Packers fans asking Obama to pardon Fuzzy Thurston
Fuzzy Thurston remains one of the most popular players in Green Bay Packers history and fans are rallying to try to help him.
Those fans are asking President Barack Obama to pardon Thurston, who the IRS claims owes roughly $1.7 million in back taxes. To satisfy a portion of the money Thurston owes, his Super Bowl II ring is scheduled to be auctioned off in August.
According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, a Facebook page “Save Fuzzy Thurston” has been created. The chances of them helping Thurston get his prized ring back seem slim, but you never know.
