Though the Packers may hail from Titletown, it's easy to forget that most of their players come from other parts of the country. Several matriculated from the State of Ohio, where one its largest cities, Cleveland, had endured a championship drought dating back to the 1960s.
That drought ended Sunday when the Cleveland Cavaliers upset the Golden State Warriors in an exhilarating Game 7. The excitement surrounding the game and its historical significance certainly came through on Twitter, where the Ohio-rooted members of the Packers shared their feelings.
Outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott, a Cleveland native currently rolling around with the Packers' annual Tailgate Tour, couldn't contain himself on Twitter:

Quinten Rollins, a native of Canton, elected to share the joy with fellow defensive backs Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Damarious Randall:
Finally, starting center Corey Linsley didn't compose his own tribute to Cleveland's first championship since 1964, but he did retweet this vine of Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith's daughter:
