What better way to spend next Monday?

Yes, what better way to spend the Monday after the Super Bowl than to head over to the UW-Fox Valley for a lecture on the history of the Timber Rattlers?

I mean you will either be still partying after a Packers win over the Steelers in the Super Bowl, but still…it isn’t often…aside from the 140 games during a season…that you will be able to see Mehring misstate facts, mispronounce names, and generally act like a know-it-all.

Oh? Didn’t I mention? I am giving the lecture at noon in Perry Hall on the UW-Fox Valley Campus.

From the news release:

Menasha, WI – The University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley resumes its stimulating and acclaimed Scholars Series on Monday, February 7, when the campus hosts Chris Mehring, who will be presenting, “The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and Professional Baseball in the Fox Cities.” Mehring’s presentation takes place between noon and 1:00 p.m. in Perry Hall, within UWFox’s new Communications Arts Center.

Mehring has been the radio announcer for the Timber Rattlers since 2000. He is also the author of “Rattler Radio,” a blog, he says, that can tell you more about him than any “official” biography. He worked for the team in corporate sales before moving into his current role as Director of Media Relations and previously held positions with the Green Bay Gamblers, the University of Wisconsin-Superior, the Duluth/Superior Dukes, and a radio station in Sheboygan.


The Scholars Series presentations are free and open to the public, with unreserved seating. For more information about “The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and Professional Baseball in the Fox Cities,” contact Dave Hager, director of University Relations at UWFox.

They also managed to get the best picture that has been taken of me in the last 15 years…which I am not going to share here.  But, click on this link…it must have been the photographer. 

Anyways, the lecture is free. It should be good for a laugh. And you might learn something about how I get over my crippling stage fright every day. Which just got worse because I clicked on that Perry Hall link and…Great Gorman Thomas that place looks huge!

See you Monday.
