What did we learn last night during the Lions-Packers game? Aaron Rodgers wears a thong during games. We also learned that Lambeau Field has a heating system that will melt snow on impact. This has to be one of the big travesties in NFL history. It’ll take a blizzard to ever have a snow game at Lambeau.
So long, Frozen Tundra.

For the second week in a row the Green Bay Packers used a strong second half to secure a victory, this time it was against the Detroit Lions.
It was a snowy night in Lambeau Field, but the adverse weather conditions didn’t slow down the Lions at first. After the opening drive, the Lions jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead after a 12 play, 80-yard drive.

The weather forecast holds promise.
Dreaming of a White Packers home game is now almost wished upon as much as a White Christmas.
Not that a White Christmas is a huge necessity; at least a Christmas without snow ensures getting to Grandma’s and back safely.
But white-out Packers games become instant memories.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem to happen as often these days – damn global...
Balance was the word of the day for the Green Bay Packers on a snowy night at Lambeau Field.

The Detroit Lions travel into historic Lambeau Field Sunday night to do battle with the Green Bay Packers. The Frozen Tundra has been a house of horrors for The Detroit Lions as they continue to battle ghosts of the past and present. Detroit hasn’t won in Green Bay since George H.
