Green Bay Packers Release Summer Schedule, Admirably Pretend Lockout Is Not A Thing

In anticipation of the NFL lockout coming to a swift conclusion with the negotiation of a new collective bargaining agreement...or perhaps just because they like planning...the Green Bay Packers have announced dates of four summer events that will tentitively take place between July 28 and August 6. Three of those events are not contingent on a CBA being approved (or the lockout ending through some other unlikely means), while one, the final event, can only happen if the lockout is over.

Per the Green Bay Packers website, the Green Bay Packers Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be held Thursday, July 28, inside Lambeau Field, starting at 11 a.m. It's being held rain or shine, so get that poncho out of your attic!

The Jerry Parins Cruise for Cancer takes place on Friday, July 29th, while the Packers 5k Run at Lambeau Field takes place on Saturday, July 30. All well and good, right? Then there's the big event - the reason I bothered to write this post up.

Pending the end of the NFL lockout, the annual Green Bay Packers Family Night will take place on Saturday, August 6. If you are unfamiliar with Family Night, it's when the Packers put on a scrimmage at Lambeau Field during training camp. Obviously, this event cannot take place if training camp has not started, which can't happen unless the lockout has ended.

So, get to it, owners and players! Conventional wisdom is that fans won't be truly mad until games are cancelled, but the owners and NFLPA (is that even a thing now?) don't want to endure my wrath if Family Night gets cancelled.
