Green Bay Packer Fans Pregame Activities : Getting Up for Carolina

Don ZakCorrespondent INovember 29, 2008

Ever wonder how fans fill up those empty weekend hours before Sunday's kickoff? Besides hanging out at the Packer's Pro Shop or HOF, how can fans build upon the excitement and experience of a home game?

This weekend offers multiple opportunities for fans to interact with legends and Hall of Fame players from the Packer's rich and glories past.

Today, Craig Newsome (SB XXI) and Bob Skoronski (SB I & II) will be signing autographs for free from 12-2 PM in the Packer Pro Shop.

From 2-4 PM, two of the best running backs of all time will be in Green Bay as well.  Golden Boy Paul Hornung and famous Bears opponent Gale Sayers are signing their new books, with all profits being donated to charity at the HOF.

On top of all this wonderfulness, I was able to purchase four tickets directly from the Packer's box office for Sunday's Carolina game. Apparently the Panthers returned about 200 tickets, so I was simply visiting Lambeau and strolled over. $59 dollars later, I had my tickets.   

It will be difficult to answer which Packers team will show up tomorrow. Regardless of the answer to that question—The one who has played lights-out football the last two home games against Indy and Chicago or the more recent team that played almost like Lioness against the Saints, Vikings or Falcons—home games are always the best of times.

I will leave this interesting and perplexing question to the writers here at B/R, as I indulge in an unexpectedly early Christmas gift, delivered in part by TT!

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!

What better way to build the Packer pre-game atmosphere and excitement than alittle player / fan interaction? Get Up Packer fans!!
