I'd like to say thank you to those who have signed the petition. And to those who haven't yet: "What are you waiting for?!?"

So here's the scoop. I kind of hinted at name dropping in my first post, and I think it's now safe to "spill the beans".

I've been working with Alicia Kramer, Jerry Kramer's daughter, on promoting the campaign to induct Jerry into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It's going well.

Alicia has a new website www.jerrykramer4hof.com that is "command central" for getting the movement going. I encourage anyone who loves the Packers, and especially the Lombardi-era Packers, to take a look. There's a lot of great information, some videos and photos.

A link to the petition I created years ago can be found in several spots on the website, so take a look, sign the petition, and pass the website address around.

Thank you.

Years ago, in 2005 to be exact, I created an online petition because I was tired of seeing Jerry Kramer passed over for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Jerry had such a great career and is a model football player and gentleman. I felt I wanted to do _something_ but didn't know what. So, I created an online petition hoping that some people would sign. Maybe one day it would come to the attention of the "right" people.

Signatures were very slow at first. One or two a month. I "checked out" for months and years at a time, only occasionally looking in to see how many signatures there were. Eventually the number of signatures increased to one or two a week. Then more.

From March 2005 through the end of July 2011 there were less than 450 total signatures. Then something happened. Exactly what, I don't know yet. But over the last three months the number of signatures has skyrocketed to 900+. October, especially, has been a very good month.

And things may get better. Yesterday I spoke with someone (no names yet) who has a strong desire to see Jerry Kramer enter the Hall of Fame. If things work out, there could be a strong grass-roots movement to make a push to get Jerry into Canton.

So, I'm asking you. Please consider signing my petition. Also please consider passing the link around and encouraging others to sign it as well. If you use facebook or twitter, use them as well to get the word out. Do you follow Packers players, past or present, on twitter? "@ them" and request a retweet. I sent out some tweets yesterday to current Packers players and Jarius Wynn retweeted the petition URL to his followers.

So here's the petition website. Thank you for considering getting involved.
