Max McGee didn’t like the fact that he was headed to the ‘boonies’

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame today posted a video of Max McGee, the late great wide receiver who is seen (below) saying that he wasn’t really pleased being drafted by the Packers, a team he didn’t know much about at the time.

He goes on to say that being drafted by a team way up in the “boonies” was the furthest thing on his mind. He thought he was going to Chicago or Los Angeles.

I guess things happen for a reason.

I won’t wreck any of the other interesting tidbits ol’ Max provides here. Take a look:
