GREEN BAY - "I trusted him. And that's the thing that probably hurts the most," Aaron Rodgers reflected in the Packers locker room on Friday.
Rodgers trusted his good friend Ryan Braun when Braun told him there was no truth to the accusations of performance enhancing drugs.
"It doesn't feel great being lied to like that. I'm disappointed about the way it all went down," Rodgers said.
Braun's now suspended from the Brewers for the rest of 2013 for doping.
In the past, Rodgers strongly backed Braun's claims to innocence.
But in the locker room after today's first day of Packers training camp, he might be regretting that.
"In hindsight, a more measured approach next time would obviously be the better course of action," Rodgers said.
While baseball and the Ryan Braun situation by definition had to be the top topic for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the locker room Friday, there was also football, as the Packers took to the field for the first time with a full compliment of rookies on the roster.
"Me and Eddie have a lot of vets as a part of this running back crew that we can learn from and grow from," said rookie running back Johnathan Franklin, a UCLA product.
Franklin was one of two running backs taken by Green Bay in the first four rounds of the draft.
He joins Alabama rookie back Eddie Lacy on the roster.
"We're all good backs. Everybody's going out there and giving it their best shot. At the end of the day, it's the coaches' decision," Lacy said.
Coach Mike McCarthy singled out rookie cornerback Micah Hyde as having a great opening day on the field.
"It's a compliment, but it's day one. We didn't have any defense, any offense, just have to go and try to compete. Tomorrow's not going to mean anything with what happened day one," Hyde said.
Saturday marks Day Two of camp - with just 13 to go before the preseason opener.
WASHINGTON - UPDATE: 3-24-17, 4:00pm: Ryan bemoans collapse of health care bill:
Speaker Paul Ryan says the collapse of the House Republican health care bill means former President Barack Obama's health care law will be around for the foreseeable future.
The Wisconsin Republican addressed reporters minutes after GOP leaders abruptly shelved the legislation, averted likely defeat for the bill. But it still dealt a damaging setback to President Donald Trump, Ryan and an entire party that has long said it wants to annul Obama's statute.
MARATHON COUNTY - The suspect in a Wisconsin shooting spree that left four people dead has been identified, and court records show one of the victims was his wife's divorce lawyer.
A person close to the investigation identified the suspect Friday as 45-year old Nengmy Vang. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak ahead of authorities officially identifying Vang.
ST. GERMAIN - A school bus doesn't feature a lot of amenities. Seats, windows, and that's about it. But a company out of St. Germain thinks buses, and other big vehicles, make the perfect kitchens.
Caged Crow Fabrication is owned by Josh Romaker. He moved to the Northwoods about three years ago. Around the same time a woman in Madison approached him to help refurbish an old camper. He decided to make it into a food truck instead.
"We took on the challenge and that first build was featured on US Today and some magazines and our phone just started ringing. We've got them in Denver, Salt Lake City, New Jersey," said Romaker.
That was just the beginning for Romaker's company, Caged Crow Fabrication in St. Germain. They now specialize in food trucks of all kinds.
"If a customer wants a food truck that looks like a barn or a steam train or a school bus conversion, we really stick to the unique food truck builds," said Romaker.
The 1982 bus that Caged Crow Fabrication is working on now will be complete in a little over a month. The team made up of just a few workers has one rule- they never build the same thing twice. And they take their time.
"We have a sign on the wall here that says 'quality over quantity'. I think our reputation right now is really based on the attention to detail and I think we want to keep that up," said Romaker.
