Green Bay Packers Tickets Have Arrived!

I have heard from a few (lucky) pals that the Green Bay Packers Season tickets have arrived in the mail! A very exciting time for folks to divide up the games amongst family members, friends etc...but more often it appears to be a nice opportunity to make a few dollars. Packers season ticket holders can post their tickets on ebay,, and sell them directly to one of the various ticket brokers around. All potential outlets will prove to be a profitable move for the lucky, lucky season ticket holder.

This upcoming season for the Packers really is solid start to finish as far as scheduling goes. Most games are noon starts, with the exception of the Packers Bears game on a Sunday night. This season, Packers fans don't have to weigh time with the family on New Years Eve vs a Packers game at Lambeau Field.

The other thing I have found is that Green Bay Packers tickets make a great gift. I know if I opened a box with two tickets to see Brett Favre and the boys at the frozen tundra, I would be PRETTY happy!

Trip to Lambeau listed #53 on list

Jim Caple, a writer from LA TV Station ABC7 has comprised a lengthy list of "the 101 Things All Sports Fans Must Experience Before They Die". Which is kind of a fun read. I of course went looking immediately to see where the Green Bay Packers experience at Lambeau Field ranked on the list.

According to Caple, who live in a town WITHOUT a NFL team, a trip to Lambeau is #53.

He writes, "Green Bay Packers game in the snow (December, Green Bay). Lambeau Field is one of the few NFL stadiums with history and character, and the best time to enjoy the stadium's true flavor is in the depth of winter when the snow is falling, the mercury has plunged to single digits and your body is so numb it feels like you were blindsided by Reggie White."

Green Bay Packers to Practice at Old City Stadium

As part of a 50th Anniversary for Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers will hold a practice at their original field, City Stadium on July 31, 2007 at 6:30p. The practice is a free event, however donations are welcome which will benefit the Green Bay Children's Museum. From 1924 to 1956, the Green Bay Packers played at City Stadium and won six championships there. Now the field is used by Green Bay East High School.

Interest is always high for anything-Packers-related in Green Bay, but it seems like I can begin to feel the anticipation for the upcoming season begin to grow. We have hit the mid-season mark with the All Star Game in MLB, and that just highlights to me and other sports-fans that the start of the NFL season is right around the corner.
