This week, The Pip & Dodds Podcast interviewed Wayne Larrivee, who has been the play by play person on the Packer radio broadcast with Larry McCarren for 21 seasons since 1999.  In this segment, we talked to Larrivee about growing up as a Packer fan in Lee, Massachusetts and attending Emerson University in Boston.   Growing up on the border with New York State. Wayne was a Yankee’s and Knicks fan growing up listening to broadcasters Phil Rizzuto and Marv Albert.  His favorite teams were the NY Knicks championship teams of 1970 and 1974 with Walt Frasier, Dave DeBusschere, Bill Bradley and Phil Jackson.  Wayne would later cover Jackson as coach of the Chicago Bulls while doing TV broadcasting from the Chicago Bulls.  Wayne said that Phil Jackson tried to implement the Knicks team concept of sharing the ball with all members of the team rather than depending on just Michael Jordan.
