Some trivia….I was just watching the Super Bowl ads on line and see that actor Willem Dafoe is in the Mercedes-Benz ad. I grew up with him – Willem is from Appleton (or as the staff would tease me, ‘isn’t everyone from Appleton?’) His Father was one of the few family doctors in town and Willem, who I have not see in years, was just about the nicest kid in town. And if he was not the nicest, then it was one of his siblings.
And while I am bragging…we have had other Super Bowl stars from Appleton (and this will test your Super Bowl trivia knowledge) — do you know who Rocky Bleier is? He went to my high school but graduated many years ahead of me – he is a legend at my high school.
