Once again, the Packers community has shown how it rallies around one of its own in need.

Levi Biestle is a 3 1/2 yr old young boy who was involved in a tragic lawn tractor accident. He has had 11 surgeries and three toes and part of a foot amputated. More surgeries will be needed, as will be money to help pay for these medical expenses.  (To read about this in more detail, visit levischallenge.com)

This past Saturday, Packers players Don Barclay, Jerron McMillian and a host of volunteers and local businesses got together to donate their time, money, services and raffle items in a concerted effort to raise money for this young Wisconsinite.

The Newburgh Fire department hosted the event, spearheaded by Wayne Sargent and Steve Tate of the “Ultimate Packer Fan Connection.” There were raffles, auctions, food and beverage sales with all proceeds going to the cause.

LS Limo of Appleton provided free transportation for the players. Mayfield Sports Marketing donated items for the raffles and auctions. Too many others to mention were volunteers that helped run the day-long event.

News of the event was spread via social media by the players, fans and members of the Packers Talk Radio Network and Mayfield Sports Marketing.

But of course, the biggest draw were the appearances by Packers’ players Don Barclay and Jerron McMillian, who both cleared time in their schedules to be there to support the fund raising event.

The players signed items that were then auctioned or raffled off. All event attendees received free autographs from the players, but were encouraged to make a donation if they were able to.

In all, it was a huge success; the day’s events raised close to $30,000 to help Levi and his family with the medical expenses they face.

Many thanks go to all involved, but it was the appearance of the Packers’ players that brought in the masses. The players appeared courtesy of Mayfield Sports Marketing, who has been successfully booking player appearances for fund-raisers and other events throughout Wisconsin.

Just help us spread the word and help this family out.

Details:

On September 3rd Levi was involved in a lawn mower accident at home in Town of West Bend, he was attend to by the Allenton Fire Department who subsequently sent him by Flight for Life to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. There his three small toes and a segment of the side of his right foot were amputated due to the significant amount of damage and the great concern for infection that could lead to further amputation. Five days later his great grandmother and aunt were killed in a head on collision on highway 16 near Oconomowoc Wi. Levi spent 30 days in Children’s Hospital with 11 surgeries to clean the wound sites and 1 surgery to transfer muscle from his back, skin grafts from his thigh and closure to the top of his foot.

On October 3rd he was discharged from Children’s Hospital still on IV antibiotics just in time to attend his mother and fathers wedding held on October 5. His mother, father, grandmother and grandfather were trained to attend to the IV infusions, wound dressing and pain drug administration, of which he remains on for an additional 3 weeks to date.  Subsequent known surgeries will include 3 pin removal from his foot and tendon relocation from the left side of his foot to the right side to allow straightening of the foot due to the loss of those lost in the accident, it is still unknown how much rehabilitation, prosthetics or assisting devices will be required to try to return him to his new normal state of mobility.

Meet Gilbert Brown at Throwback Weekend III!

Gilbert Brown Autographed Items PACKERS MEMORABILIA
Are you going to be in Green Bay for the game this weekend? Want to participate in what is becoming one of the largest and most prominent annual gatherings of Packers Fans?

If so, then make sure you check out Throwback Weekend III this weekend at the Green Bay Distillery.   To give you a little bit of a background, according to their website Throwback Weekend all started as one fan, Colleen Brenton of Pocket Doppler, planning to attend a game in Green Bay during the 2011 season.   What followed was incredible. More and more people were selecting the same game as their “Lambeau visit” for the year and Throwback Weekend was born.

A simple, small gathering blew up into a two-day event.  A tweet-up on Saturday followed by a tailgate on Sunday before the game were organized by Kyle Cousineau and a legend was born.  The name “Throwback Weekend” was coined by CheesheadTV’s Brian Carriveau who linked together the gathering along with the throwback uniforms the Packers wore against the Rams during the game.

Last year, Throwback Weekend II was moved to the Green Bay Distillery for both days to accommodate the larger crowds and that is where this year’s event will be held as well.

Sound like fun? It definitely is, and I speak as an attendee of (soon to be) all three Throwback Weekends.

If you’re not convinced, “The Grave Digger” and Super Bowl XXXI champion Gilbert Brown will be in attendance at the “tweet-up” Saturday night courtesy of Mayfield Sports Marketing where autographed items will be available for purchase. There will also be signed items from Leroy Butler, Eddie Lacy, Nick Perry, Jerron McMillian and more!

Don’t let the name “tweet-up” fool you.  You’re still invited even if you avoid Twitter with a ten-foot pole.  It’s a party to celebrate what brings all of us together regardless of age, race, gender or political views: the Green Bay Packers.

As I said, I’ll be there too.  Feel free to introduce yourself and if you have any “feedback” on ALLGBP.com, feel free to take it out on me.  Jersey Al is sending me a representative/scapegoat/whipping boy.

See you in Green Bay this weekend!

NOTE: There will be an opportunity for Throwback Weekend attendees to win an Eddie Lacy autographed helmet. One winner chosen at random – Good Luck!

Packers running back Eddie Lacy enjoyed his first career 100-yard rushing day against the Baltimore Ravens.

Surviving Sunday: News, Notes and Analysis from Packers Training Camp

Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football

Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football

Another week of Packers training camp is in the books. Is it Sept. 8 yet?

Finley pipes down
I’ve never been one of those people who gets all bent out of shape whenever Jermichael Finley says something that stirs the pot — I’ll take honesty and candor over canned cliches any day. But it looks like Finley is at least trying the cliche route…for now. Will a boring Finley in front of the microphones lead to a more exciting Finley on the football field? I don’t think one has anything to do with the other. If Finley becomes a force at tight end, it won’t be because he zipped his lips during training camp. Besides, if he does finally break out, people would probably be more tolerant of whatever does come out of his mouth.

Hawk OK with pay cut
Calling it “more of an ego thing than anything that guys can’t get over,” LB A.J. Hawk spoke about taking a pay cut this offseason in order to stay with the Packers. After the slash in pay, Hawk is due to make $10.6 million over the final three years of his deal. That sounds like more than enough money for a guy who rarely makes impactful plays. It’s good to hear Hawk speak openly about taking a cut and being a team guy, but deep down, even he has to know that there probably wasn’t another team out there that would be willing to pay him over $10 million. It’s still a great deal for Hawk, and the Packers obviously think it’s a fair price for a LB that hasn’t made many flash plays, but is healthy and ready to go every Sunday.

Bakhtiari making a move
We’ve been hearing nothing but good things about David Bakhtiari. There are even rumblings that he might end up winning the starting right tackle job. The rookie from Colorado appears to be plenty athletic to be the kind of pass protector the Packers like. And with Marshall Newhouse being, well, Marshall Newhouse, and Don Barclay horsing around at backup center, perhaps the window is open for the rookie to win the job. But remember: We haven’t made it to the first exhibition game yet. All rookies are getting loved up right now because they’re new, they’re fresh, their ceilings are perceived to be high and we don’t know their shortcomings yet.

Family Night First Impressions: Mama Mia Mason Crosby

Green Bay Packers Family Night Scrimmage 2013

Green Bay Packers Family Night Scrimmage 2013

Mason Crosby sure knows how to leave a bad taste in your mouth, doesn’t he? After a fun Family Night Scrimmage for both the fans and players, one that should have left everyone feeling good, instead, there are worries.

Overall on the night, Crosby missed five of eight field goal attempts. Two of his makes weren’t by much, either. Oy vay…

Giorgio Tavecchio made six of seven attempts. I wouldn’t exactly say he was impressive, but tonight he was better and he did make a 51 yard attempt. It’s good to know he’s capable of that distance, anyway.

Eddie Lacy looked like the real deal – he can make yardage when there’s little there to be made. And when he gets in the clear – he’s faster than you’d expect.

Johnathan Franklin seems to prefer (or need) open space to operate in. Looked best catching the ball out of the backfield. Did not show much running between the tackles.

The team’s best kickoff kicker could very well be Tim Masthay. This would help Tavecchio immensely if the Packers would seriously consider keeping him but concerned about kickoffs.

AJ Hawk – who is that skinny guy? Hawk has obviously slimmed down (or did some serious fat to lean muscle conversion) and appeared much more mobile. He was very active .

Davis Baktiari got a lot of looks at right tackle. Had my eye on him. Mostly went up against Nick Perry and I’d say Baktiari did his job. No real pressure from Perry.

Johnny Jolly was in on a few stops and seemed to be moving well (although he seemed a bit out of breath towards the end).  Thought he had a good night.

Jeremy Ross is my return guy (especially kickoffs). I’ve liked him from the first time he returned a kick last year. He has the right mentality; makes a quick decision, picks a seam and just goes.  I like him better than Cobb, actually.

BJ Coleman still has issues with touch. His strong arm is a detriment at times- hasn’t learned when a pass needs more loft than force.

The stadium addition looks awesome, as does the scoreboard atop. Noise level seemed louder. I think the plan to build a wall of sound will prove to have worked.
