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

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

Fun With Fundraisers UWBC

We did a show at the UWBC Campus in Rice Lake as a fundraiser for the Barron County Historical Museum (located in Cameron), since I’ve always been a big fan of that place, having been there dozens of of times in my youth.  We raised a bit of money, had fun hanging with Chester Marcol, … Continue reading

APC Insider Event With Chester

Fun with Chester is redundant, as he’s always a blast to hang out with.  And we did just that at the Appleton Post Crescent screening of the doc on the UW Fox Valley campus in Menasha.  Just down the hall is a really cool planetarium.  Really good turnout too, about 80 people in attendance.  What … Continue reading

No JJ Watts, But Lots Of Comfort

We had scheduled a show the weekend of the Texans game at Lambeau Field, but despite JJ Watts not playing as he was out for the season on injured reserve (the biggest reason for that weekend), we went ahead and had lots of fun with Chester, the staff at Comfort Suites, and the great people … Continue reading

Green Bay Legends Signing

Stumbled upon these from a while ago.  I had the good fortune of being put in with Chester Marcol and Dave Robinson (both in the documentary) as well as several others from the Lombardi Era for a Legends signing event at the Green Bay Distillery.  That was a great deal of fun, even if I … Continue reading

Orson Welles “War Of The Worlds” in history today: The Presteblog

78 years ago today, a Cheesehead (though the term was still young then) scared the pants off of most of America with his radio broadcast.  Orson Welles was a Wisconsin native who grew up in Kenosha, and became one of the greatest filmmakers in history. Today in 1938, CBS (radio, obviously, because there was no … Continue reading

WAUKESHA WIZARDRY AT THE PCT

While the construction limited out audience to about half a theatre full, the Waukesha crowd was by far one of the most engaged and enthusiastic crowds we’ve ever had.  Who knew that four dozen or so people could be so engaged and enthralled as to be one of my favorite showings to date.   Afterwards, … Continue reading

Hanging With Lucas Cates

Had a good time hanging with my pal Lucas Cates today in Madison.  Lucas has a couple of awesome songs we were able to use (with his permission) in the film, including his humorous “Quarterback Copycat” (Click Here Quarterback Copycat Video).  He also has a cameo appearance in the end credits of the film, a fun … Continue reading
