The entire state's prepping itself for the NFC Championship battle against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – and what better way to get pumped for the Battle of the Bays than with a Packers-themed sea shanty?
Yes, because nothing makes sense on the internet, sea shanties became one of the new hot trends on TikTok. And obviously, the only way to make these harmony-dense, old-timey tunes even better was to add the Green Bay Packers – and thankfully Packer backer Joseph Salvo thought the same thing last week, adapting the 19th century ditty and 21st century hit "Soon May the Wellerman Come" into an TikTok ode to the green and gold. After some early success, the Packers official account picked up the unexpected anthem and added some appropriate Green Bay-themed graphics.
Have a listen, have a pint and sing along ye cheesehead mateys:
Between this seaworthy song and Lil Wayne's newly remixed "Green and Yellow" hype track, the Packers definitely have the most eclectic playlist of any playoff team ... probably ever.
Hopefully it's a sign that the Packers will sink the Bucs to Davy Jones' Locker and sail their way to the Super Bowl on Sunday. Oh, and in case these songs and Robert Tonyan's recent op-ed haven't got you pumped up enough yet, here's a quick Instagram clip from former football player and analyst Brandon Flowers previewing Sunday's matchup in all of its thrilling glory. I'm starting to think this game tomorrow is gonna be a big deal!
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
