Wasn't sure were to put this (Let the jokes fly!).

But here is your chance to become a NFL owner. The Green Bay Packers are selling common stock shares of the team. http://packersowner.com/

I believe they've always been publically owned, traded on open market.

It's about like donating to the Razorback Foundation. 

I'm no Packers fan, but it's kind of a cool bit.  It'd be hard to imagine Jerry Jones passing the hat and getting much traction with it.

You must not be a Packer fan and/or have grown up in Wisconsin. As a shareholder, you do get to vote for budget issues, boardmembers, etc.; attend annual meeting and get to buy merchandise not available to general public. Bought a share yesterday for Xmas...It's sorta like giving to the Razorback Foundation.

But now Jerry Jones and I have even MORE in common.....

To beat Texas in a way that was pretty significant. You know to kneel on the two yard line three times in a row at the end of the game to me that is a very fulfilling moment. Um borderline erotic. I mean it's really really cool ~ Bret Bielema

I figured I am already an asshole like Jerry Jones so why not join the club officially?

Now that I am on board I think the first thing I want to put forward is the idea that we ought to keep this Rodgers kid.

Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode where Kramer bought stock in some company and attended a shareholder meeting?

It is a pretty cool deal.

Oddly, Green Bay is close to half the size of Little Rock.

And sucks complete ass when you have to travel to there for work in January. I actually traveled more north than Green Bay to Oconto. Sun goes down at 3pm and there's 7 ft of snow on the ground. I've never felt so lonely before and felt like I was at the edge of the world.

Even more reason to buy shares to vote against the popular plan(s).   :devil:
