My #66 Ray Nitschke Jersey was a Birthday Gift from my husband last September to replace my #4 Jersey. There is NOTHING like going to a game at Lambeau. BTW, a note to other team’s fans - you are welcome at Lambeau and you will be treated like our guest. No sympathy when we beat you.
The 6 seats in front of our 6 seats are always filled with the opponent’s fans and they are always amazed how much fun they have with us.
This sums up “flyover” country to the snobby elites on the left and right coasts. We are middle America, proud, hard working and loyal and polite. We love our Packers and win or lose we’re loyal Packer Backers. Always note the stands are always filled at the end of each game. No leaving at half time. No way!!
I’ve only gotten to see one Packer game in person since they left Milwaukee. We sold a bunch of scrap to a dealer, and he forgot to pay us. When he sent our check, he enclosed 4 tickets to Lambeau as an apology — Box seats right in front of the glass enclosed area. This was several years ago. What an experience. We are still talking about it.
It was a first class day all around. We had a parking ticket right in the tailgate area. We didn’t bring our own food, but made reservations at Curley’s which offered great food at a very good price We took old friends. One of them was in a motorized scooter. We went up to the stands in the elevator, and the ushers found a place to park her scooter.
6 seats in front of us were occupied by young men - 19-24. This was a couple of years after Favre left, and they were all wearing #4 jerseys in various colors. Evveryone was in good spirits and we all had a great time.
