Ah, the middle of June. It's a time for us Packers fans to dig and scrape for every last bit of news on our team that we can find. This weekend, the big event involving the team was Jordy Nelson's charity softball game, which gave more than 40 Packers an opportunity to show off their skills on the diamond instead of the gridiron.

Tight end Richard Rodgers won the Home Run Derby and the defense "won" the game 29-19. If you're wondering why I used quotes there, hit the first curd below and read on to find out.

This week, the Packers open up mandatory minicamp, as the players will take the field for practice on Tuesday. Click here for the full offseason schedule, and enjoy your Monday.
