Hank Aaron often told the story about how he ended up in Milwaukee: while playing for the Indianapolis Clowns, the Braves (then in Boston) and NY Giants sent him contracts via telegram. The Braves’ offer was for $50 more and that sealed the deal.
Some good historical stuff here on Hank Aaron’s early career with the Milwaukee Braves.
Another great one gone. Henry Aaron was a wonderful human being & the greatest power hitter of all time, & somehow the most undervalued. He & Clemente my idols. Loved him since I was a boy of 8 in Madison in 1957 when he led the Braves to the championship against the Yanks.
Here's my column on the story behind the story of Aaron Rodgers' green room experience at the 2005 draft. It was a train wreck that could have been avoided (I tried).
(The column also includes a personal update on my health)
Can confirm USA Today report that UCF's Danny White will be the next AD at Tennessee. They made him an offer he couldn't refuse. He's expected to start searching for a coach immediately. His hires of Scott Frost, Josh Heupel, Lance Leipold, Nate Oats and Bobby Hurley stood out.
Coach Matt LaFleur said veteran CB Tramon Williams is in the building and likely will start his third stint with #Packers on practice squad (assuming he passes protocols). What a great late-season insurance policy to have a consummate pro like @HighRizer22 back in the fold.
RIP, Ted Thompson. He wasn’t very forthcoming with information, but he was always a gentleman and a good guy to talk to away from microphones and cameras. He built one Super Bowl champion and had a big hand in building what might be another one in a few weeks. #Packers
I’ll never forget lining up for a play and Phil pointing to one of our linebackers and telling him he was lined up wrong based off the blitz we were about to run and being 100% correct about it haha.
One of the smartest I’ve ever played against and a hell of a competitor.
Love this story.
Received some very distressing news. Longtime Sentinel/Journal Sentinel sports writer/columnist Bud Lea passed away this morning. A legendary sports journalist in these parts and an absolute expert on the Packers. He remained a good friend to me. RIP, Bud. Will have story coming.
RIP, Bud Lea. Even though we worked for rival newspapers, he was always a friend and mentor to me. Our chats had become less frequent in recent years due to his health issues, but I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. You’ll be missed, Bud.
Fueled by homefield — and home-fan — advantage, Packers beat Rams to advance to NFC Championship game via @WiStateJournal
