Lambeau Field and Packers fans give the greatest military tributes | For The Win
We look back at the salute that the fans gave at Lambeau on Sunday night. We at APC would also like to take a moment to thank all the veterans for your service.

Now on to the football portion of today's curds. This morning, we continue our look back at Sunday's big win and some of the key factors that contributed to it.

Well you say that now, Mac...let's see what happens over the next few wees.

What every Packer fan is thinking after Week 10 -
Okay, the overdone accent is a bit much (and no self-respecting Wisconsinite would pronounce "bratwurst" or "Fond Du Lac" that way), but it's worth a watch for the Chmura joke.

The Simpsons monorail song if it featured Marc Trestman
Fans of the iconic TV show will recognize one of its finest moments, and Packers fans can laugh at the slick sales pitch of the Bears' coach in Phil Hartman's voice.
