Sunday, January 15, 2012 just wasn’t the Green Bay Packers day as the New York Giants defeated them 37-20 in the divisional round of the NFL football playoffs. The Packers had the home field advantage for the playoffs after going 15-1 in the regular a season.
I had a bad feeling the day of the game and even had a dream the night before the game that the Packers would lose. After seeing the high scoring games earlier in the season it was tough to see the Packers have such a tough time scoring and an even tougher time to see them cough up the ball as often as they did.
I was hoping to see the Packers make another trip to the Super Bowl and have a chance to be witness to all the excitement that bring to Green Bay, but it just wasn’t meant to be. I guess I better wax up the skis because I’m going to have some free weekends coming up.
Regardless, the Green Bay Packers had a great season and it sure was a fun season to be a sports photographer in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
