Facebook ’11 review: Packers’ Super Bowl XLV triumph ranks 2nd worldwide

Posted by Duke Bobber on December 7, 2011 – 9:36 am

The Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers has been revealed as the second most popular global topic on Facebook in 2011.

From Facebook’s blog: “Each year, millions of people post on Facebook to share what’s important to them, discuss world events, or just catch up with friends. With more than 800 million people connected around the globe on Facebook, news about the world’s triumphs and tragedies spreads fast. The year’s biggest sports event came in February, when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers to win Super Bowl XLV. Not surprisingly, Packers fans were particularly active around each post-season match (represented by the spikes on the chart), culminating in their victory on February 6.”

    It’s hard for me to believe the Japan earthquake/Tsunami didn’t make the top 10.

    Yes, Packers are the best and will return to another super bowl 2012.

    My bsloved Packers are getting ready to face a horrible truth. They will disapper early in the playoffs with the 2nd worst defense in the NFL. they are winning because Aron Rogers is amazing and his receivers are close behind. Starks and Grant cannot and should not try to make a move on the line of scrimmage. Starks only does well when he power runs straight ahead. Grant will be a former pro football player after this season. The offensive line is average. The kickers are great and they are the best tacklers on special teams. I have pet turtles that can play better defense than the Packers. I wish I was not saying this but it is reality. Look at the stats of every quarterback that has played againest the Packers. They have had one of their best games of the seasons. I want to see the Packers go undefeated and make it to the Superbowl. With a laughable defense, poor running game due to non intelligent runners and a avgerage offensive line it will not happen. Aron Rogers you have carried a team to 12-0. You are great.

    Thanks Keith for the insight. But I think you’re wrong. As any Packer fan knows, the D sucks bad. It’s really no big secret. But it could be worse. How many Int has the D had? How many of those have been returned for TD’s? Without some of those Int’s games that we won close coulda went in the other teams favor. So there’s a faint silver lining. We’ll get back to the Superbowl, and we’ll win. Stay positive!! 12-0 and GO PACK GO!!

    Just keep scoring more points than the opponent. I love defense, but times have changed. Go Pack Go..

    Real Cheeseheads are the best people. I did not check my spelling befor posting this. Feel free to have at it. I hope I am wrong. Some really good teams are really studying how to slow down our offense and further confuse our defense. I keep hoping Mike and Dom have this whole thing planned out as a hoax. Everytime the Packers comeout to a playoff game they do just a little better on defense. Anyways I am proud to hail from Tomah, Wisconsin and good rebuttals are always welcome. Go Packers!

    don’t worry keith u r way wrong the pack r going 2 go 19-0 GO PACK GO Woodson and Rodgers will lead us to another super bowl

    I agree BIG CHEESE. Just keep runnin up the score and don’t look back. The cliche “defense wins championships” don’t really apply to the Pack. It helps, but with Rodgers and the unbelievable weapons at his desposal, whose to say the offense won’t win the whole thing. Hell, they got us this far. 12-0 and GO PACK GO!!

    WARNING: IF ATTENDING THE GAME ON SUNDAY, AVOID EYE CONTACT WITH ANY PERSON(S) WEARING SILVER & BLACK. DOING SO MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH! ATTEND AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    The note about not making “eye contact” with any “silver and black” persons should have been sent to the Packers not we couch potatoes. Apparently much eye (and full body) contact WAS made by those in Green and Gold and the “injury” sustained was to Raider pride and the “Death” was to their season….at least so far.

    Is a bad seat at The Super Bowl better the a good seat on the sofa in front of the TV?
