Love is in the air for Packer fans on Sweetest Day. (Photo: Submitted)
There is an important date coming up for Green Bay Packers fans.
It’s not a game with the Bears.
It’s not the Super Bowl.
It’s not the dawn of the mock drafts, either.
Sweetest Day is Saturday.
A lot of people view this as a Hallmark holiday. That would be incorrect. A Hallmark holiday is when the Packers beat the Vikings by 20. Then everybody sends “Thank You” cards out to the team and coaches.
Thus this holiday must be taken seriously. Now this is no time for diamonds or chocolates because Packer stuff is much more valuable. And who wants to get chocolate all over their face?
So as a public service, the following items are suggested as gifts for your significant other. Since it is a pandemic, these are things you can buy off eBay while on your couch with a cold one. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Item: Green Bay Packers women’s shirt XL.
The skinny: It was worn only once. So it’s like new. And for $3.99, that’s like getting a Rolls Royce for a Volkswagen price.
Item: Green Bay Packers Ugly Sweat Socks
The skinny: Nothing screams “I Love You!” more than ugly sweat socks.
Item: New In The Box Santa Green Bay Packers Ornament
The skinny: That Claus fellow is wearing a Packers No. 25 jersey. Obviously Claus was a fan of Ryan “The Turtle” Grant. Since Christmas is coming right up, this could piggyback as a main Yuletide gift. Boy would that go over good.
Item: Green Bay Packer USPS 33-Cent Postage Stamp Unused
Price: 75 cents.
The skinny: It’s in mint condition. That doesn’t mean it tastes like mint if you want to use it. Don’t balk at paying 75 cents for a 33-cent stamp, either. You’re saving hundreds by not being able to tailgate.
Item: Green Bay Packers Football Team NFL Halloween Pumpkin Carving Kit w/6 Stencils
The skinny: Pumpkins are sold separately.
Item: Green Bay Packers 8 Bic Lighters Different Designs
The skinny: These are great to light and hold up when you hear the fake crowd do the “Go Pack Go!” chant.
Item: Green Bay Packers Canvas High Top Shoes
The skinny: They’re pre-owned, but there isn’t a spec of dirt on them. Everybody wins.
Item: NFL Fanny Pack Green Bay Packers
The skinny: It’s about time fanny packs moved back into the spotlight. Think of how happy she’ll be wearing this with her best formal gown.
Item: Green Bay Packers Riddell Mini Speed Football Helmet
The skinny: What woman wouldn’t want to wear a mini helmet on her left ring finger instead of a Marquise diamond?
