|What's been going on? Long, long story, very short. Days off, Packers not doing too much, Work gives me notice, more days off, bought a new IMac computer, love it, severance check in the mail and the future says I have many more days off yet to come, sounds like a summer vacation to me. Now I just need the Packers to make the summer interesting.|
I'm sure this has been said in every Packers forum, hell, every NFL forum in regards to sitting-around-like-BeerKid-doing-nothing Daunte Culpepper... Daunte, fire your agent!!! That's you, in case you are not smart enough to remember. Not like I wanted him in Green Bay backing up our current QB Aaron Rodgers, but geez dude, TT offered you a maybe low-ball offer of a Million to back up a 1st time starter. Should have taken the money, after all, you couldn't beat out Joey Harrington or Luke McCown while in Miami, and in Oakland, well you didn't beat any of their stiff QB's either. No one's breaking the bank for you, although I guess some team will be dumb enough to take a chance, the Packers came awfully close.
Speaking of breaking some things... RB Noah Herron's tale of burglar-beatdown is fascinating. Long-time wanted suspects in the area, and they picked a house where, well, they picked the wrong house that night, the one got clobbered twice by the Bedpost Vigilante, that's Noah Herron to the rest of you, and needed the ambulance to come rescue his sorry hide. I love it. Noah, you be the Man!!!
It's nice to know that QB Aaron Rodgers has cleaned himself up a little bit with a shave and a haircut, and actually made it through a mini-camp without an injury. I'm going to go out on a limb right now and say that "Aaron is more durable than any of us Packers fans are ready to believe" and I'm not going to worry about anything, at least for a week or two...
BeerKid - Always Pack 4 Life!
Hello there. I come to flame and talk trash. I think the fudge packers wil be in for a rude awakening when Erin Rogers tries to take over where Burnt fart left off. You guys are aware of that right? The Vikings have the best team and the best QB's in the division. The fudge packers have zero nfl starts on their roster!
Hey Vikqueen Fan, You want to talk defensive line, we can talk defensive line, but otherwise the Vikes got next to nothing. A big time RB who the Pack knocked out of the game last year in 34-0 rout. You have weak head coach, a QB whose NFL starts looked like a 3rd string QB running the show, so face the facts, it's not time for you to run out and get that Super Bowl Tattoo on your forehead yet, the Vikqueens always look good on paper, yet never deliver. Why is that? BK
Hey Vikings fans, your football team wears purple clothes, and you fans wear purple clothes and blonde pigtails.
Grown men wearing purple clothes and pigtails and calling themselves football fans... think about that some time.
And take a look at their roster--they are lacking for depth on both the O-line and the D-line. If they get a lineman or two injured, especially on D, they will disintegrate with Jackson having to do too much on O. I'm not even sure who they're going to start at the other DE opposite Jared "Drunken Mullet" Allen.
To the Wiping fan. The Wipings still haven't adjusted to losing Fredd COCKS and Fran TARTINBUN.
Hey Packer Cricket, the early 70's is all a Vikqueens fan has... some even claim they have a 1969 NFL Championship, even though they couldn't win SuperBowl III against the KC Chiefs to finish that season. The Packers have 9 NFL Championships to go along with 3 Super Bowl victories for a total of 12 NFL Championship Titles. Nobody's done it better! The Vikings? That would be zero. BK
I haven't seen this one on your site. Do you have It?
Hey Jim, No I had not seen that... thanks for sending the Cheesehead Da Vinci pic in... Fine Art at it's best! Awesome! BK
WTF?!? Could this be true? Calling all TT doubters ... "Cull-Pecker" is no more worth than "League Minimum," but the most disturbing thing for me is that Thompson even CONSIDERED "Cull-Pecker" as a back up to Aaron "Buck" Rodgers and offered this overrated,ego-maniac a one year deal. Unbelievable!!!
Report: Culpepper turned down Packers
June 23rd, 2008 – 8:21 PM by Judd Zulgad
The Ocala, Fla., newspaper published a story Sunday in which former Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper confirmed he turned down a $1 million, one-year offer from the Green Bay Packers. Culpepper gave few other details of what happened — “It just wasn’t good for either side,” he said — and added that he’s “in talks with a couple of different team’s right now.” He did not identify the clubs. Remember, Culpepper serves as his own agent.
This story originally surfaced last weekend in the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The Packers also talked to Quinn Gray and Gus Frerotte, who ended up signing with the Vikings. Gray signed with Houston but already has been released.
The Packers, of course, have Aaron Rodgers set to replace the retired Brett Favre as their starting quarterback. They also drafted two quarterbacks in April, taking Brian Brohm (Louisville) in the second round and Matt Flynn (LSU) in the seventh round.
Hey BeerKid, everyone................ What do you think about the Taylor possibility. KGB, Kampman, Jenkins and Taylor across the front on passing downs. Then again Jolly was doing a nice job of messing up the passing lanes before he got hurt. They may have made the SB if he didn't get hurt, I think. But like I always say, you can never have too many good D-linemen. Anyway, thoughts out there as to if that could be the difference this year to make the SB?????
Long Live the Pack!!!
Hey Long Live The Pack, DE Jason Taylor would certainly help the Packers Defense, he's still a player, he could be a leader, some current opinion says he has 2 good years left, his opinion is that GB is not a big enough market for his post-NFL career that he's already launching, and the big question, it's not if we know he can dance, but would TT trade a 2nd round pick to the Dolphins for him. BK
Can we please get this season started already?! I hate this time of year,hockey?.. over. Basketball finals?.... over. Even top chef? OVER!! I've exhausted all my old tapes, vs raiders 03, vs b---rs 97 etc. nothing helps! Nevermind I think I'll take the kids for a walk.... To the bottleshop! ha ha GO PACK GO!! Always worth the wait!!
Big Ern said so!!!!
Hey Big Ern, with all these extra days off, I ended up cleaning the place up and well, I threw out every single VHS tape I had, 'cept for the some 60 tapes that had Packers game on them. I might be un-employed for the moment, but I'm not stupid. BK
Let's try to be objective here. The jelling of the offensive line had as much to do with Grant's success as anything, and the lack of talent on the opponents D Line. Were was Grant during the NFC Championship Game? He was, after all, the 5th back on the Giants depth chart, and maybe TT and MM view him in that light compared to the rest of the league. A serviable back, and our best option at the moment. Did the release of Gado surprise you, or was Gado just a feel good story that was one of the few bright spots that was touted during that subpar season.
I like Grant. Shawn Aleaxander had his moment in the sun, but when the O-line lost it's prime mover, he was toast. Grant will get what he is worth to this team, and nothing more.
Hey Biff, Ryan Grant runs harder than any RB currently on the team. Besides Noah Herron who didn't make it into the regular season, Grant was only RB who seems to understand the cutback into open field. I like what I've heard on Brandon Jackson beefing up some on the offseason. I'm not sure that the O-Line was jelling on any level last year, there were alot of shuffling around due to inconsistent play and injury, some of those players won't be on the roster this year. One thing that could be a problem, Grant's running style, a punishing one, doesn't give him much of a long-term future in the league. TT should pay him what he deserves, a large chunk of cash. BK
Hey BK, long time no write. Just read an article about Javon Walker. First he was sent to Oakland (didn't know that) second, apparently he was hospitalized in Las Vegas after an attempted robbery. He was last seen partying in a casino, and was later found on the street off the strip. They say his injuries were significant. That's too bad, you never like to hear stories like this about anyone. Hope he'll pull through ok.
On a lighter note, can't wait for pre-season. Going stir-crazy waiting for kick off. At least there's golf, baseball, bowling, tennis, etc. etc. (hee hee) Seriously, just anxious to see what we're going to do this year. GO PACK!!
Hey Lady K, generally no one wishes ill will on anyone, and I don't towards Javon Walker, his story changed over several days and then finally the surveillance tapes came out and showed him getting into the car on his own, I believe that they have suspect in custody. Cabin Fever, Stir-Crazy, I am suffering from the same affliction. Is it like walking on eggshells? I want the season to start, the Packers with Aaron Rodgers have a major unknown at QB for the first time in many years, so I guess I'm eager with trepidation for the season to start. BK
Here is the new international symbol for gasoline...
Flooding in my home stste of Iowa, gas at 4 bucks a gallon, and now I hear the da Bears let Cedric "the drinker" Benson go??
Is the world ending? What is next...the Metrodome will replace that annoying Viking horn with Lawrence Welk music?
Okay, I know we're not all about Brett anymore, but Happy Father's Day to Breleigh and Brittany's dad! And everyone elses!
Okay....so Packers Family night is not a real game, but it is fun. I have attended for a number of years and spent a lot of hours on the web and phone trying to buy decent seats for our family. It sort of irritates me that the Packers are not straight up on this. It is quite obvious that some people have access to the best seats while the rest of us fight over steerage. I don't mind it if I get a bad seat by chance, but if they are offering the best seats to insiders and others, why not admit it. The website went down about a half hour into the process on Saturday and that forced me to the Ticketmaster phone system. While I keep trying only to get shown endzone seats in the higher rows, I see some guy has 50 yard line seats for sale on eBay at $60 each. When I inquired, he told me he just bought them from Ticketmaster like everyone else. That is a pile of crap since those caliber of seats are not being offered to regular fans. I would like the Packers to fess up and tell us which seats are actually spoken for before the process even starts for regular folks.
Packer Junkie, I feel your pain; I've been on the wrong side of the river for over twenty years now, but we can take consolation in the fact that we have never been, and never will be, fair-weather fans. As a devoted Pack4Life fan, just smile knowingly as Vikings fans ride their roller coaster year after year after year.

|You never win a game unless you beat the guy in front of you. The score on the board doesn't mean a thing. That's for the fans. You've got to win the war with the man in front of you. You've got to get your man.|
What Packers fan doesn't long for those hot summer nights with oft-repeated and most-favored stories about the difficulties and down-right funny tales of woe that come out of the state of 10,000 loons on an annual basis.
This week's Rockwood Re-Run is a favored tale of Vikqueen comedy that takes us back a few years to the roiling waters of Lake Minnetonka with The Vice Boat. A classic tale of near-pro football players taking a ride around the lake while featuring all the beer, women and nasty dancing a near-pro football player like Daunte Culpepper could ever dream about.
Double featured with another perennial cheesehead favorite, comes advice not taken in Get Smart. It takes brains to run a NFL team, something the Vikqueens organization certainly has never been accused of. Watch in laughter as even the presence of a tiny fake superbowl trophy causes the hugest... we won't spoil your expectations, but rest assured, that former head coach Mike Tice was able to successfully scalp his gameday tickets after another year of non-success.

Someone explain to me the Ryan Grant contract issues. I mean, if it's a forgone conclusion the Pack will sign him WITH an extended contract, why not just do it. Or is a question of dollar amount. Seems to me with Grant's impressive performance last year, the Pack should do everything in can to sign him now. It's a vote of confidence from management that Grant deserves.
Hey Jeff, The contract situation for RB Ryan Grant sums up this way, he's a restricted agent with only a few years of NFL activity, so the Packers offered him a low-ball offer based on that status, he won't sign that 1 year offer, he won't physically contribute in any of the offseason work-outs except the mandatory one, he wants a contract based on his contribution last year and what he brings to the table as a NFL starting caliber RB this year. So everyone knows he'll get the long-term contract, but who knows exactly when, my guess is before the 1st preseason game. BK
Fellow Packer Fans - I am a die-hard Packers fan living in MN, and I must say the football fans here make me want to gag. I seem to go through the same shit here every year with these losers, which gets quite annoying after a while. It starts off with a few overrated acquisitions in free agency, followed by a draft filled with future busts. This, followed by a loss or two in free agency by the Pack, makes for da Vikes fans to get big ego's and say how they will stomp us in the division in the upcoming year. They talk about how they are such diehard vikes fans, and when the Vikes start off well their ego's get super-inflated. Eventually The Vikes choke, and lose a bunch of games to mediocre opponents, and all the fans abandon ship (like the little pun there?). When I ask about their team I usually get the same response, "I never liked the Vikes anyways." This seemingly annual tradition just makes me sick. When the Pack, and specifically Favre choked against the G-Men U wouldn't believe the crap I got from these losers. These people are the reason I love WI so much, and I cant wait to get out of this hellhole and move into God's Country next door
Thanks to Lemondrop and Lee for both forwarding this in, although we already provided a Public Service Announcement concerning this important issue, it's been 2 months and we all like this kind of reminder. Thanks. BK
They say that opinions are like a**holes....everyone has one. I am afraid that the internet has given everyone with a computer the expertise to be a sports commentator. (including me) That leads to a lot of expression of opinion under the guise of fact. I don't really know if Aaron Rogers will be a great or even good quarterback, but at least I am willing to give him a few games to show his stuff. Those who want to pound on him now are free to do so, but you look kind of foolish with few facts to back up your opinions.
I just watched the replay of the 2004 4th and 26 Eagles playoff game. I think Mike Sherman deserves blame for the loss. If only....
Hey Scott, If only, after running the ball with Ahman Green very successfully the whole drive down the field, Sherman has the team punt the ball short on 4th and 1 and... Brett Favre didn't have that penchant for launching the ball deep down the middle of field to "create a big play" that always leads to the INT... I agree, if only... BK
Cedric Benson is busted running a red light and refusing a breath test and a blood test. I thought the cops could make you give blood... Now I don't know if I should be happy or pissed. Obviously I should be happy that one of Jerry Angelo's finest crackheads got busted and will probably get a suspension. But I'm pissed because that means they'll have somebody new in the backfield. Benson sucked, so now there's at least the potential that the FIBs might replace this idiot with a decent running back.
What's the difference between Soldier Field and a porcupine? One has 60,000 pricks on the outside and the other has 60,000 pricks on the inside.
Hey there BK! Not exactly Beef cake, but when I found this pic of Arod at Post Gazette, It reminded me of Clyde Crashcup... a scientist in a white coat whose experiments invariably failed, from Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoon show from the 60's
Eerie resemblance, doncha think? LOL
Lemondrop (Drumming her fingers waiting for the scary season to start)
your logo page is great! i love it. i need to know who is in charge of it so i can email him/her/them and let them know! you guys need to keep them coming and i'd love to see some mlb, nba, and nhl logos up there too! even have some ideas if you're willing to hear them. regardless, love the site, really love the page, and i can't wait to see more! thanks.
Hey Munkee, thanks, as mostly everyone knows, BeerScout did all the old ones and JM noticed that lack of continuing effort by ourselves, so he went gonzo and created a ton more, which I need to get around to adding. BK
Chimay is an ale, not a lager. Maybe not a big deal to "joe 6-pack", and honestly not a big deal to me that you've got it wrong all over your website, but if you don't want to look dumb in the eyes of a bunch of beer-snobs....
Hey Travis, I'm frequently wrong on the Packers, Beer, Women and anything else one cares to venture forth... But I don't mind being corrected. Thanks for checking in and one of these days I'll actually look at the Chimay label and notice that the word "lager" doesn't appear anywhere. Drink Chimay! Go Pack! BK
| Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.|
|Harken back to the pre-flash days of yester-year gone bye-bye, all the way back to 1997 when animated gifs were the rage. When the Packers were Kings and fresh off their Super Bowl XXXI win, and somehow the Vikqueens had real Super Bowl hopes on their horizon.|
They had real men playing for them, like Chris Carter, and on paper, they were primed for their 1st Super Bowl win ever!!! So what happened to the Vikqueen raiding party in 1997? They lost in Green Bay 38-32 and in the Dome 27-11 and finished behind the Packers tied for third place at 9-7. Suckers!
History can repeat itself you know, even after only 11 years. The Vikqueens quest for a Super Bowl this year is hitting overdrive with the latest news out of Minnehaha. Preseason Crowned Super Bowl Champs!!!
Ummm, no. Hey but us fans of the Green Bay Packers will take the bait. We're just waiting for that hook to be set on the Packers regular season opening Monday Night Football game at hallowed Lambeau Field. Come on over to our favorite spot, bring your gear, it may now be 2008, still the Fish Are Biting in Green Bay! Go Pack!

How To Impress A Woman...
Compliment her, cuddle her, kiss her, caress her, love her, stroke her, comfort her, protect her, hug her, wine and dine her, buy gifts for her, listen to her, respect her, stand by her, support her, go to the ends of the earth for her.

That would be Charles Bamforth, professor and brewmaster at UC-Davis on how even though beer has gotten a bad-boy image recently in comparison to wine, it has the same historical roots and may be more responsible for civilization. In his eyes (and ours) beer comes across as the superior beverage. His book Grape vs. Grain: A Historical, Technological, and Social Comparison of Wine and Beer makes the perfect gift for the brew master and connoisseur in your home.

BeerKid - Always Pack 4 Life!
Sunday, June 01, 2008
So many things wrong this week... First it was that QB Aaron Rodgers was upset that Brett Favre's locker with shoulder pads was still intact, and how could AR keep his focus on the upcoming season with BF's locker only 10ft away. OMG!!! That report was ummm, how do you say it. Oh yeah, WRONG!
Then the story devolved into the Packers keeping a locker for a retiring player under some odd, weird reason. The reason appeared to be "because you only "retire" dead guys lockers or something, I don't know, I couldn't quite follow what the blabber was actually about. I do know it was however, WRONG!
Turns out the Packers were just waiting for some professionals to come in and remove the locker so it could be given to Brett Favre himself, maybe destined for Canton or some other gridiron museum. Lot's of Packers talk this week... to bad almost all of it was WRONG!
BeerKid - Always Pack 4 Life!
I think it's sad that most people, even die-hard packer fans like myself, are rooting for Aaron Rodgers to fail. I know I am going off of one game but i think against the Cowturds that Aaron not only showed that he can be a quality QB but maybe even a great one. Remember everybody no one knew who Steve Young was either. Packers 4 life and even after it!
Hey Dan, I don't think we're rooting for AR to fail, it's more the show me what you can do attitude. Most of us expect him to be injured fairly quickly. I have bets with 2 friends, one on him getting injured in the first preseason game, and the other by the fourth game of the regular season. I doubled down and told them they were both right. I never am, so AR should be safe from harm. You look at other QB's in the league, and AR looks like he's one of the better ones, certainly in the NFC North. Can't hardly wait to watch him actually play. BK
BEARS STILL SUCK.........
Hey BillyBoy... an unrelenting sentiment shared by Big Ern, myself, and many others... Welcome to the ever-burgeoning club! BK
You know what I'd love to see (besides a full confession from mike ditka about him and urlachkers shower time)Is for Rogers to come out and toss a 50 yarder for a touch down to start us off this season so people can just relax and give the dude a shot..... hey at least he's not grossman!! or toni romo what a couple of douches! I'd rather watch a dog make poop than watch those two feebly attempt a pass... also lets thank our lucky charms we passed on ferrot! GO PACK GO!!!
Big Ern said so!!!!
Hey BK, How about some cool graphics of some packers playing golf!!!! Maybe Vince, Fuzzy and Ray Nitchke!!!! Its soooo boring until training camp!!!!!!!!
Hey Packman, that sounds like a slippery slope, first it's Packers playing golf, then softball, then basketball, I'm just going to stick with Beer, Football and Babes. BK
BeerKid, you're right. I would love for Rodgers to kick ass (I love Chico, CA his hometown) but he's going to pull his hammy going to the fridge for a beer this summer. He's fragile. I hope I'm wrong.
Regarding the nectar of the fun gods (BEER) I think Benjamin Franklin said it best "Beer is living proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy."..... Thank you Ben... I am happy. Oh yeah, you still suck b--rs!!!
Big Ern said so!!!!
