Did Giants fans steal this young fellow's lucky stocking cap last week? Do all true fans need a Clay Mathews mini-me on our side?
This family in Arizona is not divided in the relationship sense of the word, but the wife is a dedicated Packers fan and well, the husband suffers from a proclivity for the blue cheese of NY.
When the family bought their toddler daughter a Packers shirt before one of the longest winning streaks in NFL history started, the shirt became a weekly aspect of her garb.
When said tiny person decided (or was it a conspiracy orchestrated as a game-day scratch by the father?) not to wear the Packers shirt during the KC game, after 19 straight wins, everything in the Packers cosmological balance went haywire and a hapless, losing team with a coach named Romeo somehow beat the Packers.
Then, after careful painstaking statistical research, measuring the tides, orbits of the planets and the physics of football, the Giants fan husband came to a dangerous epiphany: "What if I hide the Packers shirt for the divisional playoff round?"
Once again, the most excellent green and gold ghosts of Lambeau, Lombardi and Andrew B. Turnbull must have been agitated as the Giants kept their arrogant promise of defeating America's team.
Here the baby exhibits her true allegiance to the Green and Gold.
Sticking With the Clothing Theme
A Packers fan in Mexico reports him and his wife were given Packers jerseys as a gift after last year's Super Bowl triumph. The idea was both members of the matrimony had to wear the jerseys on game day in solidarity. The husband explains, "On days when she didn't want to wear it and we argued, the Packers started slow (at Carolina and one of the Minnesota games).
For the Kansas City Chiefs game, she decided not to wear the jersey—we learned on that day what the jerseys meant."
Look out, fashion capital of the world New York City; fashion impacts the gridiron as much as the catwalk and Tim Gunn's reality show.
