Wisconsin Badger Fan: “Kilted” Ken Werner

*Originally published on January 10, 2013. 
*Updated on July 23, 2014 via an email from Mr. Ken Werner.  In that email, Mr. Werner informed me that:

  1. His name is spelled “Werner” (not Warner).  
  2. He has, in fact, attended (to this date) 427 games (not 40).  In other words, the 40 that appears in the article is a typo.  

I really appreciate the email from Mr. Werner.

Phil Steele’s 2012 CFB Preview

by Travis Normand

I want to give a quick “thank you” to Phil Steele’s team.  Not only did they put together another fantastic preseason edition of their annual magazine, but they sent me a copy of it extremely quick.

I knew the magazine was on its way to my mail box, but I wasn’t quite sure when it would arrive.  On my way to work this morning, I stopped to check the mail (just in case), and as I opened my mail box, I saw the big white envelope with the Phil Steel address printed in purple.  Bingo!

Let the research begin!

[If you don’t have a copy of Phil Steele’s magazine, you are missing out.  You can either buy it at a book store, etc. or you can order it online, HERE.]
