Arizona Receiver Will Be Mayor Guest at Packers Game

"Of course, he's my favorite non-Packers player," Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt said...

Schmitt's invitation took Poole by surprise.

"I heard that the fans in Green Bay were quite some fans, but I didn't expect this," he said in a telephone interview Monday with the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

He wasn't even thinking about the Packers when he made his catch at the end of the game.

"I was just trying to get a victory for the team because we've been down," Poole said.

Schmitt also will give Poole a key to the city.
