And we’re immediately off to the second segment of the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl celebration at Lambeau Field. Technically it’s now a parade, as defensive coordinator Dom Capers led the coaching staff on a wade through the Wisconsin snow as the higher-ups listed their names. It looks horrifyingly cold — all parkas everything.
Some camera shots resulted in coaches halfway disappearing behind mounds of snow.
Next up, the offensive and defensive lines got to make the rounds. Much bigger applause for the D-line than any other introductee so far. Tight ends followed, along with a conspicuous amount of security personnel.
Kevin Greene’s linebacker unit entered next, and yes, of course one Packers ’backer whipped another with a white towel. Greg Jennings and his fellow wide receivers got the next call, followed by the banged-up secondary. Both were well-received.
The biggest cheers, of course, came for quarterbacks, of whom Aaron Rodgers was the last one out of the tunnel. Somewhere in there running backs must’ve been introduced, but I missed it.
Coach Mike McCarthy was introduced last, bearing the Lombardi Trophy. As he circled the field, he extended the trophy into the crowd so fans could touch it.
