Darren proceeded to pour gasoline on the fire by allowing four runs,… » 10/13/08 9:30am 10/13/08 9:30am

Packers Fans Tend To Be Wise And Capable Parents

You know about this by now, but it must be addressed. Well, it seems that some kids wear their Green Bay Packers clothing by choice. Others, not so much. When 36-year-old Matthew Kowald's 7-year-old son refused to wear a Packers jersey during Green Bay's playoff game with Seattle on Saturday, Kowald did the rational,… » 1/17/08 1:05pm 1/17/08 1:05pm
