Bikers, Military, Friends & Family – HELP US!

Posted in Bill's Blog

 DSC02453We’ve updated the info for the Steinhafel’s Big Unit’s Poker Run Presented by Road America Benefiting the Fisher House of Wisconsin.

When my son was young, I had to take him to live at a Ronald McDonald House in St. Louis.  The fact that we were able to stay there, for an extended period of time cost free, meant the world.  AND…having family around him made the experience a lot more tolerable for the entire family. 

Having loved ones around while you’re going through something traumatic has been proven to aid healing and rehabilitation.

I think that everyone knows someone who has either served in the military and/or been injured in service to our country.  … Read the rest

Sign Flynn, You Don’t Want Another Bad Break

Posted in Bill's Blog

MattFlynnWarmupsA couple of years ago Matt Flynn flew to the Emerald City of Seattle for a 3 year – $26 million dollar contract.  Enter Russell Wilson and the journey began elsewhere.

The Raiders….. NOPE

The Bills…..NOPE

So back to the Packers and an Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone and Flynn finds himself starting.  All he needed was to get a couple of wins.  He sustained and the Packers ended up in the post-season.

At this point Flynn remains unsigned and all is seemingly quiet on the free agent front.  If I’m Flynn, I wouldn’t sign right away either.  I’d wait and see what happens in the draft, wait for OTA’s and mini-camps to get going and see if a QB goes down with an injury and capitalize if I could. … Read the rest

Hank Aaron; Thanks For Sharing

Posted in Bill's Blog

Hank-Aaron40 years ago yesterday, one of the most gracious men I ever met, broke Babe Ruth’s home run record of 714.  Henry “Hank” Aaron belted his 715th homer.  A record that no one thought would ever be eclipsed.

I had a chance to talk with Aaron 12 years ago at the Vince Lombardi Award of Excellence Dinner Ball in Milwaukee and he described to me the chase for 715 and his angst as the homerun numbers crept towards that crescendo.

Aaron described to me the pride and sincere joy he felt just to be playing the game that he loved so dearly and the unbridled hate that he received from some who believed that a black man had no business being on the field….not because of his ability but because of the color of his skin.… Read the rest

The Brewers Are Set To Impress

Posted in Bill's Blog

While in Boston over the weekend, Ryan Braun told Adam McCalvy of Brewers.com that the thumb was bothering him and that he really didn’t have the strength in the hand that he needed to drive the ball.

The Brewers got a sweep of the Red Sox and then headed to Philly.  In Philly’s home opener, Braun drilled not 1, not 2 but 3 home runs and drove in 7.  If that’s a weak thumb, I would hate to see a fully healed Braun.

The ironic thing is, the Philly fans, as expected, booed Braun mercilessly. As Braun homered the 3rd time he seemed to be talking to himself as he rounded second base as if to say, “Yeah, keep booing me and see where I stick the next pitch I see”.… Read the rest
