Headed to the hallowed ground.

Well, a few football buddies and I will be headed up to “God’s Country.”

The place? The team?

How about the most sacred turf in all the land.
The home of the most storied franchise in all of professional football.
One of the birthplaces of the NFL.
Where 12 Championships have come home.
Only team to win three straight titles (having done it twice).
The site of John Madden’s lovefest (not really).

                                             I’m talking about this place.

I have to say…if you have never been to Lambeau Field, you have never seen football like it was meant to be. 
Of course, I’m extremely biased…having grown up minutes from the hallowed grounds. 
I usually attend 3-4 games a season.  Only 2 this season šŸ˜„

I have attended probably 50 games at Lambeau over the years…it never gets old.
Words cannot explain how it feels to walk into Lambeau Field.
It’s probably like walking into old Yankee Stadium or Fenway Park. 
The history, the smells, the fans…it’s a place you most definitely have to see before you die.  Football fan or not.  Packers fan or not.

It has been a disappointing season for my Pack. 
A 5-10 record going in to this must-win game against the winless Lions.
Yeah, I said must-win.
How would you like playing under that kind of pressure? 

The way I look at it-either way, I’m going to witness history.
The Packers are either going to send the Lions to the first 0-16 season in history
OR
the Packers will go down as the team that prevented the Lions from finishing as the only 0-16 team in history.

I shall blog about my latest Lambeau trek upon my return.
Until then…only 50 days until pitchers and catchers report!!

    I know just what you mean, it kind of a pain in the ash to park and get to your seat at Mile High stadium, but once your inside and the fans start stomping up and down in their seats, the whole stadium gets rocking. There is nothing like it in the world..Have fun Happy…D
