The year was 1981 and I was 11yrs old living in Two Rivers, Wis. My older brother Chuck and his girlfriend Carol were going to Green Bay for the Packer Fan Photo Day and I was thrilled that they were taking me too! 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 see him so my brother told me to crawl under all the Packer fans. So I did and ended up at James Lofton's feet. I asked him to pick me up so I could get a picture of us. Laughing he said "I don't know if I can"?!! Then he hoisted me up and yelled, "Who's kid is this"? Carol said, "He's mine" and snapped a picture!
It took 33 yrs later to meet James Lofton again, in 2014, when the Packer Tundra Tailgate bus stopped in Escanaba, Mich. I showed him the picture and asked him if he remembered it? He laughed and said "That was a long time ago"! I agreed and told him we were both a lot younger. I then asked him if he could pick me up again for a picture...and we both laughed!!!!!
