Morning Buzz: Packers set to take on Steelers
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers and the NFL from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with this fantastic piece from Gary D’Amato on one of the Packers’ oldest fans. She’s actually been a fan since nearly the very beginning of the franchise.
The Green Bay Packers organized as a semi-professional football team in the second-floor offices of the old Green Bay Press-Gazette building on Aug. 11, 1919.
Ida Motiff was born 70 days later.
Not many Packers fans can say they’re as old as the 98-year-old franchise. And not many can say they’ve been season-ticket holders since 1950.
It’s been quite a run for Motiff, who owns four season tickets and attended at least one game every year for 67 years. She’s seen every great Packers player from Tony Canadeo to Aaron Rodgers.
