My dad, brother, The Husband and I set off around 11am and before we knew it, we were in Green Bay. The last time I was at a Packer game it was freezing cold and the seats and the ground were covered in an inch of ice. They don't call Lambeau Field the Frozen Tundra for nothing! Today, on the other hand was practically tropical in comparison (high 30's-low 40's).
After parking the car, we joined the gigantic party that surrounds the stadium. We stopped at an outdoor bar, grabbed a couple of beers, enjoyed some live music (good cover of Jesse's Girl, bad cover of Livin' On A Prayer) and people-watched. Packer fans really do go all out!
Before long, it was time to head inside.

|Your Green Bay Packers!|
By half time, it was pretty obvious what the end result was going to be.
Dad wasn't the happiest guy in the place, but he was still having a good time - despite the good-natured teasing from the people around us.
