    It was an EXCITING 3 days! Friday night i got the "wildcard" autograph of LeRoy Butler. I also got Bob Harlan to autograph the photo of him and I together, so that was cool! I had John Jones (who takes over for Harlan when he retires) to sign my mini helmet. I also got Bob Sanders to sign the Fan Fest program. I then got to do "play by play" of the Packer overtime victory over the Vikings (when Freeman caught the ball off his back) which was put on a DVD. It was really neat to watch when i got home! And even better, it was FREE! The 3 "wildcard" autos friday night were Butler, Antonio Freeman, and Coach McCarthy.
    Saturday i got the "wildcard" auto of Gilbert Brown. I had him sign the pic i took of him at last year's Fan Fest. Through the day i got Brady Poppinga on one of his rookie football cards. He wasn't going to sign it with a Sharpie marker, as he told me it bubbled up when he tried signing someone else's card. I told him the trick was to run your thumb over the card a few times, and that removes some of the gloss, and it will work fine. (I had already done it) so he signed it and he said "You were RIGHT! It works!" So i got to teach a Packer something! LOL! I had Don Majkowski sign a photo i took of him back in 1990. He looked at it and said "Man! THATS old!" I got my pic with him, i just hope it turns out. I had one of the fest workers take it for me. I also got Larry McCarren, Kevin Barry, and Will Whittaker's auto's.

    Sunday did NOT start out good for me...........i was taking a shower at the motel, and while washing my hair i turned around to get the soap off my long hair, and because i had my eyes closed so i wouldn't get soap in them, i ended up taking a nasty fall. I have bilateral Meniere's disease, and was NOT thinking when i closed my eyes and turned. I had NO balance. I hurt my right knee, my right hand and elbow. It may be broke. But i knew if i went to the hospital, i would miss Fan Fest sunday, so i just toughed it out. I didn't get any wildcard autos sunday (when of course it was the BEST ones, Starr, Hornung and Max McGee.) So i just got in line for the only other autograph sunday, which was Aaron Rodgers. He had a long line at 10am already, and he wasn't signing till 12:30pm to 2pm. So i pulled up a chair at 10am, and sat there till i got his sig at 1:40pm. There were a few hundred people behind me........i don't know if they got his sig or not.
    On the way out, i said hi to Jerry Kramer and shook his hand. It was alot of fun!

    Cheesey,
    I'm happy for you! Sounds like you had a great time!

    Sorry about your fall, I wish we had some players that are as tough as you.

    It had to be worth it to suck it up just to shake Jerry Kramers hand.

    Get well young man!

    Thanks Yooper!
    My wife was NOT too happy to hear about my fall. She worries about me all the time. Now.......shaking Kramer's hand was NOT such a smart idea on my part..........he's got a STRONG grip, and my hand (which was already hurt) did NOT appreciate the extra abuse! (But it STILL was worth it!!!LOLOL!!!) :lol:
