Dinner With Favre & Starr

Green Bay – – Imagine having dinner with Brett Favre and Bart Starr at the Lambeau Field Atrium, as former nose tackle Gilbert Brown, and center Frank Winters are inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame.

One catch. The tickets are already sold out.

The 1,000 tickets to the annual Packers Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Banquet were already sold out before today's announcement that Favre and Starr were added to the list of V.I.P's, and would share the head table as presenters.

Imagine what scalpers/fanatics will now be offering to buy those tickets? Keep an eye on E-bay.

Favre has agreed to come back to present his former center and friend from the Super Bowl XXXI team Frank Winters. Starr will present another inductee, long-time team video director Al Treml.  Former defensive lineman Santana Dotson will have the honors for Gilbert "The Gravedigger" Brown.

The Packers Hall of Fame is located inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. The 38th Induction Banquet is scheduled for Saturday, July 19th, 2008.

"THE THREE AMIGOS" NOW "DOS AMIGOS" 

Favre, Winters, and tight end Mark Chmura were the closest of friends in the mid-90's. But there was a falling out with Chmura after he left the team due to a neck injury, followed by involvement in a 2000 scandal, attending a high school prom post party, in which he drank with teens in a hot tub, and was accused of having sexual contact with a underage female. All charges were dropped.  More on Chmura trial:

In 2005, during a recording session, Favre asked me "has that thing down in Milwaukee with 'Chewy" blown over yet? I should call him."  Apparently Favre didn't get around to it.

When Favre decided to wait the following spring, until late April, to decide whether to return with the Packers, Chmura was quoted nationwide as saying Favre "…is a selfish guy. He's a very selfish guy. And what people don't know, I'm not going to say this to throw the guy under the bus, but this is a guy from my arrest to my acquittal never called me one time." Chmura says he reached out by attending the funeral of Favre's father, Irv, in 2003.

FOX SPORTS RADIO IN MILWAUKEE TONIGHT!

It's the best sports show in America, coast – to – coast.  J.T. "The Brick" on FSR's "Game Time React" is broadcasting live from Kelly's Bleachers, 52nd & Bluemound, in Milwaukee tonight from 9pm to 1am, heard weeknights on 1250 WSSP-AM.

Say hi to J.T. and the FSR staff tonight for me. I'm a wuss.

I'm doing early morning sports updates on  "The Doug Russell Show" from 5am to 9am. Otherwise I'd be there with you to close Kelly's with J.T. and the gang. They called and asked where can they get a bite to eat around 2am after the show. I told them Ma Fishers, The Forum II, Pizza Shuttle (delivers to their downtown hotel until 3am) or any nearby George Webbs. All fine places, but strange we don't really have that many 24 hour choices in Milwaukee. What am I missing? E-mail me suggestions to 1250wssp@gmail.com 

NFL – "SPYGATE OVER"  FOR NOW

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says after months of investigation, and interviews with 50 people, “Spygate” is over.

Goodell met with former Patriots video guy Matt Walsh, who told Goodell there is no tape of the Rams walk-thru the day before Super bowl XXXVI.

Walsh said today he did attend the walk thru, and reported to a Patriots assistant coach that Marshall Faulk lined up to return a kickoff, and made note of shifts the Rams tight ends would make against  defensive formations.

Faulk did return a kick just before that half in that game, but ended up going out of bounds.
