VIDEO: “An American Coach in London”

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Green Bay Packers, but in anticipation of the preseason game this evening, I thought it would be nice to share in some laughter. Our fearless leader, “Jersey” Al, and some of our regular readers are also fans of European football (i.e., soccer), so this one goes out to them, as well. Enjoy!

Jordy Nelson’s New Commercial is Pretty Awesome

Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson joins the club of Packers players appearing in commercials. In a spot for TravelWisconsin.com, Jordy stars in a clever takeoff of the Wizard of Oz. This, of course, makes a lot of sense taking into account his Kansas roots.

The commercial is very well done, although Jordy shouldn’t be thinking about quitting his day job.
