Go to an NFL Game, Check

Last weekend I was able to complete one of the items on my to do (before I turn 25) list. I attended my first NFL football game. Mike and I spent the weekend in Green Bay with college friends Jordy and Emily Nelson and some of their friends Weston, Megan and their daughter Macy. Emily and I had the same host parents in college and our boyfriends (now husbands) were both at state universities. At the time Mike was running track at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and Jordy was on the football team at Kansas State University. Jordy's college football career took him to the NFL and they now call Green Bay home, where Jordy plays for the Packers.

As you will see from the following pictures, I tend to forget to use my camera, which is why I don't have any pictures of Jordy's face (sorry Jordy), pictures of Weston, Megan and Macy (sorry again) or pictures of the things we did in Green Bay besides going to the stadium and the game. With that said, here are some pictures from our trip.

I thought this sign was pretty fitting especially since I was so excited for the trip.

We took a tour of the stadium on Saturday. This was our tour guide showing us a picture of the locker room. Since it is an active locker room we couldn't tour it, but we asked Jordy if it actually stayed as clean as it is in the picture, and he said it does.

We had to take a "for the Christmas card" picture.

The stadium was really cool. During the tour we were able to walk out of the tunnel that the team walks out of, but we were not allowed to walk on the field.

We had so much fun at the game. We got to sit in the second row behind the team on the 40 yard line.

There is Jordy warming up. He moved too fast during the game, so I couldn't get a picture then.

Our seats were about 15 yards from the bench where Aaron Rodgers (the quarterback) sits when he isn't on the field.

The crowd was a little bit different than the sea of red at Memorial Stadium, but it was still fun to experience a game somewhere new. We also noticed that we had way more room at our seats than you do at a Nebraska game.

Thanks Emily and Jordy we had a wonderful time. Hopefully we can return the favor sometime with a relaxing weekend in Nebraska.
