It’s not exactly the hair of the dog that bit you, but maybe a jog down memory lane will help us cure our “Super Bowl expectations that feel short” hangover that we have all been experiencing since the Green Bay Packers’ season ended three weeks ago.
There have been a lot of memorable moments in the five Super Bowls the Packers have played in, so narrowing the list to five moments was a daunting task. This is by no means a definitive list, so you may have something else in mind. That’s fine. This was meant to be a fun post, not necessarily one for totally serious debate.
Keep in mind I am 28, so Super Bowls XXXI and XLV will be fresh in my head. I have seen highlights of the first two Super Bowls but never viewed them in their entirety.
That said, here’s my top five:
5. Max McGee’s performance in Super Bowl I
Paul Hornung went down and McGee came in. Problem is McGee was hungover.
Thinking he wasn’t going to play much, McGee skipped curfew the night before the game and went out drinking. Personally, I would not have between so stupid with Lombardi around but it is what it is I guess.
McGee ended up catching 140 yards and likely would have been Super Bowl MVP had Bart Starr not had his great performance.
4. Vince Lombardi’s final ride
It’s an image engrained in every Packer fan’s head.
