It’s Been Awhile
I can’t remember my last Packers-related post, so this one’s for all the die-hard Green and Gold fans out there.
There hasn’t been much in terms of news for the Packers lately (which is a good thing), but the team’s official website has offered up some info on this year’s rookie class. Packers.com is doing a weekly profile of the rookies titled, “Getting to Know a Draft Pick.” These stories detail everything you could ever want to know and more about the newest Packers.
Two weeks ago it was 7th-round draft pick, C.J. Wilson. Last week it was 6th-rounder, James Starks. Today it is 5th-round selection, Marshall Newhouse. I’m sensing a pattern in the order these guys are introduced…
The interviews are a pretty good read, and the content covers areas where a sports reporter typically doesn’t go. For example, do you know that when James Starks is not perusing his playbook, he likes to draw comic books? Or Marshall Newhouse’s childhood idol was Mark Stepnoski? And who would have guessed that C.J. Wilson has been playing the piano since he was 3 or 4 years old.
