Dreaming of Lambeau...

All this Packers talk is getting me so excited for the first game!! Just under TWO MONTHS until the first Green Bay Packers preseason game!!!

My first game was a preseason game three years ago when I found really cheap Green Bay Packers Tickets...and since then...I've had Lambeau Field fever, on top of my ongoing case of Packers fever. Going to Green Bay now, for me, is a little bit like going home!!

I'll never forget the first time I saw the field. I'd seen it a million times on television and I had studied the Lambeau Field seating chart religiously--so I was expecting this enormous stadium. I couldn't believe how small and intimate it was. The larger than life icons taking the field suddenly looked life-size. I felt like I was at a local high school game. And, no matter where you sit you are so close to the action. I've sat 5 rows up and 49 rows up, and both times I was completely entranced by the game.

While you can count on having a good time at thing you cannot count on is the weather. I've been to a preseason game in 90 degree temperatures. Then, months later, I'll be sitting in the same stadium bundled up in zillions of layers, gloves, hats and big boots--barely able to lift my arms beneath all my attire to cheer on the green and gold.

But, soon you learn the temperature doesn't matter. It's all about watching good football and having a good time with your friends, and the friends you make while you're there. There's nothing like the camaraderie at Lambeau. With every good play and every touchdown--there are plenty of high fives, hugs, chest butts to go around. Chances are you will embrace the stranger sitting next to you on a number of occasions.

There's no place like Lambeau!!!
