I'm a NFL owner, NO SHIT!!

Yesterday a stock sale for Green Bay Packers stock started.  I bought one share which will give me one vote(on what I don't know yet) and no special privileges what-so-ever other than bragging rights!!  

Sample illustration of the stock certificate I should receive in a couple of weeks.
They are going to use the money raised from the sale of stock to make improvements to their stadium, which strikes me as a better deal than begging for taxpayer money to build a new stadium or the team will leave like so many other teams have threatened, you know, the ones owned by Billionaires!!!!!!  Because the Packers are owned by shareholders in Green Bay and other areas, they can't leave.

  2. K,
    I knew the name L-Anse but had forgotten where it was - I went up US 41 to the end on the Keewenaw Peninsula during the two weeks of summer the UP has in August. Sharon went wading - I thought she was going to freeze her toes off in Superior.
    KI Sawyer - 76 -77 - I think like 15 months - Put in for Alaska to get away from KI.
    Brrrr...

  3. Gillette Stadium was paid for by Robert Kraft, the Patriots owner. Some billionaires do step up. It was a smart move on his part. He's made his money back and more.

  5. CFLs Saskatchewan Roughriders is owned by its fans likewise. Never or rarely at least, the best team, it has the best fans in the country. Green and white fill the stands at home and away games. I think that the packers are on to a good thing.

  6. That is hands down the coolest thing about the Packers. It totally makes up for them beating the Lions on Thanksgiving :)

  8. Actually, I think it has nothing to do with freedom of speech but I guess there isn't anything in the constitution about freedom of expression or artistic license.
