My Life with the Green and Gold is a book by sportscaster Jessie Garcia who has interviewed Green Bay Packers athletes and coaches for twenty years. In her book, she brings fans to the sidelines at Lambeau Field, inside the locker room, aboard the Packers bus, and into the host's chair at The Mike McCarthy Show. Garcia reported on Wisconsin's beloved Green Bay Packers during the Holmgren, Rhodes, Sherman, and McCarthy years. She's been a Packers sideline reporter for preseason games and covered the team during its Super Bowl showdowns against the Patriots, Broncos, and Steelers. She's traveled with the team to Tokyo and the White House and to schools and retirement homes, where the gridiron heroes interacted with their fans. She's visited the hometowns of players and coaches, she's met their proud parents and their pets. Garcia's expertise is capturing behind-the-scenes, human-interest stories. In My Life with the Green & Gold, she shares a personal and humorous insider's look at many Wisconsin sports heroes from the perspective of a female sports journalist.
