Once we toured Lambeau on Thursday we really wanted to come back on Sunday for the game against the Buffalo Bills. After we packed up our stuff, I took down the tent while Patrick went in search of coffee. He finally found a decent coffee place in Ephraim.
We got to Green Bay around 11am and it was pretty crazy by then. Without tickets to the game, we paid $10 to park in someone's lawn. The area around Lambeau Field is very residential so the people in the area rent out their lawn for parking during football season. I even saw a gas station renting out spaces. Everyone was tailgating and wearing Green and Gold. There weren't many people selling tickets, but we saw someone selling right outside the stadium. We ended up giving him all the cash we had $196 for two tickets in Section 131, Row 41.
Here is Patrick at his first game at Lambeau Field.
The fly over before the game.
The fans were really into the game. Somehow they managed to get the crowd to get the wave to go around the stadium 4 or 5 times.
Here is a picture of the touchdown pass to Donald Driver.
The Vikings were playing the Dolphins during the game, so they would give updates on the score during the game. Every time the fans saw the Vikings and Brett Favre were losing to the Dolphins cheering erupted through out the stadium. Fans were not shy about their dislike of Favre either.
There weren't many Buffalo Bills fans at the game, but I liked this guys hat: a cheese puff.
The Packers easily won the game 34-7 to start the season 2-0.
