(Campaign for America's Future) -- The Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys Sunday. As a dear friend of mine remarked in an email: “It’s always nice when a collectively-owned team beats one owned by a greedy mega-capitalist, who’s beloved by Chris Christie.”
So in that spirit, and given my excitement as both a fan and a team owner, not to mention the tough times ahead for progressives, I thought it worth recalling a couple of blasts from the past that I composed to celebrate the team and the town that has secured it.
The first – “Take on the Happy Pack” – I co-authored with Cornel University Government Professor Isaac Kramnick for the Washington Post’s 1997 Super Bowl Sunday edition and the latter – “The Green Bay Packers: Of the People, By the People, For the People” – I wrote for the Roosevelt Institute’s New Deal 2.0 following Green Bay’s 2011 Super Bowl victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
