P.S. I own one whole entire share of the Packers. I used to hang out at a sports bar in Houston that was the home of the Houston Packers fan club. Even though the Packers are a national team with fans who probably couldn't find WI on a map if they tried, they all have one common trait... deep hatred of the Bears.

The bar would have every current NFL game somewhere on one of the TVs. I'd get there early and beg to have one tuned to the Lions game near the giant TV so I could watch both of them at once.

They'd have pity on the hapless Lions, but deep hatred for the Bears. When the Bears opponent scored, the cheers for that were almost as loud as for a Green Bay TD.

I guess the Lions are so pitiful that they cou;ldn't even work up a good hate for them.
