By Nick Freimuth You can meet two Green Bay Packers tonight in Sturgeon Bay. The Jim Olson Motors Red Zone on 104.1 FM kicks off its eighth season bringing Packers fans of Door and Kewaunee Counties and the Green Bay Packers closer together. The show has been called the most family-friendly Packers talk show in the state. Fans travel from all over Northeast Wisconsin to get up close and personal with some of their favorite Packers. The show begins at 5:30 PM with the WRLU Team of the Week. Tonight YMCA Flag Football will be celebrated at Jim Olson Ford (On Duluth Avenue).
At 6:00 PM our Packers guests will arrive to help us celebrate the team of the week and a big win against the Bears last night. Lucas Patrick is this years weekly co-host. His guest will be fellow offensive lineman Justin McCray. The two were roommates last year and live next to each other in a duplex this season, so we know the stories will be rich. Fans will get a chance to ask questions, collect autographs and pose for pictures with the players before, during and after the show.
Tim’s Sports Cards will join us again as a vendor sponsor of the show. Tim Paye will have hundreds of Packers items available for purchase including helmets, footballs, figurines, cards and much more.
