Packers loss devastating? Gurung column puts game in perspective
Prof. Regan Gurung put the Jan. 18 Packers playoff loss in perspective last week, writing a “Today’s Take” column that appeared in Thursday’s (Jan. 22) Green Bay Press-Gazette. In it, Gurung takes issue with using the word “devastating” — as so many have — to describe the outcome of the NFC Championship game. “Let’s put things in perspective,” Gurung writes. “Devastating is all relative. There are a number of significant issues facing our community that are truly devastating, and I hope that we can give our Green Bay issues as much attention as we do our Green Bay Packers. And there are a lot of issues.” Gurung goes on to talk about a host of challenges, including poverty, alcohol abuse and mental and physical health. Check out his column.
