Flogging A Dead Horse... 

Three NFL football players were set to face a firing squad in a small Central American country.  The first player, Brett, a Green Bay Packer was placed against the wall and just before the order was given he yelled out, "Earthquake!"  The firing squad fell into a panic and Brett jumped over the wall and escaped in the confusion.  The second player, Joey, a Detroit Lion was placed against the wall.  The squad was reassembled and Joey pondered what he had just witnessed.  Again before the order was given Joey yelled out "Tornado!".  Again the squad fell apart and he was able to slip over the wall.  The last person, an alleged Viking player, Chris Hovan, was placed against the wall.  He was thinking "I see the pattern here, just scream out something about a disaster and hop over the wall."  He confidently refused the blindfold as the firing squad was reassembled.  As the rifles were raised in his direction he grinned from ear to ear and yelled...   "Fire!"

Me and Mr. Walker 

  TCB - Contributing Writer for Packer Palace.

‘Tis that most wonderful time of the year, when the muggy days of August contain the ”it can’t get much worse” promise of cooler fall nights, and NFL training camps are underway. Sure, training camp and pre season games aren’t like the real thing, but for a football junkie at least they’re methadone. And having been forced to kick the habit since the draft, even crappy methadone seems like uncut Afghani heaven when compared to baseball.

This, and all other columns about the Packers, will be written not by me alone but with the ever useful help of Mr. Walker, aka Johnny Walker Red. I might break out the black label for special occasions like Monday night games, the playoffs, and when the Packers play the Vikings. Mr. Walker will add his thrifty Scot advice and opinion on occasion, throughout this column. This week we’ll look at the first two pre season games, a few camp battles, and a quick tour of the 2003 offense. Next week we’ll cover the defense and the next pre season game. Go Packers!

Lucky 13... 

Submitted by one of our Packer Palace Fanatic's:

First, let me say that I am not superstitious in the least. I don't believe in that stuff. But there are some noteworthy peculiarities with the number 13 this year as far as the Pack is concerned. The following are facts:
1) Mike Sherman is the 13th head coach of our beloved Packers,
2) Brett is entering his 13th year as a Green Bay Packer,
3) The Packers are going after their 13th championship,
4) KGB was ranked by USA Today as the NFL's 13th best defensive lineman, or maybe DE, I can't remember which.

And then, of course, you can have a little fun with this "13" thing:

1) The ultimate trophy, and greatest name in coaching, "Vince Lombardi," has 13 letters. Of course, his real name is Vincent, but that doesn't work.
2) The 39th Super Bowl is this year's destination (GB's three previous SB wins times, you guessed it, 13, equals 39).

Of course, you can make numbers work the way that you want them to. But, the first items mentioned are true!

Well, like I said at the start, I don't believe in that crap. For example, after narrowly missing a black cat that ran across the front of our car, my wife says, "Uh oh, you know what that means?" And I said, "Yeah, that was one lucky-ass puss!" Any way, maybe some one else out there can add to this "Lucky 13" thing??? The coincidences are interesting at least!!!
