What a fun week (even with a Saints loss). Green Bay is a beautiful place — in September. I’d hate to be at Lambeau in January. The people were great, too. Our neighbors grilled up 70 brats for us and one of our engineers cooked some Gumbo that we shared with them. Coach Mora loved the brats. He might have killed half of them.
To recap, sports anchor Chris Miles and I arrived in Green Bay Sunday night and did our first live shot that night at 10. We were live in every newscast after that through game day. Sports anchor Fletcher Mackel arrived Wednesday.
I was very proud of the effort put forth by our team in Green Bay. We had roughly 15 people there during the course of our coverage and they all played a pivotal role in us putting some incredible content on the air. I’ve never been involved in such a major production and it went as close to flawlessly one could hope for.
Plus our backdrop was great. Lambeau Field behind us was pretty impressive.
Below are my trip highlights. Pictures to come soon.
The Governor of Wisconsin is named Scott Walker and sharing his name made my week in Green Bay interesting. A lot of people like him and a lot of people hate him. I tracked him down before the game on Thursday. Check out the interview HERE.
The PackerPlex – The decked out house we stayed in all week. It made telling this story easy.
The Packers Hall of Fame is great. I even got to wear a Super Bowl ring and attempt the Lambeau Leap.
If you’re ever in Green Bay and are looking for a good brew, hit up the Titletown Brewery in Downtown Green Bay. Great people, great beer.
There is a lot of great food unique to Wisconsin. The executive chef of Lambeau Field showed me some of his favorite dishes.
There is a fence in Green Bay that’s a pretty big deal. People from all over the community come over to paint it each year before the season opener.
