Now I know who should win the SuperBowl

Today a friend asked me who I thought would win the SuperBowl.  I asked who is giving a big bowl as a prize.

Last week another friend asked me who I thought would win, the packers or the bears.  I replied that the meatpackers always win over the bears.

Today I found out a reason to cheer for the Green Bay Packers.  They are the only team owned by the "people" and not by a few billionaires.  There are over 120,000 shareholders of the Packers, and no shareholder may own more than 200,000 shares.  Assuming most of those shareholders live in the Green Bay area, they probably won't move the team to get a better deal.
