In amusing NFL sports news throughout the Packers blogosphere, former Chicago Bears Head Coach Mike Ditka admitted to being a Pack fan now saying:
I'm still a Bear fan. I got a right to be a Bear fan. We won two championships in the last 60 years - I played on one and coached the other one. So I got a right. I'll always be a Chicago Bear. Now, I'm a Packer fan too - for one reason. First of all, I love the coach, he's from Pittsburgh. But Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in football - without question. He gets it, he understands, he's a class act. He's a great leader. I hope they give him a little more protection than they're giving him right now or he's going to get his (expletive) busted.
Of course, we all know that legendary Packers quarterback Bart Starr already knew it! Welcome aboard, Mike, to the greatest legends and traditions in the sports nation in Green Bay, WI of the Middle West.
