AUTHORS OF MUDBATHS AND BLOODBATHS SIGNING COPIES SATURDAY AT PRO SHOP
Former Packers running back Dorsey Levens, a member of the Super Bowl XXXI Championship team, will serve as honorary captain for Sunday's game against the Rams.
As part of the organization's season-long celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Super Bowl win, General Manager Ted Thompson has invited members of the 1996 team to serve as honorary captains for each of the Packers' remaining home games.
Levens also will be at the Packers Pro Shop Saturday, Oct. 7, from 3 to 4 p.m., visiting with fans. On Sunday, Sept. 17, from 10:15 to 11 a.m., Levens will be visiting with fans on the Associated Bank Club Level, an area accessible to game attendees with private box or club seat tickets, as guest of the 'Alumni Meet and Greet.'
Also featured at the Pro Shop Saturday, from 1 to 3 p.m., authors Gary D'Amato and Cliff Christl will be signing copies of their book: Mudbaths and Bloodbaths-The Inside Story of the Bears-Packer Rivalry. No two teams have drawn up such a deep well of emotion among their players, coaches, and fans when playing each other. Covering 152 Bears-Packers games since the series began in 1921, this book unfolds the history of the teams and their competition with intensity, and is the definitive book on one of NFL's fiercest rivalries.
D'Amato and Christl are both award-winning sports writers for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
