Lost Piece Found

It was hard not to hear the Counting Crows in my head on Sunday. “Mr. Jones and … fairy tales..” I rest my case. Two past posts called  for veteran leadership and just when the Green Bay Packers were in danger of leaning all their weight on youth, an ol’ vet shows up to save … Continue reading »

It’s Still Missing

I have learned not to panic. Not only am I getting too old for such nonsense but that’s the power of Ted Thompson. The “In Ted we Trust” mantra continues in Green Bay and how can it not? The team was in the NFC Championship game last year and basically had it won if not … Continue reading »

The Thing That’s Missing …

There seems to be something missing – still. As the Packers approach the upcoming season, we are each intriqued by what’s to come. It feels like it’s their year. It feels right that the first team to win the big game known as the Super Bowl would win the big game on it’s 50th anniversary. … Continue reading »

Formalities Aside

  Can we just stop it already? You’ll hear me say this many times over the course of the blog: My journalism professors always taught us to never start a piece of writing with a question. It’s cheap. It’s lazy. It’s an easy way in. Sure, okay, but sometimes it’s absolutely necessary. So my easy … Continue reading »

Forever September

Training Camp starts next week, this event used to signal the end of summer, but did we ever really have a summer to begin with? My wife said to me the other day: “I can’t wait for football!” (Can you tell we are a match?) I said: “You’re not kidding! I wish we could fast … Continue reading »

Quality Time with regard to kids is thrown around rather loosely these days. Each of us has our own definition of what quality time means. I recently read a great book by a writer I follow, Jon Acuff. His latest book is DO OVER. He specializes in kicking your career into gear and reaching your … Continue reading »

One Month Away…

  I know we are only about a month away from training camp, but don’t we get a bit too excited about things? It’s the same storyline each year: Rookie Camp opens and raves come through the inter-webs about who “looked good” and the pundits get all excited about how well those that “looked good” … Continue reading »

Even Champions Fail

Yes, of course even champions fail. Not even the most accomplished just had success from start to Finish, but trying to instill this concept into kids minds is a challenge to say the least. I want to explain to my son the best way I can, that sometimes tons of hard work might still end … Continue reading »

A First-Timer at OTA’s

There is a first time for even the most diehard of Packers fans. In my case, it was a first-ever visit to watch an OTA practice. As expected it was very basic. Nothing monumental occurs, but it appears to be a vital function to building a foundation for team chemistry. You can observe who walks-through … Continue reading »
