Picture Of The Day: Lingerie Bowl Wardrobe Malfunction
What’s A Packer? (Video)
Few people actually know the answer to this question, and that should come as no surprise seeing as how their symbol is a “G”, their colors are green and yellow, and their fans wear giant blocks of cheese on their heads. I was just about as puzzled as most, until Entourage’s Kevin Dillon informed me that it is a reference to meat packers.
According to Wikipedia:
Curly Lambeau, the team’s founder, solicited funds for uniforms from his employer, the Indian Packing Company. He was given $250 for uniforms and equipment, on condition that the team be named for its sponsor…An early newspaper article referred to the new Green Bay team as “the Indians” but by the time they played their first game they had adopted the name “Packers.”
That would be the correct answer. Here are several incorrect ones from various players and celebrities.
