The Green Bay Packers win Superbowl XLV

Last Sunday, February 6th we watched our hometown Green Bay Packers win Superbowl XLV.
The park hosted a superbowl pizza party in the clubhouse but after consuming our fill of pizza, Teddy and I opted to watch the game here in our fifth wheel......less distractions. Here in Arizona, rather than in Wisconsin, the Packer fan base is in a minority. Most of the folks here in the park were more interested in socializing than in watching the game. Also we get a much better picture in HD here in the trailer than on the clubhouse video projector.
Following are some game stills taken from the GB web site.

Hate to say it, but the Vikings could learn a thing or two from the Packers. http://www.tchuddle.com/2011/02/vikings-could-learn-a-lot-from-packers-gulp/

Love it. I was backing Packers. I am a big Colt's fan, but wanted Rodgers to win in the worse way. He was my brother's favorite new Quarter back, and he just passed in November. It was a very meaningful game to me.
