Hey, Doyle Went to the Final Four

WisPolitics.com is reporting Governor Scott Walker may attend Super Bowl XLV on Sunday as the Green Bay Packers face the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“Obviously as the leader of the state and the chief cheerleader for the Green Bay Packers I’d like to be there, but with the State of the State address and the budget we haven’t worked out the logistics yet, but we should know by the end of the week,” he said.

The Green Bay Packers have offered local officials Super Bowl tickets at face value. Asked if Walker has been offered tickets by the team or another source, Walker’s spokesman Cullen Werwie wouldn’t confirm that the guv has been offered tickets, and said no decision has been made yet on whether he’ll go to the big game.

Walker gives the “State of the State Address” tomorrow night.

I wasn’t following state politics much in 1997 and 1998 when the Packers were last in the Super Bowl to remember if then-Governor Tommy G. Thompson attended the games in New Orleans and San Diego respectively.

Former Governor Jim Doyle did go to New Orleans when a Wisconsin team made the Final Four Men’s Basketball Tournament in 2003.  Then, Marquette was there, led by future NBAer Dwayne Wade.

The trip was paid for by a campaign donor, and given the green light by the State Ethics Board, the precursor to the Government Accountability Board.
