A Redskins' fan's visit to Green Bay and Lambeau Field

Jump to last reply

This is probably of interest only to NFL fans. Some friends who have a vacation condo in Algoma, WI, near Green Bay, invited us to visit and I said I'd love to see a Packers game at Lambeau Field. As luck would have it, my team, the Washington Redskins, were scheduled to play the Packers in mid-October, so we took the plunge and acquired game tickets.

One of the really fun things, however, was our visit to Lambeau 2 days before the game to visit the Packers Hall of Fame and take a stadium tour. The tour was a blast, primarily because it ends by the group of you running out of the tunnel the Packers use to go on the field, while a recording is played announcing you as the Green Bay Packers with appropriate crowd noise. It was a hoot. And, you don't often get a chance to be on a pro football sideline and really see the field from that perspective.

I don't think there's a bad seat in the house and the fans are nice to opposing team fans. So even though the Skins lost, it was a fun experience. I'd recommend the stadium tour to any NFL fan that finds themselves in the vicinity of Green Bay, even if you don't get to a game.
