Why I love the Packers: Born in Idaho following from afar

By Colleen Brenton. CREATED Dec 24, 2014

"Why am I a Green Bay Packers fan? I'm not sure I ever had a chance of being anything else. Through ups and downs, they've been a constant in my life.

I've been a Packer fan since birth. I was born in Idaho, right before the first Super Bowl. My dad was a huge Jerry Kramer fan, since. all of his siblings attended the University of Idaho, like Kramer. In those days to have someone with that high a profile from our state was very unusual, and a point of pride."

Jethro Pough Passes

Former Elizabeth City State star and two-time Super Bowl champion Jethro Pough has reportedly passed away. The former Dallas Cowboys defensive end was 70 years-old.
 

The Windsor, NC native was a two-time All-CIAA selection at ECSU before embarking on a 13-year NFL career that saw him help establish the Dallas Cowboys as "America's Team." Despite never being selected to the Pro Bowl, the 1968 All-Pro is unofficially credited with 95.5 sacks during his career.

Green Bay Packers: Jerry Kramer Talks About the 'Ice Bowl'

Story by Bob Fox

 "When the Dallas Cowboys play the Green Bay Packers this Sunday in an NFC Divisional Playoff Game at Lambeau Field, there will be one very interested observer in attendance.

That observer will be former Packers great Jerry Kramer. Talk about a very apropos occasion.

Kramer knows all about playing the Cowboys in the postseason, as he played against them in two NFL Championship Games: in 1966 in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl and in 1967 at Lambeau. The Packers won both of those contests..."

Looking back at unforgettable Ice Bowl

Story by Bob Berghaus

"The Packers jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but the Cowboys battled back and took a 17-14 advantage on a 50-yard halfback option pass from Dan Reeves to Lance Rentzel on the first play of the fourth quarter.

That led to the dramatic conclusion in which Packers quarterback Bart Starr guided his team on a 68-yard touchdown drive that gave the Packers their third straight NFL title. One of the heroes for the Packers was Chuck Mercein, a fullback who had been cut at midseason by the New York Giants. He accounted for 34 yards on the drive, including 19 on a pass from Starr that moved the ball to the Dallas 11. He then ran for 8 yards to the 3, four plays before the winning score..."
