Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl, give the state of Wisconsin something to cheer about

They started the season hoping for big things, only to suffer through an almost-unheard-of rash of injuries before hitting rock-bottom with a loss against a bad Detroit team.

You might think I'm eulogizing the current edition of the Milwaukee Bucks, but you can say the exact same as a preface for the improbable roller-coaster ride of the 2010 Green Bay Packers. And while the Bucks may still sneak into the playoffs--don't forget the Packers barely got in, too--there's no illusion of matching the Packers' fairy tale season, which ended tonight with a thrilling 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV

The Packers' fourth Super Bowl title catapults game MVP (and Milwaukee Bucks fan) Aaron Rodgers into Wisconsin sports immortality and is guaranteed to put the Bucks firmly on the back-burner for the foreseeable future--not that playing the bridesmaid to the Packers is anything new. And it's not like anonymity is necessarily a bad thing right now given how the Bucks' season is going. No matter what the Bucks do the rest of the season, the biggest cheers at the Bradley Center will probably be when Rodgers and his teammates show up to watch their next game.

Either way, let's accentuate the positive: if you're a Packer fan like us, drink it up and enjoy!  And be sure to follow all the details over at our SBN sister site Acme Packing Company.
