OBOD's Packers Super Bowl wrapup podcast

We’ve been working our way through a few technical issues, but our latest Packers podcast is here, and we’re no less excited to share it with you than we were a few days ago when we recorded it. For all those people who think we’re too hard on the Packers, who come down on us [...]

Setting some celebration ground rules

If you live in Wisconsin this week, these are wonderful times. The Packers are world champions for the 13th time. The three Lombardi Trophies proudly displayed in the final room of the Packers Hall of Fame are about to get a new friend. (Side note: We love the spotlights on the trophies, the music playing [...]

2010 Packers prove it just doesn't matter

None of it mattered to the 2010 Green Bay Packers.

Oh, it could have. At times, it probably should have. And for most teams, well, it unquestionably would have.

Injuries mounting at an (almost) comedic rate. Disappointing losses to teams they should have crushed. The weight of colossal expectations. Yeah – they were all there.

And that was [...]

Titletown again

We’ll have much more on this tomorrow — the Packers’ 13th world championship hasn’t sunk in yet for me, as it probably hasn’t for most of you — but in the meantime, here are some quick thoughts on the 31-25 Super Bowl win over the Steelers:

–AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! THE PACKERS ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!

–With that out of the [...]

OBOD's final Super Bowl Packers podcast

In just over 24 hours, the Packers and Steelers will kick off Super Bowl XLV. All the talking and analysis will finally be over, worth about as much as the air that was used to breathe it into existence.

But hey, what are you going to do until then?

While you’re burning away the last few hours [...]

Lady Lambeau's thoughts on the Super Bowl

The Big Game.

I think it’s safe to assume that every Pack fan has their vacation request approved for Monday, right? Win or lose, I do not want to be at work bright and early the day after the Superbowl. I have a few game day traditions and one of them might leave me feeling slightly [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A Super Bowl edition

So if you have listened to our podcasts, (which you should) you know we have a Steelers friend – Dave from South Bend. Well, Dave is actually born and bred in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Why is he a Steelers fan we still don’t know, even after prodding him during our podcast. Anyways, Dave is also a [...]

OBOD's (first) Super Bowl week Packers podcast

It’s Super Bowl week, Packers Nation, and we’ve got you covered. We’ve got our first of two podcasts this week ready to go — in this one, we look at a few matchups to watch and break down the Steelers with Dave from South Bend. Oh, and we’ve got a snippet of Favre news toward [...]

Rodgers needs to be like Roethlisberger Sunday

It seems like everyone is breaking down X’s and O’s (or the weather forecast for an INDOOR game) this week. And rightfully so since this is the biggest sporting event of the year.  Who will block Raji? Can Clifton and Bulaga slow down Harrison?  Who will win in the battle of the defensive minds?

All fair [...]
