James Lofton and Andy Reinhart, 1981


The year was 1981 and I was 11yrs old living in Two Rivers, Wis.

We saw Bart Starr, Mike "Mad Dog" Douglas and Rich Campbell. James Lofton was there too with a big crowd around him. I could hardly…

It’s Just a Game But It’s More Than a Game

Green Bay Packer fans are still reeling from a heart wrenchingly disappointing NFC Championship loss. Some fans will probably need the buzz of the SuperBowl to subside before they can think of something else. Some probably woke up Monday morning after the loss and moved on easily.

He shared the story many times with excitement.

White Cadillac

I worked with a man named Karl many years ago. He owned a 1958 2dr white Cadillac. Karl had season tickets back in the day. He would load up his buddies and cruise to home games in Green Bay or Milwaukee. Later, when Karl passed away, I helped to clean out his locker at work. One of the throw away items was a 1964 Adler Brau cardboard score card.…
