The day started out foggy in Green Bay, WI and while the sun eventually came out, the fog seemed to linger on Lambeau Field a bit longer. We had our Green Bay Packers tickets in section 126, just about the 12 yard line at Lambeau. The seats were good and the fans, both Packer and Eagles fans, were pretty fun. There were a few Lambeau First-Timers, which always puts a smile on my face.
The Green Bay Packers got lucky on Sunday winning by a narrow margin against the Philadelphia Eagles. Packers fans started off with an odd emergency announcement at Lambeau, which quickly was ignored by fans (kind of makes ya worried if there was a need for evacuation) and then dismissed by the announcer. Al Harris, who was in on the first special teams' play of the season for the Green Bay Packers, went out on a cart leaving fans thinking he was out for the season! Good Lord! Thankfully, Harris came back in and contributed to the Packers win with just one working arm.
Favre was clearly upset with his receiving core, who dropped some very catch able passes. Although, I will have to add, from the stands it looked like either Favre was off the mark, or someone ran the wrong route.
Nevertheless, the Packers won and sit 1-0 on the 2007 NFL season. The Chicago Bears lost to the San Diego Chargers. The news came today that Eli Manning would be out for a month, making this upcoming game for the Packers at Giants a bit more palatable.
Here's to you Packers Kicker Mason Crosby! Thanks for the win!!! GO PACKERS!!!!!
