New Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame Emerges

New Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame Emerges

On the day the recently resuscitated and suddenly quite vigorous Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame made its latest news – announcing Feb. 1 that it will celebrate the Green Bay Packers' 1966 championship team at its upcoming induction – the winter afternoon sun, high in Milwaukee's southwestern sky, shone down brilliantly on 4th Street, covering much of the promenade in shade and silhouetting the bronze-plaque visages that commemorate the state's greatest sports heroes.

There's an overly embellished metaphor somewhere in all of that – something about the heretofore-dormant Hall, once active and esteemed, casting a long shadow on its saviors, who are looking to return it to glory, or at least relevance – and if it's embellished enough, it might approach the grandiloquence of sportswriters from half a century ago, and perhaps even Joseph Krueger might have deemed it worthy.

Former Packers star Kramer still paving way

Fifty years on and Jerry Kramer is still leading the Pack.

Kramer, who was at the Boise Airport in Idaho on Tuesday preparing to head to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif., said he expected to be remembered for a couple of years and then would "drift off into the mist of time. I just assumed as a lineman I wouldn't be remembered all that much."

Instead, he has been a regular representative of the Lombardi-era Green Bay Packers, and will be again when the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame honors the Super Bowl I champions during its 2016 induction ceremony April 30 in Milwaukee. Former Packers receiver Donald Driver and retired University of Wisconsin basketball coach Bo Ryan are this year's inductees.
