Tales From the Green Bay Packers Sideline
A Collection of the Greatest Packers Stories Ever ToldeBook - 2011
There are probably as many stories from the Green Bay Packers sideline as there are fans of one of the country's most storied sports franchises. That's what Tales from the Packers Sideline is all about. Since the earliest days of professional football, the Packers have been as much a part of the game as the ball itself--from Curly Lambeau to Johnny "Blood" McNally; from Bart Starr to Ray Nitschke; from the Ice Bowl to Vince Lombardi to Mike Holmgren and Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers. Some of the stories will feel as familiar and comfortable as tailgating at Lambeau Field on a gorgeous October morning. Others will be new to even the most avid Packers fan. But hopefully, all will bring back special memories and reveal a part of what makes the Green Bay Packers more than just a football team. This is a franchise that has grown up with the country, and everyone has a favorite Packers story. From odd pregame rituals to controversial coaching decisions to strange players to the details behind what made a great game a truly great game, the stories are there to be told--and Tales from the Packers Sideline does just that.
