Jersey Al Bracco


A lifetime Green Bay Packer Fan living in the land of the Giants (and Jets).

Please visit my blog at for everything Green Bay Packers, as well as for a full schedule of Packers Podcasts from some of the best bloggers on the internet.

Currently, I am the Packers Draft Analyst at, one of the better NFL Draft sites on the internet.

In addition to my Packer fan status, I am also a big fan of what we call "soccer" here in the US, "calcio", futbol" or "football" in other parts of the world. I try to be a fan of the MLS, but it's tough, since I really prefer to watch high-quality soccer. Therefore, I try to catch Champions League games, as well as games from various European leagues (mostly Serie A and EPL). In addition, I support my country's National team, which is also difficult at times.

I've always been a closet soccer fan, but only played the "American" sports, as my Dad would say. Of course, my High School didn't even have a soccer team... I was a fan of the NY Cosmos and the great superstars that played there. I went to many a Cosmos game when they were setting attendance records, putting 75,000 fans in the seats for a soccer game. Pele, Beckenbauer, Alberto, Chinaglia, Birkenheimer, I won't name them all. That, of course, is what spoiled me. How could I ever watch just average soccer after that?

    Al, Just checked out your site. Looks great. Some of the regulars on BR were wondering about you. You should promote your site on BR somewhere to generate more traffic. Your content is way better than the typical article on BR.

    Had to crawl out of my cave to weigh in on the Dodgers trade deadline deals - hope you find it worthy of your time.

    Not much of a Packer fan (only because I like my college ball better, no other reason). I have a new reason to root for the Pack now, though. Bulaga is a stud...enjoy him!
