    I enjoy your articles on Bleacher Report. I wonder if you have family in Lena Wisconsin. My family used to work for Pete Carriveau in that town some 30 miles north of GB; this was back in the late 60s-early70s.Keep up the good work.

    Thanks, Roger. And you made a good guess. Pete was my grandfather. I actually worked as a teacher and coach for three years in Lena from 2003 to 2006.

  4. Roger Valadez says:

    It was people like Pete and others there that my family fell in love with the state and especially the Packers. From 1966 through 1972 I attended a Packer preseason home game and met some of the legends; courtesy of the Hartwig family who was from that area. To this day, my family follows the Pack each year and fondly remembers the summer evenings waiting to unload our cucumber load in the packing shed run by your grandfather. Thanks for responding, Brian; made my day.

    is jhonny jolly in football shape ???

    There’s no way to know until he gets to Green Bay, Allan. If Jolly agrees to a contract that will pay him near the NFL minimum, there’s no reason the Packers shouldn’t take a look at him. They’ll have the entire offseason program and training camp to figure out if he’s worth keeping come September. They can always cut him him then and be no worse off.
