Ever since I got hooked to NFL
(the watching part only; as much as I would love to, I still cannot throw anything that looks like a decent spiral), it had been my dream to watch at least one game live in a stadium. While talking to a dear friend, I was informed about the match up between two of my favorite teams - New England Patriots
visiting Green Bay Packers
And what better place to start the live-game-watching-affair than at the history-rich, tradition-filled, holy Lambeau Field?? With the possibility of seeing two potential Hall of Fame caliber athletes in action in one game, I didn't have to think twice to start searching for a ticket.
Seated amidst an ocean of Packers and islands of far-traveled Patriots fans, the hospitality of Packer-nation was overwhelming - even when the 35-0 deficit was staring them straight in the eye. I am extremely grateful to the Packers Security Personnel who let me carry my 70-200 mm telephoto lens into the stadium. I was lucky enough to get a picture of the Iron Man
running on to the field during warm-ups.
