Mike and His Bike

It’s back to the early 1990’s today as we put up a photo of head coach Mike Holmgren on one of his Harley Davidson motorcycles of the era. Also notable, but probably already forgotten by most fans, is the pre-renovation Lambeau Field in the background. This is the old stadium that was covered with corrugated sheet metal painted green on the exterior. Holmgren is now the president of the Cleveland Browns, who defeated the Packers in the first preseason game out in Ohio. Someday perhaps he’ll be honored at an alumni game in Green Bay when he’s retired from football for good. For now, we’ll just see him come through Titletown with whichever team he’s working for at the time. We do thank him for the success achieved in his time in Green Bay, though. Like today, those were good days, too.
