Two new books add to Packers' lore

Not everyone can say they changed their child's diaper in the tunnel at Lambeau Field, but sportscaster Jessie Garcia can.

It's among the experiences she recounts in her new book, "My Life with the Green & Gold: Tales from 20 Years of Sportscasting.'' Garcia talks about everything from being in the host chair of the "Mike McCarthy Show'' to riding on the Packers bus as one of the Midwest's first female sportscasters.

She'll sign copies from 8 to 10 a.m. today in the lobby of the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, 2040 Airport Drive, Ashwaubenon.

Also new to the Packers book library: "Packers Pride: Green Bay Greats Share Their Favorite Memories'' by former Packers defensive back LeRoy Butler and author Rob Reischel.

The book covers such moments as Don Majkowski's touchdown pass against the Bears in 1989 that became known as the "Instant Replay Game" and former player Gary Knafelc becoming Lambeau Field's public address announcer after overcoming his stuttering.

Butler and Reischel will sign copies at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at The Reader's Loft, 2069 Central Court, Bellevue.
