Green Bay Packer-John Deere Afghan

At our house, green and gold stand for the football team Green Bay Packer-John Deere afghan. The football that is shown in this picture was signed by Jordy Nelson and Brady Papinga. They visited our local school many years ago and they signed this football for my daughter. We have a picture of Jordy sitting on a bench with my daughter too. Very good people and role models!
