Read this story about A.J. Hawk presiding over a wedding
It is because of, and not due to, the fact that the NFL is releasing the 2014 preseason schedule today like it’s something to celebrate, that we are finally ready to accept that we are in some serious doldrums, NFL and Packers-wise. The draft is a month away, and we’re hard at work putting together our May-June issue of Packerland Pride magazine. This is a great time to work, not so much a great time for news.
But then, also today, comes this fantastic story from Jenny Vrentas of The MMQB on Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk, his friendship with Packers athletic trainer Nate Weir, and how it came to be that Hawk presided over Weir’s wedding in March.
Hawk’s preparation for this job is awesome, as is the detail he put into his speeches. It’s also another great show of the strength and bond within the Packers’ locker room. Anyway, give it a read, if you like. Go offseason.
