Jerry Kramer was speaking at Engman-Taylor in Menomonee Falls, as a hall of famer in waiting.
"I'm still surprised Lance...it's more than I expected."
The Packers guard spent more than half his life waiting for the call to the hall.
Kramer said, “Well, it was difficult at times, because I got angry. Frustrated. And it got embarrassing."
Finally, Jerry can't thank the Green and Gold Nation, who wrote relentlessly to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,” he said.
