Chris Havel said:Ryan Longwell is easy to like.
He has a quick wit and an engaging personality, and his heart, like his field-goal attempts, is almost always in the right place.
That is why Longwellâ€™s condescending comments about Green Bay and the Packers were especially distasteful, not to mention unprovoked and unnecessary. In an article that appeared in Mondayâ€™s St. Paul Pioneer Press, Longwell made an obvious and awkward attempt to ingratiate himself with his new fans.
Naturally, the surest way to suck up to Minnesota Vikings fans is to crack on Green Bay and the Packers. Here is a sampling of Longwellâ€™s comments:
â€œEvery town in America has an Applebeeâ€™s restaurant. In Green Bay, Applebeeâ€™s was about as fancy as you got. When my wife, Sarah, and I would get a baby sitter, a nice date night was Applebeeâ€™s. In Minnesota, Iâ€™m sure there will be plenty of options before Applebeeâ€™s comes into the rotation.â€
