Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for August 4, 2014

Football is back, both in Green Bay and for the NFL as a whole.

As the Green Bay Packers resume practice this evening at 5:30 PM Central time, this seems an appropriate time to look back at the events of the weekend. Specifically, for the Packers that was the team's Family Night, while around the NFL as a whole the big event was the Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction ceremony and the Hall of Fame Game.

Of course, whenever the Hall and the Packers are mentioned, Jerry Kramer's name deserves to be brought up as well. Therefore, in addition to our recaps from Family Night, we find that SB Nation has taken a close look at Alicia Kramer's efforts to get her father enshrined in Canton.

Check out that and more in today's curds.

The oversight of Jerry Kramer is so bad that Rodger Goodell actually once asked Jerry Kramer why he never attended the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, thinking that Kramer was already in.

Football returned on Sunday night with the Hall of Fame Game between the Giants and Bills; naturally, Manningface returned along with it.
