FAIL: What's a Packer?
Since it's a little slow today, I decided it would be worth grabbing a couple post-Superbowl vids that are still surfacing. This one is kind of sad.
Apparently no one knows why the Green Bay Packers are called the Packers. When I say no one, I'm talking about famous people. I'm sure every single Cheesehead could give me a detailed run down of how the name came to be. Unfortunately, none of the celebrities in attendance Sunday could figure out why they were called the Packers. Sadly, several Packer players also had no idea where the name came from, which is just depressing.
There was one man who knew how they got their name, however. Kevin Dillon. That's right, apparently Johnny Drama isn't just the best character on Entourage, he's also a sports historian. Who knew?
