Worth your time to read.

After more than three decades working as a sports journalist, including the last 11 years at the Green Bay Press-Gazette, it's time to say farewell.

It's been an unforgettable ride that has included coverage of three Super Bowls, one World Series, and countless other high school and college championships.

Since December 1980, when I was named sports editor of the Portage Daily Register, my life has revolved around athletes, coaches and games. My career path took me to the Oshkosh Northwestern, Milwaukee Sentinel, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Packer Plus magazine and the Press-Gazette.

Can you believe I fooled my bosses along the way into paying me to cover sports, something I truly loved?

But all good things eventually run their course, so it's time for me to blaze a different trail. On Monday, I will begin a new job as communications director at Green Bay Community Church. Before I make that transition, let me share some reflections on a memorable sports journalism career

That's cool, but this guy is kind of a dufus. LOL. Not as bad as Vic Ketchman, but kind of old and a little bit out of touch. Still, I hope he does his own blog.

So long Mr. V. I was a big fan of his. And to Nerd's point, Vic is my favorite. That guy thinks almost the exact same way I do about everything. It is pretty wild when you think of the age difference and the fact that I am relatively new to NFL fandom but I am just so passionate about the game and wars that go on in every game. What a sport. I hope the NFL doesn't ruin itself in the decades to come.
thanks Post received 2 applause.

I recall the article about the Packers playing all home games at Lambeau. I didn't understand his point at all. The article came off like since Milwaukee helped the Packers, they were forever in their debt. Aside from that, he was not out of touch at all.

Without the infusion of money/ticket sales in the early days there would be no Green Bay Packers today. The team was nearly bankrupt and Milwaukee fans helped save the day. that was the point. He was saying keep games in Milwaukee even when yu do need to as a way of saying thank you we recognize your value to the franchise.

uffda udfa (3h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (3h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (3h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (3h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (3h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (3h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (12h) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (12h) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (12h) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (12h) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (22h) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (22h) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
