    Lovin' it! I arrived in Green Bay around 3:30am Sat. morning. Woke up at 9 ate breakfast & went to Lambeau Field. All I can say is WOW! Took the tour & several times got teary eyed. Even got to walk through the tunnel the players walk through. What an experience! The field was naked. Didn't get to go on the field but was on the sideline. What an experience! Eatin' at Sammy's right now. Totally worth the drive. Monday going to the Packers job fair. GO PACK GO!!!

    I was at Curly's Pub today & saw the Rooks getting off the bus to do whatever they have planned. I figure to workout

    Isn't it fun there? I wish every Packers fan could visit Lambeau Field.

    In 1996, I got mud on my green Packer shoes while at a game. I never washed the mud off. Most has worn off by now but I still hope there might bit some permanently imbedded.

    They say if you love your job you never work a day in your life. I've heard that not only Lambeau Field,Curley's Pub & the surrounding area is totally wild & crazy w/Packer fans & I also believe that is an experience I will relish forever should I get the chance to work for the Packer organization. I've read where fans of other teams totally enjoyed their Lambeau experience. How much more as a Packer fan will enjoy it. Not only would this be a dream come true but an experience I can't even begin to imagine how great it will be. For those who get to live this yearly.......this has to be heaven on earth.

    Visiting Lambeau is one thing a Packer fan will never regret. If at all possible a tour of Lambeau & the Hall of Fame is a must!

    Yes. They said they're going to hire 15-20 security people so just to be safe I put an app in w/Delaware foods who will be in charge of Curly's Pub & whatever else. They said they'd let me know in 2-4 weeks. I also got to meet coach MM. He was headed somewhere but I was able to talk to him for a couple secs. I also got to see the SB ring up close. SWEET!

    That's very cool. I'll bet MM was on his way to watch DD on Dancing With The Stars.

    Probably. He had a piece of luggage w/wheels on it so now that you mention that I did read where CM3,Rodgers & a couple other were going to down there to cheer for him

    I told my wife that when we move up to Green Bay that likely every other Thanksgiving we'll go down to IN. w/our family which is about 7 hr. dr. from GB. The other yr we can travel to Detroit for a game(if they play GB of course). Green Bay actually has this Thanksgiving Day off

    Good luck! I have some friends who have worked/currently work at Curly's. They say it can get pretty crazy (except during games, when it's dead).
