"Packers Pride"book signing at Lambeau, and Butler on Favre
GREEN BAY - There was no shortage of Packers pride at Lambeau Field Thursday night.
Former safety LeRoy Butler was at the Pro Shop signing copies of his new book, "Packers Pride: Green Bay Greats Share Their Favorite Memories." In it, the 12-year NFL veteran shares his and other players' stories about legends like Bart Starr and Paul Hornung.
"It gave me a chance to be a football geek. I've always wanted to talk football, but in my autobiography, I just talked about my life from being in a wheelchair having club feet and inventing the Lambeau Leap and I left out all the football stories," Butler said.
The book takes a look at legendary games and favorite behind-the-scene stories of the players and coaches of the green and gold.
Butler also writes in his new book about the legendary Brett Favre. And after today's report of a proposal from the Rams, he says he questions whether that call was actually made.
"I think it's just a myth because every few years people always talk about calling Brett to play, but it's not going to happen. That's what tells you how lucky we are to have Aaron Rodgers when all these teams that are terrible are calling up quarterbacks 44-years-old, that's no knock on Brett, but the league is just not good right now with quarterbacks."
Butler's book is available for purchase at the Packers Pro Shop inside Lambeau Field and at other book retail locations around Green Bay.
