It is extremely cold in Green Bay

New, comment

Even Packers fans aren't tailgating.

It's very, very, very, very, very cold for the Wild Card matchup between the Packers and the 49ers.

HOW COLD IS IT?

So cold that even Wisconsinites -- who would brave hail, sleet, snow, and zombie outbreak for booze -- aren't drinking heavily four hours before the game.

Surely, the Packers fans will show up. They'll drink. They'll fill -- or come close to filling -- Lambeau Field, even though it's damn near Arctic. But even this level of drinking indifference is a surprise.

UPDATE:

So cold that the "grass" is not even remotely that anymore:

Just millions of blanched corpse-blades. AND YET:

PUT SOME DAMN PANTS/SHIRTS ON.

So cold that ski/pimp garb is a perfectly reasonable outfit to be wearing:

... although, based on their peers' behavior, those guys might very well be pantsless.

So cold that you have to grill your beer to make it merely cold instead of frozen solid:
