Anna’s Wish To Meet Packers Featured On Sunday NFL Countdown
You know I hate posting press releases on here, but sometimes something comes along that even my cold, cold heart cannot ignore.
This is one of those times and it demonstrates once again why the Green Bay Packers are the best organization in organizational history.
On ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown (11 a.m.-1 p.m. ET), Anna’s wish to meet the Green Bay Packers will be featured. A 13-year-old from Horicon, Wis., who received a heart transplant earlier this year, Anna attended a Packers practice in August through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She received all-pro treatment from the Packers – Anna got her own locker and jersey, hit the field with the team and Coach Mike McCarthy, posed for a Lambeau Leap and enjoyed lunch with her favorite players, Al Harris and Aaron Rodgers.
Emmy Award-winning reporter Chris Connelly, who hosts the annual SportsCenter “My Wish” series, interviews Anna and her family about her courageous recovery from a life-threatening heart condition and her adoration of the Packers.
This is me again and I think that’s pretty damn awesome.
