In the NFL, the various team names are pretty self-explanatory. For example the Dolphins are named after a sea mammal... The Bills are named after the famous Buffalo Bill... The Steelers are named after Pittsburgh's blue-collar, steel plant workers... Most teams really don't need to be explained except for Green Bay. Can anyone tell me where the team name "Packer" came from? Exactly what do they "pack"??? :lol:

Somehow, I don't think that is the right answer.

No, you can "respond in kind". What`s good for one is good for all. My whole point initially was that children read these pages and to use your heads. That stands.

Is "fudge packer" crossing the line? Hell, I don`t know....call him a pecker checker.
