I'm Back

I'm back.

Oh, crap.  The NFL isn't.  I just can't seem to get this timing thing down, can I?

I've been away for a month or so, minus an off-season episode of Cheesehead Radio (and a must-listen, if you haven't already).  And it's time to get back into the swing of things, as there is plenty to comment on, and many draft picks to obsess over.

It may come a surprise to you, but writing is one of my greatest passions.  Match that up with my passion for the Green Bay Packers, and you may wonder why in the world I've been away for a while.  Well, in all honesty, I've been caught up in some real-life drama, and it was too difficult for me to separate what was going on in my life/profession and my Green Bay Packers.  Politics and Packers don't (and shouldn't mix), and the former has been my focus (if not my obsession) over the last month or so.

But, a very wise woman (namely, my wife) has helped me to come to grips that one of the best ways I relieve my stressors is to write, and that I have been neglecting the passion that not only keeps me focused, but keeps me connected with the greatest fans on the planet.  And despite all of the difficult weeks I've been through, there is something that connects all of us together, regardless of who we are, where we live, and what we do:  we're all Green Bay Packer fans.  And this wise woman told me to get back to work.

Thanks, ma'am.

As Kris Burke stated pretty clearly on the offseason episode of Cheesehead Radio, there's been enough in the news lately to divide us.  It's time to focus on things that bring us together, and the Packers should be one of them...even if us coming together to demand the owners and players come together is how it must be.

So, as my "getting back behind the keyboard" gift to Jayme, who has petitioned for this on numerous occasions, check out Cheesehead Radio on iTunes for a bonus track of all the 2010 Show Intros.  The cost to you?   None, because A) we're all Packer fans, and B) I have no head for business or marketing, anyway.

Keep it tuned here at TundraVision and keep an eye out at Cheesehead Radio in the very near future for the first of our draft specials...LIVE!

Welcome back, my man; you were definitely missed. Sounds like this will be more fun than the alternative, despite the current uncertainty.

I second what BigSnakeMan said. You were sorely missed, C.D. We can only hope this is permanent, and that you'll eventually write that piece about DD, Woodson, the HoF and retired jerseys.
BTW, I wrote something about it over at (, as you were stall for quite a while...
