Donald Driver tweets “Packer for life”

May 29, 2012

Not sure yet what this means – but it is sounding like Driver may have signed some kind of contract to keep Driver a Packer for life. We’ll see what this really means as we learn more.

Check out this Old Man Injury article. Funny.

I particularly like this line “most of whom had played often in their teens and early 20s and not a single time since…”



Terrifying baseball game

Click here. Wow. The most amazing thing about this video is how incredibly calm people are with swarms of bees flying around everywhere. As a person with an allergy to bees I find this positively terrifying!

Daughter consoles dad after tough loss

Check this out. Funny – cute.

Reminds me of the other day when I was golfing with son Ben at a local par-3 course. For some reason I allowed myself to get a bit too into the moment as I stood over a short, 6 foot birdie putt. The putt was headed right for the hole until it hit a random patch of dirt, leading to a lip-out. I said “Man” with more volume behind it than the situation deserved. Son Ben looked up at me and said “but that was a nice try daddy”. I quickly snapped out of my ridiculous focus on score, joining Ben and his excitement over a giant puddle on the next hole.

Wow, this is shocking and really sad. Read here – this is  apparently a confirmed report, though there appears to be some uncertainty surrounding all this just yet.


Hargrove suspended 8 games

May 2, 2012

Not good news here for the Packers. He’ll still be able to play the second half of the season, but the severity of his suspension seems to be somewhat of a surprise. Though as the article points out, TT and company were well aware of this possibility as they structured the contract in such a way that this suspension won’t hurt the team really at all financially – but it will hurt having a potentially quality player miss half the season. My guess is that someone else (probably Worthy) steps up and makes such an impression that Hargrove will be mostly forgotten by the time he steps on the field in Game 9.
