QUESTION:

What kind of music do you like and where do you go to hear it in Wisconsin?


PLAYER ANSWERS:

James Starks:  My favorite kind of music is R&B and hip-hop. I’ve been to a couple pretty good concerts in Milwaukee.

A.J. Hawk:  I really like the Grand Theatre in Wausau. I saw Dennis Miller there and it was awesome.

Marshall Newhouse:  I really enjoy a hip-hop rap mix, as well as country and rock. I usually go to Milwaukee because they have the bigger artists.

Tramon Williams:  I don’t really go to too many concerts, but I did go to one in Milwaukee at Summerfest a couple years back. My favorite music has to be rap; it gets me psyched for games.

Morgan Burnett:  Definitely rap music for me. I saw Lil Wayne in Milwaukee a couple years ago.

John Kuhn:  I love the atmosphere of Summerfest. It doesn’t matter who is playing, it’s all great.

    Today is Friday….a blistering wind is blowing putting the wind chill pretty low. As an old man who watched the Ice Bowl, I highly recommend that Sunday’s game be pushed ahead to the next windless day. This weather is not humane to animals. Please do not force any of the football players to be exposed to extremely low temperatures! Isn’t someone keeping tabs on the deadly weather? Good luck to both teams in this weather! Go Pack!
