So, yesterday the deal went down
At 1265 Lombardi Ave
A deal that has left many Packer fans
Shocked, saddened and even mad.
One of our true fan favorites
The Packers just released
And with a mere stroke of a pen.
Jordy Nelson’s days in green and gold just ceased.
The man we called “White Lightning”,
Whose play and commitment was superb
Was just given a pink slip
and unceremoniously kicked to the curb.
After all he did for the Packers
Made big plays and took big licks
I just didn’t matter in the end
87 was 86ed.
Let me say the pain felt by so many Packer fans,
Without sounding too glib.
Had to be about as awful
As Jordy felt when he played with broken ribs.
Jordy ranks second in Packers’ history in receiving TDs
third in total receptions
fifth in all time receiving yards
and Aaron’s number 1 touchdown connection.
And you never saw him talking trash
or giving opposing players some lip.
he was known for playing with class and character
And the height of sportsmanship.
He’s the kind of player who never bitched or whined
And never once did he showboat
And while he only was chosen All Pro once
He always got my vote.
We will miss you Jordy Nelson.
and wish you the best wherever you head
Unless it’s with the Bears or Vikes
In which case he might as well be dead.
