GREEN BAY - A man who started the Packers and two of its greatest early stars are hitting the 21st century world of social media.
Well, not really, since they're hopefully in a better place celebrating all thing Packers with Vince Lombardi.
But recently, we discovered three Twitter accounts embodying at least some of the spirit of three Packers legends: team founder and coach Curly Lambeau, Hall of Fame quarterback Arnie Herber and the man who revolutionized the wide receiver position, Don Hutson.
They tend to play a bit into character, with more spunk than perhaps they really were in life, but all seemingly for the sake of entertainment.
Here's a sampling of their tamer tweets (note: some of their tweets discuss some mature subjects):
For my very 1st tweet, I'm just gonna say it man. Lombardi only has 5 titles, I have 6 titles. Vince was overrated. I'm so far out man!— GroovyCurlyLambeau (@GroovyCurly) July 15, 2013
