Day 68 - Why Julie & Julia Wants the Packers to Win the Super Bowl

Day 68.

If you read this blog on a relatively frequent basis, it will come as no surprise to you that I am a die-hard GREEN BAY PACKERS fan. And if you know anything about football (or if you know anything about anything), the Packers are playing in a little thing called the Super Bowl tomorrow. It's kind of a big fucking deal.

Holy shit--this is happening.
I've already posted about how Julie Powell is the Mike Vick of the NFL, noted the Packers' absolute dismantling of the Atlanta Falcons and riffed on the greatest rivalry in football a.k.a. Bears-Packers, so now there is really only one thing left to do--tell you why the film Julie & Julia wants the Packers to win the Super Bowl. 

Reason #1: Ben Roethelisberger is a fucking (alleged) rapist. And while Julie & Julia's political views aren't always clear to me, I'm pretty sure that they are staunchly anti-rape.

What a goddamn rapist-douche. Can't let him win another Super Bowl.

Reason #2: B.J. Raji clearly loves food as much as Julie and Julia. They don't call him "The Freezer" for nothing.

This is not meant as a fat joke. B.J. Raji is my idol.
Reason #3: Lil Wayne is a fan. Also, he remixed this awesome song.

Reason #4: Aaron Rodgers is sexier than Not Mark Ruffalo could ever hope to be.

Not sexy (also, Not Mark Ruffalo).

Reason #5: Julie & Julia is pretty much all Green & Gold. Also, it has multiple references to cheese.

Green asparagus, gold cheese.
Green tree/construction equipment, gold cabs.
Green dress, gold cup, Jane Lynch eating cheese.
Green & gold forms, plus Julie looks like she's wearing a stylized field goal pin.
Green & gold subway station.
Green form, gold folder, black best friend.
Of course Julie Powell is a CHEESEHEAD. Not sure if that's good for us Packer fans.
Green dress, gold flowers, shocked expression in reaction to seeing Big Ben the Rapist.

Green door, gold envelope, look of hope that the

So, in other words...


I don't think I'll be able to write a sane blog post tomorrow due to the circumstances (don't worry, I'll still watch the movie), so that being said, I have pre-planned two versions of tomorrow's post--one for if we emerge victoriously or the other, if we have to wallow in our defeat,  I will adjust the content of tomorrow's post accordingly.

Let's just hope that for all of our sakes, the Packers win Super Bowl XLV.

Quote of the Day: "It's almost not worth having one."


  1. Go Pack!

    Did you see that story about one of those old farts who has never missed a Super Bowl missing this one? He's the one from Wisconsin. Very sad.

  2. In case you ever want to talk about costumes...

  3. Didn't really know how to alert you to this.

  4. Green ARTICHOKE, gold cheese.....

  5. Green Artichoke, gold hollandaise sauce...


  7. All kinds of awesome! The Pack was giving me a tiny heart attack after the half, like they took a snooze in the locker room or something. Way to hang in there.

  8. The Guardian wrote about you?!
    Very well done!

  9. Yes yes, Not Green Asparagus. That's an artichoke, dahling.

    On a side note, my high school colours were green and gold :)

  10. I've been reading this all day because I was super down this morning and I hate Julie Powell. Thanks a lot for the lift; it is working for me, but I had to post a comment to agree with Darlene. How is it that you somehow think that's asparagus and cheese? I know, I know; you're not a cook at all... but I bet you eat food on occasion. And I bet you've seen this particular scene just under seventy times.
