Just bought 1 share of Green Bay Packer stock. Packers are the only community owned, non corportate team in the league.

I saw that they were selling stock again. I thought about it but I can't stand the Packers!

I'm not into sports very much, but I was into watching the Packer's recent winning streak. It's too bad that it's finally been broken.

Competetitive sports are an opiate (or should I say a crystal-meth) for the masses. They serve to divert our attention away from real life issues and get us to spend our spare time growing beer guts as couch potatoes. In Sacramento, there are thousands of homeless. There are tent cities along the riverbanks, and panhandlers at every gas station and shopping center parking lot, that doesn't have private security guards. But the major political debate for the past several years has been about how to publicly finance a new larger basketball arena when they are unable to fill the older one that we already have. Oh, by the way, our mayor, Keven Johnson, a very likeable guy, is a former NBA star. And the local NBA team is owned by a couple of millionaire brothers who live and own a casino in Las Vegas. They regularly threaten to move their team to another city unless Sacramento can finance a new arena.
