Other than the score…Posted: November 10, 2010
…Lambeau Field and the Dallas/GB game was amazing. The whole trip went about as smooth as possible as well. We drove to Appleton, WI which is about 30 miles south of Green Bay since we were not able to find a hotel room in Green Bay at such late notice. The last thing we wanted to worry about was driving to and from the game. We managed to find a sports bar down the street from the hotel which offered a shuttle to and from the game – how perfect. The bus left three hours before the game and took us to the same sports bar in Green Bay. This all sounds peachy, but about the only thing that was brutal during the entire trip was the 45 minute bus ride that ensued with just about everyone needing to go to the bathroom ten minutes into the ride. I did fail to mention that the buses were the big yellow ones…no coach buses for us. I don’t think anyone pissed their pants (at least no one in my group did).
Once we were near the stadium and out of the bus, it was essentially 70,000 people eating, drinking, and yelling at the top of their lungs. I don’t think I could have asked for anything better. The atmosphere was insane. I went in rooting for the Cowboys, obviously, but knew deep down it wasn’t likely they’d win. Regardless, I was THAT guy in the stands yelling when the ‘Boys scored to make it 28-7 thinking we were back into the ballgame. The final score didn’t quite rile me up as much as usual (their 1-6 record coming in probably had something to do with it). I was there to experience Lambeau, win or loss. And that is exactly what I did.
I also failed to mention the score was 45-7, if you didn’t know.
Good thing the beer was cold.
