I was pleasantly shocked by the reference to "December, 1963 (Oh What a Night!)."

I read the Times today, oh boy...

There's probably an opening for a "Night Chicago Died" reference, since we're reaching back a few decades. But we'll have to wait for an epic collapse in a prime time game.

Haven't there already been two to four of those this season?

I love how the article mentions the Packers having the top rated defense in the NFL, and clicking the hyperlink leads it to the NFL's site, which then shows that

1. The ranking is by yards allowed (ugh)
2. The Packers are actually the second-ranked defense, due to last night's Jets-Bills game being included in the stats.

I'm telling you, this whole Internet thing is just a fad.
