SHEBOYGAN FALLS - While tuning up his golf game, former Green Bay Packer Dave Robinson's mind wasn't on a golf club, but a red pen.
"I'm trying to get my speech down, they wanted it about 10-15 minutes tops. My first draft was 45 minutes long," said Robinson. "But I talk a lot."
Robinson took part in the Packers annual Hall of Fame golf outing at The Bull in Sheboygan Falls on Monday. His speech is for his upcoming induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
"I enjoy getting back with these guys anytime," said Robinson. "(This)is a little special, with the Hall of Fame coming up this year, it's a once in a lifetime thing. Anytime I get together with Packers, young or old, I have a good time."
Robinson says he got some gentle ribbing from the fellow Packers in attendance, but it was all "out of love." Those who played on those Lombardi-era teams with Robinson are thrilled he's headed for the Hall.
"I'm very happy for him, he's a wonderful football player," said former Packers offensive lineman Jerry Kramer. "That left side, you think of Davis, Robinson and Adderley; it doesn't get any better than that."
The 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled for Aug. 3 in Canton, Ohio. Robinson will become the 27th former Packer to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and the first since Reggie White was enshrined in 2006.
