Green Bay Packers Celebration: Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson On Super Bowl XLV Win

The world’s fastest Super Bowl celebration continued, with the Green Bay Packers bringing Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson, and Mark Murphy on stage for some remarks. McCarthy, clad in a dark coat and newsboy hat, got the most mic time:

It’s great to be here. I just want to thank the fans. You’re clearly an energy force for our football team. Keep [something about bringing energy and passion] and we’ll keep bringing them trophies back to you … After we lost the Arizona game last year, in the exit interviews the players felt very strongly that we could win a championship. Unbelievable support from Packer Nation, and we’re gonna do it again next year.

General manager Thompson made a flub that few Packers fans likely minded all that much:

Thank you. Thank you. It’s a great day to be a Packer, isn’t it? This is a great group of guys. It took everybody on the team to win this thing. But the Lambeau — Lombardi Trophy is back in Green Bay. Thank you.

And owner Murphy is already on his coach’s behind about next year:

We’ve gotta start winning some more to catch up with Lombardi.

More to come from Lambeau Field.
