    Just listening to the pre-game show from Milwaukee and they reported the most likely scenario is for the Packers to play at 3:30 on Saturday January 12. The only other option is noon on the 13th.

    I'm hoping for noon on the 13th.
    On the 12th my youngest son has a big swim meet that he would have to miss.
    I have no problem missing a swim meet except that 2 relay teams really depend on him.
    This has become an issue between my wife and I.
    My arguement is that he still will have 100 swim meets but may never get another chance to attend another Packer playoff game.
    If we get the 13th that would eliminate alot of grief for me.

    I will be happy with 3:30 (Green Bay time on the 12th) a it's my birthday (I'll be 47 as will Randy Wright who was born on the same day as me!!!!)and it wil be 9:30PM here in the UK.

    Perfect time for watching the pack win and having a few celebration drinks.

    Bring on Hasselbeck and his predictions again!!!!

    I was a kid when I left Chicago, so I don't remember.

    However, go to a bar in Chicago and when the Packers game is on, ask the guy next to you if he knows what times the Bears' game is on. See what he says.

    I am really hoping for Saturday. It will be less rushed driving home from the game.

    Damn I was hoping to get the game at noon the 12th, I will be flying into Atlanta at noon and then to France at 5:15 from Atlanta so it will really be great for me to arrive at Atlanta at noon watch the game and get to the plane ready to sleep after 10 beers and a Packer win !!!

    Anyway if it is Sunday noon I could see it in Bordeaux, any idea of a bar where they show Football in Bordeaux??

    Thanks for the news, Toddy. I'm going to the game, and the 3:30 Saturday start is perfect for me. I'll be driving down to Green Bay (about 150 miles south of here) with my sister. Our seats are near the west side of the south end zone.

    Damn I was wrong, so far Teddy seems to be right and I seem to be wrong..

    I have already apologized about 1000 times for not waiting enough before bashing Teddy.... Anyway I am happy I was wrong and I can keep apologizing for the next 4-5 years at least.

    Happy New Year. :twisted:

    Oh my god, I was almost going to freak out. Normally I have to work from 7am-4pm on Saturdays, but that Saturday I inexplicably have off.

    This is destiny.

    Greg, I plan on leaving Ishpeming with my sons at 11AM.
    What time are you leaving?
    Our seats are in sec. 128 row 55: 18,19,20,21, sounds like you may be in the same area.
    Maybe we could get together for a beer.

    I don't think the drive will work, because I have to go to Crystal Falls to pick up my sister. I'll probably just drive there on Friday evening, actually, so I can spend some time with her and her family.

    I don't know our seats in terms of section and row and all that. We will probably be tailgating with some of my sister's friends before the game. I will ask her if she knows where we will be (it may be hard to explain), so maybe you could stop by if you have the time.
