The last time Green Bay went to a Super Bowl was in January of 1998. That does not sound like a long time ago, but it is 13 years.
There was no Bowl Championship Series in college football, and only 64 teams went to March Madness.
In 1998, the Detroit Red Wings swept the Washington Capitals to win the Stanley Cup. Scotty Bowman was the coach, and Steve Yzerman was still the captain.
In basketball, the Chicago Bulls beat the Utah Jazz to win the NBA Finals, and the University of Kentucky won their seventh National Championship in NCAA Men's Basketball.
The New York Yankees swept the San Diego Padres to win the World Series.
Do you remember all of this? Do you remember where you were?
I was in eighth grade in my hometown in Michigan. My older brother was a senior, heading in to his second semester when the Packers last went to a Super Bowl.
Here is where all of the projected Packers starters where when John Elway and the Denver Broncos beat the Packers in Super Bowl XXXII.
