Passing Into Eternity

So sad at the passing of the legendary Bart Starr. He was inspiring to me when I met him as a kid (as I express enthusiastically in the film), and I was happy to have met him again while filming the documentary. I even had the pleasure of exchanging emails with him after that. These … Continue reading

Seymour Hamburger Museum Event

This (and several more to come) are from events that we did some time back and are finally getting around to putting the photos up for archival purposes.  This was a fun one with Chester.  He has since said that it was one of his favorite events with me as the audience was incredibly enthusiastic … Continue reading

Things Happened At Hedberg

Pictures from our show at Hedberg Public Library in Janesville.  It was a heck of a fun time with my friend Steve “The Owner” Tate showing up, as well is many terrific Janesvillians (not a word, I know, but a fun one). * * * 

Chris Kroeze on Team Blake

Singer-Musician and Wisconsin native from Barron County (where I grew up) may have the big stage on The Voice, but the locals in the area sure know how to support one of their own.  So much love all over the county, and rightfully so.   Good Luck, Chris on #TeamBlake * * *    

The Lambeau Leaper Himself

Great to see LeRoy Butler, the founder of the Lambeau Leap, at the Barron High School for a homecoming pep rally and inspirational talk.  I just happened to be in the area when he was there, so I stopped in and gave him a copy of the Cheeseheads DVD.  In return, he gave me a … Continue reading

According to a news release, whichever brewery’s team reigns supreme following … Continue reading

The Cheese Curd Capital Reigns

On a recent drive through Ellsworth to pick up some cheese curds for sampling at our River Falls Public Library show, the sun was lighting up the Ellsworth Creamery so wonderfully that I had to snag some new pictures.  Plus, they deserve a bit of spotlighting for sponsoring our shows with many wonderful flavors of … Continue reading

The Awesomeness Of Don Q

While down in Dodgeville for an event at the Dodgeville Public Library in April, I finally got to stay at a hotel I’d been driving past and wanting to stay at for years, the Don Q Inn. Was it because of the awesome airplane outside that apparently has Farrah Fawcett’s signature on the hull?  Could … Continue reading

The Marcol Miracle Game Ball

When Chester and I were at an event last summer, a couple came in with an official NFL game ball that they said was the actual ball the Chester had kicked & caught for the touchdown in the 1980 home opener against the Bears.  From all evidence they had with them, it seems as if … Continue reading
