This Sunday, much of the world will be watching the Super Bowl. Sadly, the Green Bay Packers won’t be part of it. Even though the Green And Gold came just one win shy of earning a spot in Super Bowl LIV, there actually is a place where the Packers can be seen playing in “The Big Game.”
On February 2, Boone & Crockett will offer some localized counter-programming to this year’s match-up between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. At 5:30 p.m., the Harbor District bar will screen Super Bowl XLV, which featured the Packers taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers at the newly-opened Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. While we all remember the outcome, you might not recall the events that led to the 31-25 Packers victory.
As the rest of the planet is tuned into the game in Miami, Boone’s television will be showing the events of February 6, 2011 instead. There, you can witness Aaron Rodgers’ 304-yard, three touchdown performance that earned him the game’s MVP honors. You can see Jordy Nelson in his prime as he goes off for nine receptions and 140 yards. You can watch Greg Jennings score two touchdowns before he signed with the Vikings and became lame. You can marvel at just how damn good Nick Collins was and recall forgotten role players like Tom Crabtree, James Starks, Frank Zombo, and Jarrett Bush.
According to Boone & Crockett, there will be shots for every Packers touchdown. We’re predicting four! Also, this year’s Super Bowl will be shown as well…just in case you wanted to keep tabs on the 2020 game as you relive the glory of the 2010 season. And yes, “Cheesehead Cosplay” is encouraged.
