I'm done with the Walker argument. Hopefully EVERYBODY will learn from it. See, I didn't even mention TT :oops: .

Anyway....you guys can't get me p1ssed today because I just secured my tickets and hotel room for the Dec 21 game against the queens. The one that could POSSIBLY be Brett's last home game (but hopefully not). Me, my wife and my son will drive out there and pick up my daughter from college on the way and spend 3 great days in Green Bay.

My wish is that Brett breaks Marino's TD record that day. A 63 yard TD to Driver after Darren Sharper gets over to help out too late! The only other game I've seen at Lambeau pitted Favre against Marino. Ironic....ain't it?

Depack, we are just testing out that claim of not being able to piss you off. That kind of sounds like a triple dog dare to me!

Enjoy the trip. Mrs. Dakota T and I are building a house this fall, I might not even get to watch the Packer games. Nah scratch that.

Dakota...I will excuse the deviation you displayed towards the guidelines in the "Dare Ettiquette Manual".....this time.......completely skipping over "double dog dare"....tsk, tsk.

Your punishment....."Apply moist tongue to a cold flag pole"

Court is adjourned!!

God, I love that movie...probably could not be made today with the child abuse (Schwartz getting beaten by Mom) or the racial element fa ra ra ra rah, ra ra ra raaaaaaah). A classic!!

Gotta love a woman who can handle a hammer :lol:


Must watch all games though.....even if your house is delayed a couple months. Good luck!

I've been to both SB's in New Orleans and San Diego, traveled to Tampa twice, regular season games in NO, Atlanta, and, way back when they split games with Milwaukee.

I have never been to Lambeau.

I have five things I want to do before I go.

In no particular order:

The Masters (I have loved watching it on TV.)
Indy
Kentucky Derby
British Open ( I'm irish and my mom was planning a trip when she was diagnosed with cancer and never made it). I want to go to the Open and then Ireland.
Lambeau field to a Packers game. Would love it to be against the Bears.

God willing I will get to these.

Congrats Depack. I hope we thump their ***.

my hubby (bob) goes to the indy 500 every year! his buddy's dad has had tickets for nearly 47 years & eventually, bob was asked to go along. he's been going for several years now. they take my mom's motorhome & stay right near the speedway. it's the big "guy weekend"!!

i'm also sorry about your mom. i just lost my dad to cancer nearly 7 months ago - it's tough man.

Lambeau is pretty cool. I have been to 3 Bear v Packer games. I am going again this year. It is a pretty good time, but make sure that you have good pre game plans.

Man DePack, that is some plan! I would LOVE to watch Favre's last game, be able to tell my kid the way he went out with a bang (heres hoping he does :cheers: ). Be sure to take lots of pics so you can post them here! :D (I'm serious, I'll hound you until you do DePack :p )

Sorry to hear about your mother warhawk, and your father 4packgirl. I know how hard it is too loose family. I am no good in dealing with death's, but it is something to which me must all sucumb.

YOU'RE MARRIED!!?? that statement just ruined the day for half the guys on here. just kidding. my dad's name is steve but my mom ALWAYS calls him bob, like the saturday night live skit with the super fans(i know, i know. spare me the backlash, please). i was at the game in lambeau in 2004 when we beat the queens, and dad is in the process of securing tickets for the vikings game in minneapolis in november. my fiancee is coming and she is from minnesota. she's a vikings fan. it should be... interesting.

Hey I've only been to Green Bay twice. Once in July for training camp and once in September for a game. It was about 85 degrees both times.

How is the weather in late December. Pretty toasty, I bet. Should I leave the shorts and bathing suit home?

Dude, Lambeau in the cold is out of this world. Went to the 1993 Raiders game where it was recorded as the second coldest game played in Lambeau after the Ice Bowl. What an awesome time.

As the temperatures drop, the fans' enthusiasm rises......aided by beer, of course.

I remember that game. It was before directtv so I used to drive my father in-law and 7 year old daughter into Philly to watch all the games at a bar. Yea I know.....probably not the best idea in the world but she was a fanatic, even at that age. The thing I remember the most was that the Raiders didn't want to be there. Art Shell was the coach and the longer the game went on, the more frozen schnott he had on his mustache :lol:

I think the Pack won something like 28-0!

As I recall, it was Christmas day, or the day after perhaps. Had to wake up and get on the road at 4 am to get back from my folks in time to drive back up to Lambeau and have some proper tailgating.

Yes, the Raiders were looking to get back in the locker room the minute they hit the field.

De- You're making me so jealous. It's my dream. Especially that game. I don't want to just go to Lambeau for a game, but, to go and experience the frozen tundra during December or January against the Vikes(1), or the Bears(2). My only game was 2003 when we played the Chargers out here. Just for this I think I'll have to start another Walker/TT thread!!
Calicheesehead lay there like a slug.... it was his only defense( sorry, had to keep the Christmas story alive)

This is the best thread we have had in a long time. I made it to Lambeau once. It was the Pittsburgh game when Thigpen dropped a sure winning touchdown. We won the division and I got to gloat all the way home (My three friends are Steeler fans).

Bar hopping the night before was a pretty good time as well! The only problem we had was finding a restaurant to eat at after the game. It was Christmas Eve and the whole town shut down. Applebees let us poor bastards in (I think they could smell the desperation) and sat us next to Sean Jones' party. Good times, and the best Christmas I ever spent.
