The Lombardi Trophy

Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi

 The Lombardi Trophy goes home to Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin where it belongs!
The Green Bay Packers 31  The Pittsburgh Steelers 25

I seek your indulgence!  The image of the trophy is not mine, but the other three were taken during our annual trips "home" to visit relatives and to introduce my grandkids to the Shrine and the lore of the Packers. After the game Sunday night I think I will be forgiven for bending the rules of CDP.

Click on the images to get a better look at the statues, which I know you want to do!!


  1. I forgive you, Kate, but I still have no idea as to what's going on.

    What is a "pigskin palace?"

    Why is "plummeting down the first round of the 2005 draft" an "agonizing plight."?

    What is a "most storied franchise"?

    All from the New York Times

  2. I think no one could hold it against you...though many would like to hold it along with you.

  3. WAHOO! They did it! Great! Awesome! Super!
    You slept in a Packer jersey last night, didn't you Great Kate?!
    : - )

  4. Congratulations!

  5. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSn Superbe victoire de Green bay, j'avais parié pour eux. C'etait un beau match

  6. What an awesome game last night! I admit, they had me a little worried in the third quarter, but they rallied and held on. I'm loving modern technology right now as I got to watch the team return to GB on my computer at work--and I didn't have to risk frost bite to do it. :)

  7. I think jb's questions are hilarious. Football would make no sense to a non-American. I have occasionally watched a cricket match on TV and had the identical reaction.

    Congrats to the Pack.

  8. Now how did I know you were going to post something like this. Congrats to your team!

  9. Congratulations for the Packers. And your photos are great for the celebration.
