>Snow Bowl or Ice Bowl, It’s Lambeau Field

>The NFL playoffs had an impact on Amigo’s birthday. Husband planned to get him a gift in Dallas, since he was expecting to be there this week preparing to work covering the preparations to the NFC Conference Championship Game. Well, the Giants (Thanks, Eli and company!) beat the Cowboys, handing home field advantage to our very own Packers, so Husband didn’t have to travel! He could stay home! He could be here for Amigo’s birthday! He — didn’t have a gift for his son’s 16th birthday.
Oh, it’s all okay. He presented Amigo with an IOU for Packer Apparel in the form of whatever title they win this year, after the postseason is over.
But meanwhile, if the storm moves in tomorrow as forecast, Lambeau will need locals to come in and shovel the seats for the second time this week. And game time forecast is for a c-c-c-cold evening. But it’s still a beauty, that shrine to the League, isn’t it? Rain, shine, or even snow-covered.

And if you’re not interested in following the saga of my family’s obsession with the NFL Playoffs, I have an (almost) unrelated post up at Mid-Century Modern Moms.

  1. >Only in Green Bay would people come out in force to shovel out a stadium. For $8 an hour. After shoveling out their own driveways and sidewalks.
    Let’s hear it for Packer Pride;)

  2. >Even though I’m originally from Chicago, you’ve got to love the Packers.

    In a world where teams are sold at the drop of a hat and cities are held hostage for ever larger stadiums, the Packers are like a 1960’s team in a 21st century world (in all the best ways). I hope they take it all.
