Go - PACK - Go

This last weekend I had the chance to go to Lambeau Field to the NFC Championship game between the Packers and the Giants. If you don't know this is quite a privilege. So I jumped at the opportunity. The last time I had the chance to attend a Packer game was when I was seventeen years old and a senior in High School.

Outside Lambeau Field ...0nly -15.

There is so much I could share about the weekend I will try to just point out a few interesting things.
3. -24 below winchill
4. Lambeau Field - AMAZING NFL HISTORY
5. Most people in the WI would have sold a kidney to attend.
The flag for the national anthem..pretty cool.

In the end the Packers lost in OT. But I do have to say I have never been to a more entertaining, suspense filled, and emotional...oh wait FREEZING... game in my life.

Question: How do I know when it is -24 below at a football game.
1. Most everyone is sober(abnormal for a packer game) because liquid freezes 2-3 minutes after opening it.
2. Frozen snot is the latest fashion.
3. Shopping carts every 10 yards in the concourse filled with free feet and hand warmers.
4. Everyone is wearing hunting clothes..even those who have heated box seats.
5. NO ONE LEAVES THE BATHROOMS DURING HALF TIME BECAUSE THE ARE HEATED! I am not kidding. 400 people in a 30x30 room and 2 people are actually using the urinal.

Here is a video of the end of the national anthem. A jet flew over right at the end and about made me fill my pants. I would have had more pics and video but my camera froze up after the game started. I could not take any more pictures. I tried putting the battery in a warm spot but that was to painfully cold.
