Larry McCarren's 'Ode to the tie'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Nov 25, 2013

620WTMJ/NBC26's Larry McCarren, the host of Packers Live, has gone poetic again.

He decided to write some rhyme with reason, re-evoking the emotions of the aftermath of the Packers' 26-all tie with the Minnesota Vikings.

"They say a tie is like kissing your sister; against the Vikings, like picking a blister.

The comeback was great.  The overtime lacking.  Toby Gerhart?  Come on.  Where was the tackling?

But if you examine the actual cost?  The Lions and Bears, they both lost.

The Packers still control their own playoff fate, after a month without a win.  That's on the good side of great.
