    This is just for fun, but I was wondering if you guys can think of weird little things that point to why the Super Bowl is our destiny this year?

    My one thing that I've been riding on is the Super Bowl is on FOX this year which is the same network host of '96

    Plus Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have broadcast every single elimination game for the Packers, and they will broadcast the Super Bowl as well.

    As much as I hate to use this example for obvious reasons, it makes sense, 05 Steelers, beat the 1, 2, and 3 seeds on the road in route to a Super Bowl victory

    As a House fan, Hugh Laurie is going to the game, and as long as he picks us to win that adds to my confidence (he's a Brit who knows little to nothing about football, but he went to the '07 SB and blindly picked the Giants to win. I like his instincts :p)

    I got tickets to this Super Bowl through a very strange coincidence:

    - When I was very young my Step-Dad loved the Broncos (Elway fan) and at the time I wasn't my step-dads biggest fan, so when the first game we watched was the Pack take on the Broncos in SB 35 I rooted hard for the Pack - unfortunately we lost but after that game I was hooked.

    - I've never been to a live football game before but have watched plenty (I'm from LA and we haven't had a team since I've lived here) and this year my step-dad got 2 great SB tickets through Fox and offered them to me as a late birthday present because he can't go.

    Needless to say the Pack is now in the SB, it will be my first time at a game and the guy who got me hooked (because I had problems with him at the time) got me tickets to see it all happen live. All very strange coincidences but everything happens for a reason, especially when they are leading up to destiny!

    I feel like this is our year and I can't wait..

    My GF finally got into the Pack and watches them with me now. Ever since she started donning my CM3 jersey, we haven't lost. Onward!

    This is digging deep, but FAvRe was in his 6th season in the NFL and so is Rodgers!!! Both have similar stats on their Super Bowl runs besides FAvRe's TDs being phenomenal.

    Rodgers:
    Year Team G S Comp Att Pct Yds YPA Td Int Rate Att Yds Avg Td Fum Lost
    2010 GNB 15 15 312 475 65.7 3,922 8.3 28 11 101.2 64 356 5.6 4 4 1

    FAvRe:
    1996 GB 16 16 325 543 59.9 3,899 7.2 39 13 95.8 49 136 2.8 2

    Just finding some info

    Packers want it more. Home jerseys and we have over came more obstacles not caused by stupid personal decisions.

    If I don't wear Packer gear during a game, they win. Go figure.

    I read that since 1998-2004 (artiicle was written in 04 so I don't know if the trend continues) that the most valuable franchise has won the SB (even if they were underdogs).

    GB is more valuable than the Steelers. From Forbes 2010 in MIL.

    14 Green Bay Packers 1,018 0 2 242 9.8 15 Cleveland Browns 1,015 -2 15 242 36.1 16 Miami Dolphins 1,011 0 40 247 -7.7 17 Pittsburgh Steelers 996 -2 25 243 17.9

    Ha true true. Normally I wouldn't want Buck and Troy doing the games but as long as we win just one more game this season I'm fine with it.
