Travis Jervey 44yd TD

I've been waiting to lay this one down on a hot summer's day. Happy Sunday Packer Fans. The first Packers' player to make the Pro Bowl for his play on kick coverage. Travis Jervey, as Packer Fans we salute you. :)

Travis Jervey...Two things I remember about him. Having god gifted speed and getting his butt chewed by Mike Holmgren on the sidelines every time he screwed up.

Great story about Travis: He's an NFL player with the best health and dental insurance you could ask for. He has these braces put on his teeth, and he decides he can't stand them..

So what does he do?

He and his girlfriend drive to the nearest fleet farm (Or was it Farm'n'Fleet?), buy a pair of pliers, go back to the house and, yup, you guessed it, pulled the damn braces off his teeth by hand, one by one.

Dude was nuts, and that's what made him such a terror on special teams. Perhaps the best special teamer overall in Packers history.. Although Desmond Howard would argue that :)

Tracy White would disagree.

Tracy White is a great special Teamer.. But Jervey was an absolute wildman. On another level, IMO.

Having met both Travis and his girlfriend, that story does not surprise me. At. All.

I think I read an article in SI once about how crazy Jervey was. Something about him living with maybe Lashon Johnson (might have been someone else) and the two of them getting in trouble with the coaching staff for having a live cougar or tiger or something in their condo.

Man - I gotta find that article.

Anyone else remember a story like this?

HOLY SHIT - I FOUND IT...

here's the section i was talking about...

*While his assistants focus on the game plan, Holmgren has a disciplinary chore to attend to. He has heard that his two frisky-pup running backs, second-year man LeShon Johnson and rookie Travis Jervey, are about to get into more trouble. The two share a house out in the Wisconsin sticks, and they have already been cited by the state's Department of Natural Resources for having illegal deer snares in the backyard. That prompted a $200 fine for each player from the DNR. Just last week, while building a fire in his fireplace, Jervey had poured gasoline on the kindling and then struck a match. The fumes and the gas exploded, igniting Jervey. He rolled around on the floor, snuffing out flames that singed his eyebrows and eyelashes and the hair on his arms and legs.

And now, Holmgren has been informed by some other players, Jervey and Johnson have ordered a lion from a Texas wildlife distributor. "Just a little one," Johnson says. "And he's had his claws taken out, and his canines. He can't hurt you."

Jervey and Johnson paid $1,000 for the lion, but it hasn't been delivered yet. That's good. "You can't buy a lion," Holmgren says. "No lion." The order is canceled.

Having dismissed the two young players, Holmgren, a patient, genial sort, says, "There's a lot involved in coaching a football team, you know?"

"Maybe we'll get something else," Jervey says after his session with Holmgren. "I think I'd like a tiger."*

AWESOME!

I wonder if he still has that aggressive lion named nala.
