If you know me you know I’m a Packers fan; heck I proposed at Lambeau Field. I’m also on that gigantic wait list for season tickets; maybe my grandkids’ grandkids will see them. Anyway, Jes and I were talking this afternoon about the home opener tomorrow and how it is the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers vs the champion before them New Orleans Saints. Jes then mentioned how awesome it would be to go to that game and how it’d be even cooler if we “just drove down right now” to go it. Well I don’t need much convincing when something like that gets brought up; I hopped online, found some tickets and then we had to make the decision. Who goes? Considering someone is here (who hasn’t been announced on the site yet but has on my Facebook Fan Page – you should join if you haven’t) Jes has to stay behind; so I called her dad up and he jumped at the chance as well. So tomorrow morning, I’m making the drive to Green Bay to watch the game; I’ve had chills and can’t sit still from the excitement since hitting the purchase button.
Above is a shot from the start of the game we were at last year; I climbed all the way to the top of the stands to get a full view of the field. Electric.
Below is Clay Matthews giving a little wave; I’ll see you tomorrow Clay!
