This is a blog, where I share my thoughts on the world of sports. I grew up near Chicago, so most of my topics will mainly focus on Chicago based sports teams.

The Pack is back!

If you have read this blog, you would know that I am a DIE HARD Bears fan. It pains me to write this ,but the Green Bay Packers appear to be back! Brett Farve, Packer Quarterback, threw for 421 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Packers over the San Diego Chargers. This is the third victory in a row for the Pack. Their young defense and an inspired Favre are the driving force behind this winning streak. These victories are not against teams who were sub 500 last season. All three victories have come against playoff teams from last season( Eagles, Giants and Now Chargers).

It was two years ago when the Packers were an awful 4-12. Brett Farve lead the league in interceptions and the team looked to be in disarray. Coach Mike McCarthy had the tough task of rebuilding the Packers. The rebuilding process would take shorter than expected. Last season the Packers were 8-8 on the season and had playoff hopes. The Packers ended thier season on a positive note crushing the Bears at Solider field. Brett would decide after the Bears game whether to continue playing or retire.

Packer fans held their collective breath as Favre considered retirement. After watching his post-game interview, I thought Brett would call it a career. All of Wisconsin was overjoyed when Favre announced he would return. With his return this season, Brett has rewarded the Packer faithful with an 3-0 start.

Favre has all of Wisconsin smiling once again on Sundays.
