Everyone says there's nothing to do in Green Bay. Many have called it small, slow and even boring. So what do Packers rookies do for fun there? What's the social life of a 23-year-old player in the NFL's smallest market?
Say what you want to about OTAs (organized team activities) or training camp held at St. Norbert College in De Pere; the real start of the 2015 football season was last weekend when the Green Bay Packers held their rookie camp. The two days were for the rookies who got drafted, the undrafted rookies who had been invited as free agents, some players who were around last year and occasional other stragglers.
The Bucks' two rookies this season, Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer, went through a season unlike many others, starting their careers in a lockout and ending the season starting for injury-depleted team. The pair now look ahead.
We've rolled into the final year of smoky bars and cigarettes over beers. At least indoors that is. The impending city wide and statewide smoking ban goes into effect July 5, 2010 and so with less than a year left, Milwaukeeans have a limited time to embrace and enjoy their tobacco filled evenings.
