My First Green Bay Packer Lambeau Field Experience

Welcome to all the SITSa's who are dropping by today. I (we) Sandi and I hope that you have a blast reading our posts. I (we) try to comment on everybody that visits but sometimes I (we) get backed up and can't. BUT I (we) eventually get caught up, so hang in there!!!!!!
Thanks again!
Jennifer and Sandi




It's Camp Candid Carrie's Wisconsin weekend!!! This should be fun because I'm not even FROM Wisconsin. I'm from Minnesota. But I love Wisconsin, my boyfriend use to live there, I've traveled through the state numerous times on my way to Florida, Kentucky, Indiana, Chicago and California. Oh wait that's the other way.

Anyway, I'm no expert on Wisconsin. Sorry about that. But what I am an expert on is having a great time and I like WI cheese & football!!!!!! My boyfriend asked me if I wanted to go to Green Bay, WI and attend a Packer game. I replied "HECK YES"!! I love football. Do I love the Packers? Ummmm I'll plead the fifth. My sister, nephew, brother-in-law are HUGE packer fans though I think that counts! No, I'm not even a Vikings fan. I'M A COLTS FAN.... GO PEYTON MANNING!! Okay sorry, back to my Green Bay Packer game.

I can tell you Wisconsin has A LOT of dead deer along the highway. That's gross. We arrived late Friday night and stayed at a friends house. We bar hopped with some of Larry's great friends. That's Larry and I far right.



and then hit the hay.

SATURDAY: Larry played tour guide all day. Green Bay is a lovely town.
Shot some pool too! Had to work that into the mix. We love to shoot pool!
Introduced Larry and his friend to sushi at a Japanese restaurant and
then we called it a day. We had a big day tomorrow.

SUNDAY: TIME TO GET UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Places to go, people to see, beer to drink and a Green Bay Packer game to attend at Lambeau Field.

HAD to go to the Stadium View Bar where all the fun and action was. This is
just across the street from Lambeau Field.




Found another one of Larry's buddies tailgating at the stadium. There's Lambeau in the background. See, just over Kurt's shoulder there!! Hi Larry!!




Making our way to the door.. Sure thanks, we'll have another beer!
Green Bay Packer fans are so nice!!!!!!!!!



We made it!! Here's looking back at those still in line.. hehehehe suckas




THERE'S BRETT FAVRE!! Wave!! Because it's the last time you'll see him there. He's coming over to the Vikings, did you know that? You heard it here first folks!
That's EXACTLY how rumors get started, from me starting them!

Darn lucky Jets.




There's Larry and I leaving the game. Headin back to Minnesota!

THANKS WISCONSIN I HAD A BLAST!!!




Thanks Camp Candid Carrie for sharing my Wisconsin blog with your campers!

Fabulous job, excellant idea to take us tailgating with you. I am so sorry that B.F. didn't make it to the Vikings, but he did get that fancy schmancy key chain from the Mayor of New York. Too bad all the cars that the Green Bay auto dealers gave him had to stay in Wisconsin :(

Thanks for doing this, Jen! Much appreciated.

Susie said...

You can't have a tour of Wisconsin without talking about the Packers and tailgating:-) Great job:-)

Anne said...

GO GIANTS!!! Okay, now that I've gotten that out of my system...

How fun! I would love to go to a game in Green Bay! I saw the Packers play Monday Night Football in Jacksonville a few years ago and it was great - Packers fans are so much fun!

Kim said...

Fun! I love football! It's so much better live than it is on tv, it's all in the atmosphere.

Tanielle said...

How fun to attend a FB game! Never been to that part of the country!

Mrs. Jelly Belly said...

Looks like so much fun - well, except for the dead deer on the highway thing. :)

I'm not a huge sports fan...but hey....if that's your thing...

Becky said...

Allison D said...

There is NOTHING like going to a football game. The energy is amazing and totally worth any beer some drunk person might spill on you (lol).

sandy said...

My son has been a Packers fan since he was about 2 years old! He would be in heaven!

cat said...

Greetings from South Africa.

Creative Junkie said...

My husband is a Bills fan and I've tailgated more than I'd like to remember in Buffalo.

Glad you had a great time!

Pam said...

Not a football fan myself. But, it looks like you all had a great day!

James' Mommy said...

Your first Experience was better than mine! We went thinking we could buy tickets at the game and it was completely sold out! We spent the entire game in the Stadium View Bar watching it on TV.

P.S. I have met Payton.

Elizabeth said...

What a neat story! Football games really can be a lot of fun. Personally, I don't enjoy watching them on TV at all, but going in person is a whole different experience.

PS - You look so cold!!!

I am so jealous. Veggie Mom will tell you she is the biggest Packers fan (and that may be) BUT I am older so I have been a fan longer. GO PACKERS!! (Well, next season)

I don't think I've experienced a tailgate party... until now - thanks!

gretsky22 said...

Hi from Minneapolis! I've heard talk now that BF really might come to the Vikes! That would be cool.

Cyn said...

Anyhow, I'm wondering why you weren't wearing a piece of cheese on your head. THAT would have made the trip complete.

LOLOLOL...

Charmaine said...

How fun! I love sporting events!

Mandy said...

This Steeler fan actually enjoyed your Packer post. Surprised? :)

So much fun! Happy SITS day!

Michelle said...

I've never been to Lambeau but I've always wanted to go. How cool to have the fun of being there - when it was decent weather even :) and hey, it sounds like Favre may end up with the Vikings this year!
