Sam Shields is ready to rock you like a hurricane

The title for this post is courtesy of the 1984 smash hit by the hairband Scorpions.

Hurricane RecordWhat a bunch of studs, eh?

Yet this mind-blowing track is also directly connected to Green Bay Packers #37, a rockin' force in his own right. Though Sam Shields is new to all of us Green Bay Packers cheeseheads, he was a category four in his college days with the Miami Hurricanes. This dude clocked a 4.2 second 40 meter dash--the fastest of all the Hurricanes!

Sam Shields HeadshotI can feel the gusts from here. Board up the windows, mother!

We're lucky to have this force of nature on Lambeau Field this fall. He was drafted in 2010 and is slated to be a Green Bay Packers cornerback after playing as defensive back for the past four seasons in college ball.

Now, to end this post, I have one last Green Bay Packers treat for you up my sleeve.

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

You're welcome.


Pat Lee's Coldest Winter Ever

If you're looking for a good read this summer, Green Bay Packers cornerback Pat Lee can point you in the right direction: The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah. The book revolves around the action of Winter, a female teenage protagonist, who endures a difficult upbringing, broken family, and faces homicide and drug use in her neighborhood.

Coldest Winter Ever
Though Winter's life is much more challenging than Pat Lee's, it's pretty clear that the novel's title was fitting for his first season with the Green Bay Packers! Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Pat Lee played for Auburn's football squad and was at home in the sultry climes of Alabama. Yet in 2008, Pat Lee was drafted to the Green Bay Packers and was whisked away to the frozen tundra of east-central Wisconsin. No wonder his knee gave out in December of that year--it snapped like an ice-encrusted twig unused to the subzero temps at Lambeau Field!

Cold Pat Lee
Fortunately, Pat Lee has acclimated his body over the years though he maintains a home in Miami for those brutal Wisconsin Januarys. You can see him in his arctic glory this season. Hopefully he stays hot this season with the Green Bay Packers!


Gingers for Tim Masthay!!!

Think fast! What do the following pictures all have in common?

Ariel the RedheadRedhead Tim Masthay
Redhead Queen Elizabeth II know you weren't expecting a pop quiz today, but I hope the similarities (and the obvious title of this post) helped you along. Yes, these fine folks are all proud redheads. Carrot tops. Pelirrojos. No matter the language you speak or country from which you originate, we can all agree that redheads are pretty awesome people. I should know. I have orange hair, too!

Tim Masthay, Green Bay Packers free agent acquired in 2010, along with Ariel, Queen Elizabeth I, and myself are all part of an exclusive club. Less than 2% of Americans have blazing locks; roughly just 4% of people worldwide can boast the same. It is the rarest hair color on this planet, people! And Green Bay Packers' Tim Masthay has the most burning hair on his team.

Let's hope his firey hair matches his on-field fire for playing in the NFL. (How'd you like that segue?) He is still a little known player who comes from the Kentucky Wildcats college football squad and was drafted in 2009, but quickly released just three months later, by the Indianapolis Colts. Since the Colts didn't work out, I'm chalking it up to the fact that Tim Masthay decided red hair looks best with green uniforms (opposite on the color wheel!) and has been angling for a spot on Lambeau Field ever since. Let's wish him the best this 2010-2011 Green Bay Packers season and see some red out on the field!

Bryan Bulaga Player Profile

Bryan Bulaga was born March 21st, 1989 in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Bulaga played football for Marian Central Catholic High School and went on to play college football at the University of Iowa. In college, Bulaga was dominant from the beginning. He was named Freshmen All Big Ten and was on the 2009 Outland Trophy watch. After his junior season, Bulaga declared for the NFL Draft. He was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 23rd pick in the draft of the 1st round. Bulaga will spend this season competing with veterens Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher for playing time at the tackle positions.


Anthony Toribio

Anthony Toribio is a defensive tackle for the Green Bay Packers. Toribio was born on March 1st, 1985 in Miami Florida. He was signed as a practice squad player by the Miami Dolphins and now is a member of the Packers. He was a practice squad player for the Packers, and is currently a member of their 53 man roster. He played college football at Carson-Newman College. You have probably never heard of Anthony and Toribio and I hadn't heard of him until I was told to write a post a about him and that is because he is not a good football player who will have no impact on the Packers next year.
