Departures of Driver, Woodson, Jennings Remind Green Bay Packers Fans That Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
It’s that time of year when you realize there are major differences in the way fans feel about “their” teams and the way it is viewed by those that play for and manage those teams. Pro football, as they say, is a business. And that sucks.
Last weekend, former Oriole manager Earl Weaver and former St. Louis Cardinal great Stan Musial both passed away, and memories of the two washed over those that had followed the careers of the pair of icons. I had seen Weaver manage and had met Musial and both events left an impression on me.
Aaron Rodgers will not repeat as the National Football League’s Most Valuable Player, but he probably should.
While I am quick to sing his praises these days, I must admit that Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy often had me shaking my head during his first few seasons as the head of the Pack. But I have had few, if any, doubts about his coaching decisions since winning the Super Bowl. Until now.
What is on the Christmas list of some notable sports figures this year? Mike lets you know.
