Robert Trader

Robert is a life-long Packers fan. In the bar rooms of old, Robert may have been called, a troubadour, or bard. Now, most just refer to him as the "Artsy Fartsy Sports Guy," or something along those lines. Having spent the majority of his adult life working and living in the Mid-West (as an actor, singer, songwriter, and even circus ringmaster), he has been an avid follower of all the NFC North teams. Favorite alcoholic beverages include but are not limited to: Beer (stouts, ales, and IPAs among favorites), whiskey (Tullamore Dew is a favorite), Brandy Old Fashioned (sour, Korbel or bust) and on Sunday, a spicy Bloody Mary (as long as the Vodka's not cheap and gross) with a beer chaser!
