January 15, 1967, Packers win the first Super Bowl

On January 15, 1967, the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) smash the American Football League (AFL)’s Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10, in the first-ever AFL-NFL World Championship, later known as Super Bowl I, at Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. The Packers’ famed quarterback, Bryan Bartlett "Bart" Starr, completed 16 of 23 passes on the night. The score at game’s end stood at 35-10, and Starr was named Most Valuable Player. Asked to comment on the match-up after the game, Green Bay Coach Vince Lombardi expressed the common opinion that even the best of the AFL--the Chiefs--"doesn’t compare with the top NFL teams."

So January 15 2011, the Packers play the Atlanta Falcons. Which will I root for? Hmm. Its hard. Well, I base most of my life choices on my favorite food of all things. I like cheese but I also like southern BBQ. Hmmmm. Well to quote the roaming gnome "I love a pungent, ghastly, STINKY piece of cheese!"
