Today we will see the Pittsburgh Steelers, named after the steelworkers, go up against the Green Bay Packers, named after the meatpackers, in the Super Bowl. In addition to honoring the working class with their names, both teams have reputations for being among the most liberal in the NFL, with the Steelers in the forefront of promoting minority advancement, as well as being relatively pro-union. And the Packers? As explained in the clip below, they are practically a Communist organization, the only non-profit, community-owned team in the NFL.
Is it a coincidence that these two teams are also among the most successful in the league on the field?
(Thanks to a couple of facebook friends for drawing my attention to this clip.)
