Bed Check

This funny story was told by Green Bay Packer’s offensive guard Jerry Kramer. It seemed that his teammates, Paul Hornung and Max McGee, made a habit out of skipping bed check during training camp. One day, as practice was about to end and to their surprise, Head Coach Vince Lombardi announced that these two would be fined $500 each, for missing curfew the night before. Max and Paul had no idea how Lombardi had found out and proceeded to slip out again the next night. As fate would have it, at the end of that day’s practice, Lombardi increased their fine to $1,000 each for missing curfew a second night. With that announcement, Lombardi turned and looked directly at Max and Paul and said, “Gentlemen, the next time you miss curfew you will be fined $1,500 each; and if you two can find anything in Green Bay, Wisconsin, worth $1,500, call me and I will go with you.” That brought the house down with laughter.
