Every Green Bay Packers fan has faced this question at one point or another:
“Why the Packers?”
The fan then gives their reason for their apparent insanity. It could be the team’s tradition or it could be a family tradition or a Wisconsin birthright for those born in the Dairy State. Each fan has their own unique story as to how and why they became and still remain a Packers fan.
In rare circumstances, you may find yourself at a loss for words (because the Packers are so darn awesome) or you might have difficulty explaining your fandom to someone who prefers a much more visual medium.
If that’s the case here is WatchMojo.com’s Greatest Sports Franchises series on THE greatest sports franchise, the Green Bay Packers. It serves as a great “Packers 101” for anyone who knows little to nothing about the team’s history.
Those poor uneducated souls.——————
