My team hasn't won a Super Bowl in my lifetime but I imagine the post-Super Bowl parade is one of the best possible feelings for a fan. The Green Bay Packers, after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, aren't having a traditional parade.
Instead, they'll be celebrating at Lambeau Field with their fans. The Packers, who returned home on Monday, are scheduled to host a victory celebration on Tuesday between 5:00-6:00 p.m. (ET) at Lambeau Field. Tickets for the event, which are five dollars apiece, went on sale Monday morning and can be bought through Ticketmaster outlets only.
My first thought was, 'They're making you pay for the victory celebration?' But it's not like that. All proceeds will go to the Packers Foundation charities. Parking at the event will be free.
SB Nation's Acme Packing Company, like most Packers fans, thinks it's a great idea (though I imagine just about anything is great 48 hours after your team wins the Super Bowl).
Having a giant open celebration sounds like a great idea. And the kids will be able to attend because their school day was shortened so they could get there with plenty of time to spare. The only negative is that the weather isn't great with the temperature below freezing and a chance of snow. Luckily there should be so many people there that they can celebrate together for warmth.
Anyone else who isn't a Packers fan wishing they were one right now? I know I am.
