Smash away your Packers frustrations

Posted at 6:00 PM, Jan 25, 2021

MILWAUKEE — Lots of people around Wisconsin are frustrated about the Packers losing to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Whether it was the play-calling, the referees, or just the game in general, fans aren't happy.

Now that the season is over, it's important to decompress and de-stress. However, not everyone does so in the same way. That's why Digital Reporter James Groh came up with two completely opposite yet worthwhile ways to relax and feel our angry/frustrated/sad emotions about the Packers.

Rage Room MKE

Angry about the game? Take out that frustration by smashing stuff, literally. Rage Room MKE is a place in Butler that allows you to break things in a safe and efficient way. They have everything from glass cups to computers to home appliances.

"I mean I was watching the game all yesterday. I grew up in Green Bay. I’m right there with everybody. It sucks," Chief Smash Officer, Patrick Nienow, said.

They supply just about any type of hard object you could want to hit stuff with: iron rods, bats, golf clubs, and so much more.

You can even bring in your own items, like a Buccaneers' bobblehead... or a life-sized cutout of your least favorite 43-year-old QB.

If smashing stuff in a blind rage isn't your style, take a deep breath and find your inner peace with yoga.

"Well, yoga is a great way to distress because it helps the body and the mind," Susan Goulet, the owner of Milwaukee Yoga Center said.

They offer in-person and online yoga classes for everyone.

"And so this helps people to kind of regain their equilibrium," she said.

Don't worry, the Pack will be back

It was a tough game to watch. It's hard to see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers lose in the NFC Championship again, especially to 43-year-old Tom Brady.

However, don't worry. The Packers will still be the Packers next year, and if they can keep their same core of players, they have a good chance of making it to the NFC Championship again.
