Packer Nation: A Win for the Economy

One thing a Packer win did for Wisconsin was to insure a boost in the economy. One of my employers Dick's Sports has seen a significant increase in sales compared to last year at this time. Here is a pic from my shift at 1 pm on Monday. By 3 pm we were packing up the tables with shirts and hats completely sold out. No worries.... NFC Champion supplies are still available online and Superbowl apparel is quickly on its way! Now's a great time to be a Packer fan!

I suggested to a visiting Senator at our church last week to put an excise tax on Packer merchandise. Either it will boost the economy, or Packer fandom will take a blow.

I don't think he'll follow through with my idea, but it would be a win-win situation for me! :-)
