Whether you are one of my regular readers or new to my blog, my name is Jeff Miller, and not only do I follow sports for the Big920 I also produce the Dan Conry Show on Newstalk1130 WISN on Sundays from 2-6pm. Since there was scheduling conflict, and my buddy John got tickets to todays game in Green Bay, so I’ll be there as a fan! Check back for a recap.
