Day 55 - The Greatest Rivalry in Football (and Julie & Julia)

Day 55.

Anyone who reads this blog semi-regularly knows that I am a big fan of professional football, especially THE GREEN BAY PACKERS, a.k.a. the greatest football team of all time. Today, the Pack faces the very scum of the Earth Chicago Bears in the NFC championship game, which will decide which team goes will go on to the Super Bowl in two weeks. Oh, yeah and the Bears-Packers rivalry is the oldest and one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL. In other words, I fucking HATE the bears.

Jesus has been 14-4 in his Packer game picks so far this season.

And today at 3:00 pm ET, the Packers and the Bears will probably play the most important game in the history of this 181-game rivalry. Thankfully, I got my daily viewing of Julie & Julia out of the way this morning--can't have that looming over me while I try to enjoy what promises to be an instant classic.

That being said, I had to search for parallels between this game and Julie & Julia like I did with the Jets-Pats game way back when. After all, this is me we're talking about. 

Aaron Rodgers/Paul Child: Now I know what you're thinking--A-Rod is clearly more of a Julia-Meryl Streep type. After all, he's incredibly talented, hard-working and has thrown an incredible 10 touchdown passes in 3 postseason appearances. But hear me out on this. Without Paul Child's constant presence and support, Julia Child would be nothing. She's said it herself. And without Aaron Rodgers, the Packers would not be the fucking juggernaut they have been in the last couple of weeks. Greg Jennings may sometimes have to put this team on his fucking back, but Rodger's is its core, its fearless leader, its bread to everyone's butter. 

Jay Cutler/Not Mark Ruffalo: I know, I know. Cutler seems to be channeling Julie Powell most of the time. You know, because they are both HUGE FUCKING BITCHES. But I honestly think Not Mark Ruffalo represents Cutler the best. Not only is Not Mark Ruffalo also a sort of a bitch (whipped by JP, anyone?), but his inability to measure up to what people expect of him (to be Mark Ruffalo) makes him one of the most detestable people ever. Expectations for Cutler were high when he first went to Chicago last year, but then he fucking sucked. He's been marginally better this season, but the Bears' playoff run has been mostly due to their defense, which I have to admit, is really, really good. I just hope I can rely on Cutler to throw more picks in the redzone.

Clay Matthews/The semi-truck: I don't actually know if there is a semi-truck in Julie & Julia (even though I've seen it 55 times now), but if there is, then Clay Matthews is that semi-truck. Why? CUZ HE FUCKING RUNS PEOPLE OVER!!!

Clay Matthews, the most terrifying man alive, takes Jay Cutler from behind.

That's all the football parallels I can think of right now, but I'm sure I'll come up with more when the Pack heads to the SUPER BOWL in two weeks. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go defend this team to a room full of bears fans (the worst people on Earth). God, I hate going to school in Chicago.




Julie & Julia
Quote of the Day: "Oh, god, you memorized it? How pathetic"


  1. Hey Congrats!! GO PACKS

  2. prime idea: host a tinychat while you watch julie and julia one night (or weekly? monthly?).. maybe not video, as you seem to be concerned with your picsz all up on da web. p.s. cairolinn i know you're reading this

  3. Cairolinn here. I think I understand what Luther is getting at. Maybe (building off of that) you could record a commentary throughout the movie so we could listen to that and simultaneously watch the movie ourselves. That way you won't have people creepin' on your dorm/face but we still get to hear your witty remarks......


    Puppies in packer jerseys take on teddy bears. Epic.

  5. Steelers! I read somewhere that Julia Child was a Pittsburgh fan. Just sayin...

  6. I love going to school in Chicago right now just because I got to witness the glory of the Packers defeating the Bears IN Chicago to go to the Super Bowl... doesn't get much better than that.

    Oh, and the blog is great too, I die laughing about it every day. The "Not Mark Ruffalo" references get me every time.


  8. Yeah!!! Go Pack Go!!! <3 Clay Matthews. super badass. And how bout Raji!? What an awesome game!!! Next, we dominate Pittsburgh.

  9. Dominate Pittsburgh? Please, A-Rod/Paul Child has a concussion. There goes your team.

  10. This essay is very attractive and useful. Your this work defiantly helps other.

  11. Every last professional tennis game season unofficially begins when using the Australian Receptive. There happen to be always a handful of smaller tourneys in premature January to kick off a couple of years, but only if the competitors take your places within the first Outstanding Slam within the year should the stage really warm up.

  12. If you get injured, you will need to report it to the insurance service provider and give information about the loss. You can go for injury claims if you are injured by an auto accident or any other method. Usually, the injured person would be asked to submit medical reports to the insurance service provider. The claims are settled as a single lump sum. Life Insurance Terms

  16. أفضل رهان؟ استخدم منزلقات العفش المصممة خصيصًا للأرضيات المغطاة بالسجاد. ارفع كل زاوية أو ساق من قطعة العفش ، ضع منزلقًا أدناه (يلزم أن تكون الحافة الملساء لشريط التمرير توميء صوب الأرض) وادفع الكائن الثقيل في الوجهة المطلوب من القسم السفلي عوضاً عن الجزء العلوي. تيقن من وجود صديق يساعدك في القيام بهذا لمنع انقلاب قطعة العفش خلال الحركة.
