I have to admit I laughed out loud when I read this yesterday and how it was being promoted by the press and liberal blogs.
As Wisconsin voters head to the polls Tuesday for the first of two critical recall election days, the labor backed coalition We Are Wisconsin is pulling out the big guns.
The group released a robocall campaign on Tuesday featuring mammoth former Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Gilbert Brown. The call urges voters to replace six Republican state Senators who supported Governor Scott Walker’s controversial budget bill.
“Hello this is Gilbert Brown, defensive lineman for the ’97 Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, calling on behalf of We Are Wisconsin. I have a message for you about Tuesday’s election, I know a little bit about playing defense and right now it is time to defend Wisconsin. We are holding the line, putting our children’s education before big corporate tax giveaways. It is up to voters like you to make the difference. Please gather your friends and neighbors and go to the polls on Tuesday from 7 am to 8 pm and support Nancy Nusbaum for Senate.”
What’s Gilbert Brown really up to these days? (Besides 375 pounds?)
Why coaching football. Lingerie football.
In the midst of Super Bowl fever in Green Bay, a new football team with, um, non-traditional gameday attire is preparing to make its home in Titletown.
The Lingerie Football League — which features scantily clad female players competing under indoor football rules — announced Tuesday that it will place an expansion franchise in Green Bay for the 2011 season.
The coach is none other than Gilbert Brown, a defensive tackle on the Packers’ Super Bowl XXXI championship team who has been involved with a number of minor-league athletic ventures over the past decade.
The Green Bay team will play at least two games at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon, in the shadow of Lambeau Field, according to the league.
The team’s nickname will be determined by a fan vote, and an open tryout is planned for late February for women over 18 who “possess athleticism, beauty and confidence,” according to a press release.
Knowing how and who RPW may often get for its robocalls, that the Dems have to get Gilbert is frankly sad. The state GOP has Bart Starr in its arsenal; how cool is that?
