8 Year Old With Down’s Syndrome Scores “Winning Touchdown” for Rhinelander

This was all over Facebook earlier today. I just now got permission to post it.Gabe-and-Coach-685x913

8 year old Gabe White is one of the “managers” of the Rhinelander High School Freshman football team. He has Down’s Syndrome. If you’ve spent any time in the last few months wondering what is wrong with the world, just take a look. There is still a LOT that is right with the world. The Mosinee team gets in on it and makes this little boy’s day! Gabe’s brother is number 84 and is the first to congratulate Gabe after he makes the score. This took place after the game was over but the Rhinelander team asked little Gabe to score the “winning touchdown”. Take a look: Continue reading

Count Your Blessings

Brett Favre has postponed this year’s meeting at Lambeau with Bart Starr and Aaron Rodgers because Bart Starr’s health is still in question and Brett doesn’t want to visit without him. This one brettkidsmall statement forced me to pause and consider two things:

What We Learned Against the Panthers

After a 1-2 start to the regular season, the Packers have finally hit their stride, trouncing a good Aaron Rodgers TD PercentagePanthers team at home in Week 7. Aaron Rodgers was near unstoppable as the seven-year starter hit each of his primary targets for scores and improved his QB rating to 117.3 (second best in the NFL).

Post-Game Rant and Rave

I really don’t have much to rant about except maybe the active list. I feel Tolzien should be starting in2014 Packers place of Flynn. What little time we have seen Flynn this year he has not impressed me. He throws very dangerous passes when he does throw and even on the hand offs he is either running into the running back or he telegraphs his play so the defense knows whats coming. Also I understand that Janis is still raw and they are bringing him along slow but I believe he is better than Dorsey so why was Janis benched again soon as they brought Dorsey of the practice squad? This in my opinion does not make much sense!

Brett Favre Speaks to Mooch About The TD Record

Brett Favre sat down with Steve Mariucci on the morning that Peyton Manning goes out on the field brettkidwith a realistic chance of breaking the career touchdown record. No Packers fan will forget the day that Favre broke the record, with an in route to Greg Jennings, a “Monumental milestone in a legendary career.”

But few records stand the test of time and when Peyton breaks Favre’s record…it will be temporary bliss and one day, Manning will have to watch someone surpass him. But there are is one thing  I love about Brett Favre’s career in touchdowns. Continue reading
