Packers Welcome-Back Party Sold Out!

Imagine sitting in 10 degree weather with a nice wind-chill and enjoying a nice beer while saluting the return of your home town heroes – Green Bay Packers! Well that dream came to reality. Today (Tues Feb 8), the “Return to Titletown” event kicked off for the entire day at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Tickets for the event went on sale Monday morning for $5 a piece, and they were sold out by the afternoon. The tickets went as high as $140 a pop on stubhub, today. Some fans were even tailgating in 3 degree weather this morning.

Don Jobe, 24, of Appleton, and three of his friends were in the Lambeau parking lot by 9:45 a.m., braving 3-degree temperatures and a negative 14-degree wind chill to tailgate. 

“That’s what true Packer fans do,” Jobe said as he struggled in the cold to light the group’s grill. “You only win the Super Bowl so often.”
