It’s not out of the ordinary to hear a recently crowned champion tell adoring fans that they are going to repeat.
It is out of the ordinary for more than 56,000 people to brave temperatures estimated at 15 degrees below zero wind chill on a school day to cheer on their heroes in a sold out NFL stadium.
“I’ll tell you what, Green Bay,” Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday to a frozen Lambeau Field crowd Tuesday. “We’re going to be right back here doing this exact same thing [next year].”
The support the Packers got on Tuesday is unique, like Green Bay’s relationship with its fans in general. 35,000 people greeted the Packers when they arrived home, just to watch the Packers’ motorcade go by.
