Lambeau Playoff Debacle

I attended my first ever NFL playoff game yesterday, and watched the Packers self-destruct on their home field.  Over a half dozen dropped passes, three lost fumbles, poor tackling, and giving up a Hail Mary for Pete's sake cost this team their chances to repeat.  It also cost my company millions of dollars in sales.  Literally. 

Poof.  Gone.

The only good parts were the Hail Marys (not Manning's, but the one my wife is holding above) and an incredible fly-over by a B-1 bomber to start the game.  It was awesome to see one in the air, buzzing the stadium. 

As for the rest of the NFL, Tom Brady has to be the happiest guy on the planet right now, as his road to a 4th Super Bowl win just got a lot easier.  He looked like a man possessed this past weekend, and I don't think there's a team that can take him.  Personally, I'd like to see a NY / NE Superbowl and allow Brady to avenge his 2007 loss.

For the Pack, there's lots to fix, and a long off season to try and digest this mess.  As for work, I'm not sure how we comp last year's sales.  Maybe we need to open some stores in New England.  Quickly.
