Cheesehead Nation Returning August 1st

Several people have written in asking when Cheesehead TV, Packers Lounge and Railbird Central would be returning with new installments of Cheesehead Nation. I'm pleased to inform our readers that Cheesehead Nation will make its live return on the evening of August 1st, after the Packers have held their very first training camp practice, and we'll be joined by none other than the play by play voice of the Packer Radio Network, Wayne Larrivee.

We'll recap the events of the offseason, take a look at all the position groups, including all the intriguing camp battles, and of course, break down any and all news that comes out of the first day of training camp. So clear your schedule for the evening of Saturday, August 1st and kick off the 2009 campagin with Cheesehead Nation.

Wayne Larrivee.
Now he's a solid PackFan. He's biased as hell & I love it.

I thought Larrivee & McCarren would have trouble replacing legends Irwin & Max but they haven't missed a beat.

I've muted my TV for years & listened to their radio broadcast instead. It only takes until the 3rd or 4th game of the season to adjust to the 2-3 second delay. AR throws a TD pass on the radio & he still has the ball on TV. It's even more difficult after a few beers.

I have often thought about this while watching the nationally televised Mets games: why don't radio stations make their broadcast sync up with the television delay? I really can't handle the delay, so I am always forced to listen to the national guys. It just seems like a simple thing to do that would generate more listeners. I know I would like to listen to the Packers announcers while watching the game on TV.

Counter to the anticipated argument that some fans listen to the game on the radio while in the station: 1) Are radio stations really concerned with a handful of fans that still do this? and 2) Then broadcast on different channels with the different delays. I am sure whoever owns the station broadcasting the game has some crappy sister station that could use the ratings boost of having the game broadcast on their station.

WoodyG, you think Larrivee is biased? Not even close. You have obviously never listened to Paul Allen do Vikings games...it's stomach-turning.

Franklin - I want the radio guys to be biased. It's the whole idea. But you're right about Paul Allen - the worst is watching NFL Replay from last year's opening game when the Vikes score a TD on a fourth down - you'd think they just won the Super Bowl. (Of course, no one in Minnesota knows what that feels like, so it probably feels appropriate to him... ;) )

WL? Very nice and congradulations.

Bill Michaels would be a steal as well. That guys sorts through a lot of crappy calls after games. I always value his insights.

Aaron, I agree about wanting the local radio personalities to be biased, but Paul Allen goes overboard, almost to the point of being a parody. I just wanted to clarify that there are differing levels of bias and WL is nowhere near biased. Allen is a flat-out joker.

They never will know either. I take immense comfort in that.

Back to topic: Congrats on getting Larrivee, I love him. I could listen to that guy order McDonald's and be happy.
