What pops into your head when you hear “The Gravedigger?”
Tackles, sacks, a jovial dance — and Green Bay Packers football, naturally.
Former Packers nose tackle and longtime fan favorite Gilbert Brown will be the guest on our Aug. 29 season premiere of Clubhouse Live, USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin’s live, weekly and award-winning Packers show.
The program will be held outside in the courtyard at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in downtown Appleton, beginning at 6 p.m., as we kick off the 2016 Packers season with a tailgate style event.
Can’t make it? Then watch the big show live online at clubhouselive.com.
Brown, a key member of the Packers’ 1996 Super Bowl title team and a Packers Hall of Famer, will join me and fellow co-hosts Ricardo Arguello and Sarah Riley for a fun and interactive discussion as we mark the 20th anniversary of the Packers’ Super Bowl XXXI victory over the New England Patriots, reminisce about Brett Favre, Mike Holmgren and Reggie White and look ahead to the upcoming NFL season.
He played with the Packers for all 10 of his NFL seasons and was dubbed “The Gravedigger” for the celebratory shimmy he displayed whenever he stonewalled a ball carrier.
