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.
