December 16, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — For Dan Prutznal, it can be tough being a Green Bay Packers fan in Steelers Country.

“Last week, someone brought in a copy of Sports Illustrated, and in the cafeteria, where I eat lunch with the kids, I held it up,” showing a piece about the Packers, he said. “The kids were just hollering: ‘Boo, Packers,’ ‘I don’t like the Packers.’ Every time they see me ... it’s all in good fun.”
