I’ve been to Lambeau. I drove through the city of Green Bay. I gazed upon the green, yellow, and hunter orange from afar. I drove through the neighborhood in which The Beau sits. A fact that all of Wisconsin seems to hold some pride in. I surveyed the shrines in the backyards of the houses that have Lambeau surrounded. One house carved out of wood the big silly “G.” Wow. Neat. I stood at one of the entrances and beheld the statues of Curly and Mo er…Lombardi.
Tears failed to come to my eyes. I hear the comparisons between Arrowhead and Lambeau. I’ll take Arrowhead. Lambeau is a few years older than Arrowhead but when they started construction on Arrowhead in 1965; the architecture was perfect. I get chills just thinking about my visits to Arrowhead. If you’ve ever been to a Division I college football game then you’ve been to Lambeau. The sightlines at Arrowhead were ahead of its time. When you walk into the concourse you can see it all and the views are spectacular. At Arrowhead you get all of the sights, sounds, smells, history all packaged in an amazing stadium with terrific fans.
At Lambeau, you’re better served to step across the street and grab a Kroll’s burger. Delicious. Though for us Purple faithful you will have to keep your head down or risk losing your amazing burger due to the Pack paraphernalia surrounding you.
Lastly, I would like to thank all of the Wisconsinites for coming out of their tree stands and putting theirs bows down for a few hours on Monday night. I am sure it’s a difficult thing to do.
