Max McGee former Packer and Packer broadcaster is dead. Apparently, he was cleaning his gutters & roof and fell off from his roof. I will miss him and have missed his and Jim's presence from Packer radio since they left.

Max McGee holds the distinction of scoring the first touchdown in the first Superbowl and the story as I recall was he did not expect to get any game time so snuck out of the hotel after curfew & bed check. He went out and partied it up. He was on the sidelines nursing a hangover when Vince Lombardi yelled MAX! and Max went out and played, and played well.

Of late Max's only presence in Packer Nation was as a spokesman for various products and services, still he will be missed.
