Last year, tight end Jermichael Finley was a disliked man in Wisconsin.
From complaining about his role to whining about his lack of targets from quarterback Aaron Rodgers to playing like complete crap, Finley was an odd man out.
How quickly things change.
Now after a much improved attitude and impressive results through training camp and the preseason, Finley looks like the all-pro tight end many expected him to be. He’s in such good graces, he was recently asked to throw out the first pitch at a Milwaukee Brewers game. So that’s what he did – well – I guess if you can call it a throw.
Finely walked to the mound proudly and even channeled his inner pitcher, getting set up on the mound, ready to fire in a seed to the catcher.
What happened was nothing like he or anybody expected though.
Finley bombed the ball right into the grass, as if he was just spiking a football for a touchdown. The ball went speeding past everybody after skipping like a mini scud through the turf.
