I’ve always wondered what professional athletes put on their wish lists for Christmas, especially the ones with a large contract. After all, having millions or even just tens of thousands of dollars at your disposal can pretty much buy you whatever you want. Fortunately, I have managed to put my curiosity to rest this week.
Through some careful reconnaissance work, I was able to secure a sampling of items that various Green Bay Packers players and coaches have put on their Christmas lists this year. And in the spirit of giving, I have decided to share the findings with you.
So without any further ado, I present to you the 2011 Green Bay Packers Christmas Wish List:
Aaron Rodgers – “Defensive Cookbook: The NFL’s Top 10 Recipes For Stopping High-Powered Offenses”
Ryan Grant – 20 carries in a single game
James Starks – Black reflective sunglasses, a trenchcoat, and the red pill

LOL! Nice! Especially Raji and Green.. just. Awesome.
By the by, after the 2nd game I went on chtv and stated in the comments section that TT screwed up by not resigning Big Sexy. I was crucified by Nagler the most – but there were others (many of them).
I don’t take pleasure in being wrong – but I wish I would have been wrong this time. TT screwed up – and between that messup and injuries at OL, I hope it doesn’t cost us all back to back championships. I have a bad feeling…
You are absolutely right on the Jenkins thing. You are now the official GB Nostodomus (sp?)
A great laugh Chad.
The red pill? Heard something about the blue pill. Guess I’m too old.
