A wise Pin on Pinterest once read “Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe.”
Packer Family, thank you for clicking to read about training camp thus far!!
Throughout our four day trip to training camp, the Packers Experience provided a fun, interactive vibe for all ages. My husband attempted the field goal kick multiple times. Only one tweak to the hammie.
We also interacted with players as they rode to or from practice. As the hype man in the crowd, I led the fans surrounding me in singing Happy Birthday to Lucas Patrick as he rode by. I was even lucky enough to score autographs and even a few selfies.
With a download of the Packers Pass, we received awesome free swag including both a 100 year licensed drawstring backpack plus a 100-year pin. One killer detail: The backpack is missing any sponsor logos but has a hologram sticker. Nice job Packers; nailed it! (a)
Our Packers Family rocks a more serious vibe when it comes to practices at Ray Nitschke Field. Get there early but know you can only “save spots” until 15 minutes prior to the start. It is encouraged that you stand, stretch, and take breaks during tv timeouts and videos are not allowed. The staff knows their stuff. Our section steward reminded us to “stay hydrated” and she refused to let peers walk in front of our section during practice. In a midwestern polite way, she asked folks to “walk around back.” I should mention she had tattoos of both David Bakhtiari and Clay Matthews.
One night we climbed the 78 steps to meet a fellow Packer fan from twitter. With Titletown and Lambeau Field in view, we listened to music, talked Packers, and chilled.
We left wishing we could stay but knew we’d be back!
Fans staying the rest of the week were most looking forward to both Family Night practice, Saturday, August 4th (which is officially sold out now) and Donald Driver’s Charity Softball game, Sunday, August 5th.
A 13x World Champion vibe always; I leave you with a quote spoken by a crossing guard at the corner of Oneida and Armed Forces Drive. “Welcome to Training Camp. “Let’s light this candle and burn it all the way to Atlanta!!”
- Shout out though to Old El Paso for the taco truck and free samples and American Family Insurance for sponsoring The Bumbys. The Bumbys, ever heard of them? Me neither. They are anonymous performance artists who provide “A Fair and Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance.” The opposite of insulting, their appraisals focus on the positive. Good vibes only.
