Green Bay Packers

The morning was so cool that we had to break out the winter workout gear to keep warm.  With the overcast and light drizzle, running was easy and the distance rolled by.

No trip to Green Bay is complete without a visit to Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers.  The stadium had recently been upgraded and the facility was impressive.  We visited the new Atrium and browsed the shops.  No cheeseheads for us, but we did get some pictures.

Much has been written on the impact of the Packers on this region.  It is sufficient to say the Packer marketing department is world class and the Packer ‘brand’ is everywhere.  We mean EVERYWHERE.  And, the locals are passionate about their team.  Suggestions about moving the team to Los Angeles were not well received.

We returned to the coach and DeeDee joined us when she got off work.  After dinner, we sat around a roaring campfire with Ed, Mary and Ann.  The conversation stretched well into the night and included the Green Bay Packers, of course.
