The Packers Skipped Practice Today And Went Bowling Instead

The Packers were scheduled to have an OTAs' practice today. 

They did not, though. 

Instead, Mike McCarthy's team did something else: they went bowling. 

">June 7, 2016

From the Packers:

To announce the change of plans, the coaching staff rolled a clip from the Coen Brothers’ cult-classic, “The Big Lebowski,” during their usual morning meeting.

The team quickly picked up on what it meant.

“It was a very happy team meeting this morning,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. “As soon as they saw ‘The Big Lebowski’ come on the screen, the veterans knew what was happening. A lot of fun.”

Tuesday’s news was met by a roar of applause. Once things settled down, the team boarded buses headed to the Gutter bowling alley in nearby Suamico where players and coaches were split into random groups of five.

Green Bay is in OTAs through June 9 and begin mandatory minicamp on June 14.
