Golden Yakkie

The second-annual Pack Yak "Golden Yakkie" has been awarded to Donald Driver of the Green Bay Packers.

Some of our listeners wondered what exactly this award looks like. Well, here it is, and it will be headed to Double D soon.

I for one sure hope Donald is still in green and gold next season, but at this time it seems unlikely.

It's sad but true, and how pro sports work now. It's really a business first.

Donald is a first-class guy and as I said on the PhilCast on Tuesday, probably the second-nicest sports figure I have ever met, behind only the great Bart Starr.

Last season Aaron Rodgers won the first-ever Yakkie, and it was delivered in person to A-Rod. But since the team unexpectedly lost and has already cleared out of Green Bay we'll have to mail Donald the coveted award made by SuperFan Judy!
