Today Donald Drive announced his retirement and it brought a tear to my eye. Not so much that he's retiring, but that he's retiring as a Packer. Sure this last season his role was greatly diminished and he didn't get a lot of touches, but he did make plays and every now and then you were reminded that this 14 year career Packer is still a man you have to account for.
I'm glad he got his ring and I was hoping he'd get one more. But I raise my glass to number 80! The man affectionately know as Double D and one hell of a football player. From this lifelong Packers fan I will miss you, but I'm hoping that maybe the Packers realize what a great asset you would be to the club off the field.
I don't own any Driver autos, something I'm probably going to have to remedy. But I do have a couple really nice cards that I'll have to feature here later when I can get them scanned.
Right now I'm just a little sad and happy that I won't have to see number 80 play for anyone else. It's a little selfish sure, but really how many Jerry Rice fans wanted to see him go and play for the Raiders?
