail Mary as time expired, they blew it in overtime and the Arizona Cardinals will move on to the NFC Championship Game.

I watched this one in a bar in Chicago, with a few dozen Packer fans all screaming "Go for Two!" But alas, this wasn't our year.

And so we draw a curtain on 2015. It was a good year for the Packers, and I like the new throwback uniforms which made their debut this season. We'll see what the team has in store for 2016; I'm hoping for new road unis and a stud free-agent wide receiver. I don't think we'll see either, but here's for hoping.
