The Green Bay Packers lost Thursday night to the Seattle Seahawks 27-24, and that’s a win for America.

There are few things that bring me joy in life more than watching Aaron Rodgers walk off the field with a loss. Very few things indeed. It actually looked like the Packers quarterback was going to lead his team to a win. The simple prospect of that happening was more than enough of a reason for me to drink my sorrows away.

However, the universe always has a way of correcting itself. It turns out that Russell Wilson’s character under center for the Seahawks is pretty damn good himself. Now, he might not feel the need to be the center of attention like Rodgers does at all times, but he still manages to throw a pretty good ball. (RELATED: Here Are The Highlights Of Week 10 In The NFL)

Even take a look at Wilson after the game. Just humble, all about his team and not making himself the star of the show. That’s what being a Wisconsin-produced player is all about.

Now, I’m sure many of you are going to try and claim I’m biased against Rodgers because I’m a Lions fan. Save it. I call balls and strikes. The man can play football. There’s no doubt, but he’s also annoying as hell, a sore loser and a guy that we shouldn’t promote as the face of the NFL. We have to crush the spirits of the Packers and unfortunately their fans, who are overwhelmingly good people. Trust me, I grew up there.

It’s not personal for me. I just hate the Packers and I want them to never win another game. Does that make this a personal vendetta? I don’t think so.
