Wisconsin Football Celebrates Packers Win, Except For One Sad Bears Fan

Players from Wisconsin's football team watched the Packers-Bears game from their hotel in Orlando as they prep for the Capital One Bowl.

(Damn you, James Caan. Damn you to tearjerking hell.) But recently I came across an old LIFE… » 12/04/13 9:17am 12/04/13 9:17am
