It’s hard to believe it’s been six full years since I decided to start a Packers web site. Back in February of 2009, at the graphically challenged “Jersey Al’s Packers Blog,” I published my first article bidding farewell to Brett Favre. (It’s a pretty interesting read now, knowing what has transpired after that date).
It was Februry 11th, 2009, ten days after the Steelers had beaten the Cardinals in the Super Bowl. Favre had played out what we thought at the time was one last NFL season after being traded to the NY Jets. I thought it was time to say farewell to Brett and forgive & forget the events of the “Summer of Favre.”
Of course, farewell wasn’t really goodbye, as he later re-surfaced in the Purple and Gold of the Minnesota Vikings.
Somewhat like Brett Favre, we are saying goodbye here today (but with little drama), and with an immediate plan to re-surface elsewhere.
THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: ALLGBP.com is merging with CheeseheadTV.com.
The two sites where, in my opinion, you find the best writing in the Packers blogosphere outside of the Packers beat writers, will now be one. ALLGBP.com and it’s great team of writers will be moving it’s content over to what I consider the most technologically advanced and groundbreaking Packers site of all.
No need to panic, fans of ALLGBP.com. All the same writers and their regular columns will still be coming your way, just from a different site, CheeseheadTV.com.
So many people through the years have told me that ALLGBP.com and CheeseheadTV.com were the two sites they make sure to read regularly. Well, we just made it easier for you didn’t we?
To all of the loyal readers of ALLGBP.com, I can’t thank you enough for your support. I hope we’ve done our jobs of entertaining and informing, and I’m counting on you to follow us over to CheeseheadTV. If you don’t already have a login setup over there, please do it now. Our first post will be tomorrow morning (Monday) and you don’t want to miss a thing.
Initially, this announcement post will remain on ALLGBP.com for a week or so, after which we will redirect all ALLGBP.com traffic directly over to CheeseheadTV.com. And then we’ll work on getting the entire archive of ALLGBP.com posts copied over to CheesehadTV.com.
I’m incredibly excited for this “joining of forces.” I’m confident that together we will create an absolutely cant-miss experience for Packers fans across the globe.
See you over at CheeseheadTV.com…
