Kramer, who now lives in Boise, Idaho, in what he calls a comfortable apartment, spent many years on a ranch in the western state – loving every minute.
And he should …
He spent his professional football career in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a place he couldn’t quite find on a map when he was drafted by the Packers back in 1959. All he knew was that it was “by a big lake.”
Much has transpired since those days prior to championships and legacies – not only for Kramer, but for all the coaches, equipment managers, trainers, and fellow teammates who were a part of the Green Bay Packers of the 1960s.
In this first of a two-part audio-video mini-series produced by lombardiave.com’s own P.J. Root, Kramer talks about being drafted by the Packers, some of the opponents he faced, who he thought was the toughest Packer and much more.
And of course, on this the 100th anniversary of Vince Lombardi’s birthday, we can’t ignore the fact that Kramer was so affected by the man. And he tells us so.
So here you go … take a few minutes to listen to this man. He has a lot to say, important things to say … We’re sure you will enjoy it.
