25 Hours t to Go! A LOOONG FG is needed...

1 like

Current Green Bay Packers' kicker Mason Crosby holds the records for longest field goals in team history. In 2011 he hit a 58 yarder and in 2010 and 2011 he nailed 56 yard field goals. Long kicks for sure.

Packer Nation, On the Road with the Green & Gold - A Journey Into Packer Nation is nearing the last ticks on the clock. To win this campaign we need a LOOOONG field goal, maybe a 99 yarder. But as they say stranger things have happened.

I know I've said it before but it is sincere, thank you to all who have supported this project and believed in my ability to execute and deliver to you a view into the far corners of Packer Nation. I believe in this project and know there is value to following through with it. Knitting the greatest fan base together in a time of unmatched connectivity can only make Packer Nation stronger.

You only miss the kicks that you don't line up and take. Tell your friends and the Packer fans in your life that we've got under 24 hours to make a long field goal and their pledge can make a difference. With the wind at our back we can make this. Let's do this!

Go Pack Go!

4 Days to go... Time for the Ol' Gunslinger

1 like

With only four days to go it's time to turn to who else but the Ol' Gunslinger. Yes you read that correct. Brett Favre who engineered 30 - 4th quarter come from behind victories and 45 game winning drives in his 20 seasons in the NFL.

If there is ever a time to engineer a come from behind victory this is the time. This Kickstarter campaign has only four days remaining to meet the $40,000 project goal. If this goal doesn't get met the project doesn't get funded. Without funding the stories, sights, sounds and flavors buried deep within Packer Nation remain hidden and out of the light.

Just like Brett Favre throwin' the ol' pigskin around the yard to steal a victory from the clutches of defeat we need Packer Nation to rally and make a late push to allow "On the Road with the Green & Gold -  A Journey Into Packer Nation" to exit victorious and move this project forward.

For those of you who have already pledged, thank you! You ROCK! Now tell your friends and let's make this thing a reality!

Let's go Packer Nation, this project should see the light it needs to be brought to life. I know the clock is ticking. I haven't given up and neither should you. Let's do this. No time to pledge later. For later is right now. Click here to Pledge.

Go Pack Go!

10 Days Left - Another Tidbit of what could come your way, Y'all!

Hey Y'all,

Only 10 days to go to bring On the Road with the Green & Gold - A Journey Into Packer Nation to life.

For those who have supported this campaign, you rock! Honestly, I appreciate your belief in this project and for believing in my ability to execute this. Thank you!

There truly are Packer fans all across the nation and the world for that matter. Several of those fans have reached out to me to share their passion and their stories about their place in Packer Nation. One of those fans, Greg Stielstra of Nashville Tennessee emailed me to tell me about the Nashville Packer Backers. I subsequently spoke with Greg by phone and he relayed that the passion for the Green Bay Packers that is alive and well in the Country Music Capital of the World.

I blogged about the Nashville Packer Backers at Lombardiave.com. Give it a read here.

Like I stated earlier 10 days to go. Share this project, and tell people you supported it and why, and how they can support it too. This link here can be used to pass along to the Packer fans in you life.

The odds may be against us, but we can do this!

Go Pack Go!

Epic Comeback and the halftime speech

1 like

In December of 2013 the Green Bay Packers went into halftime down 26-3 to the villainous Dallas Cowboys. Playing in Dallas in the stadium known as Jerry World the Green Bay Packers mounted an epic comeback to defeat the Dallas Cowboys 37-36 and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Packer Nation, "On the Road with the Green & Gold - A Journey Into Packer Nation" is going into halftime of this Kickstarter campaign down a similar margin.

I'm looking at the numbers, and the numbers don't lie. You like this project and you like my writing. But going into halftime and thinking about my halftime speech, I think it's time to channel a little Vince Lombardi, "What the hell is going on out here?" "Everybody grabbing, grab, grab, grab! But nobody pledging! You want the content, but you want it for free."

Packer Nation it is my passion to bring Packer Nation to you, but I cannot do it alone. If this interests you as I know it does it is a team effort. And I need to you to tackle this opportunity. Step forward and pledge $25 and tell your friends. Together we can do this! 

Let's mount this epic comeback! Let's make this one for the record books. Let's record and share the stories that are held in Packer Nation and make some new ones! Here we go!!

Go Pack Go!

The Numbers Don't Lie - People Like This Project

Have you ever looked at the box score following a game the Packers should have won but some how they came up short? You looked at the first downs, the passing yards, the rushing yards, maybe even the touch downs and you can't figure why they lost the game. Until you see the usual culprit, a crucial turnover.

As backers you all have demonstrated that you believe in this project, you put your money where you mouth is and have said this should happen. For that I have very much respect and gratitude. I appreciate your belief in me and my ability to execute this endeavor.

But here is the deal, I still need your help. You believe in this project so I need you to advocate for it and tell people that this is a project that should come to life. Show and tell them how to pledge.

Because the number don't lie.

This project has been shared on the Kickstarter website 157 times and counting. Which is great, but it only has 25 backers. It is now 7% funded, but there are only 19 days to go.

People like this project and they like my writing. On Monday I posted a blog on Lombardiave.com, Green Bay Packers with quality depth at running back. On Wednesday I posted a blog about the Cheddarhead Pack of Houston. It received and astounding 245 Facebook Likes and 16 Tweets. Cumulatively those two posts have been read well over 4000 times this week alone.

If each of those people who read those two posts pledged just $10 WE and I mean WE would be on our way! However at the moment we are looking at the box score and it's looking like a turnover could lose this game. Let's hang onto this ball!

Share this update, time is of the essence. Post to Facebook with a link to the project. Tell your friends and the Packer fans in your life. This can happen and it should happen. Let's Do this!

Go Pack Go!
