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 warming.
Last week didn’t quite feel like December at Lambeau. 45 balmy degrees, and a playing surface that looked more September than the frozen tundra. Any warmer and it might as well been the Metrodome.
OK, 28 days before the previous home game and the grounds crew gets some of the credit, although an old-fashioned, sloppy surface would have helped stopping Adrian Peterson at least a little.
This Sunday is a bit different; you can’t keep winter out of Wisconsin too long in December.
According to AccuWeather, exactly 3.33 inches of snow is forecast. If it were a 12 noon start this would make for the NFL’s ulti...

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.

When the Green Bay Packers were sitting at a 2-3 record with an offense that seemed to be sputtering and looking up at the rest of the NFC North, many began to write their 2012 season eulogy already. Since then, the Pack has won seven of eight, including knocking off the top seed in the AFC with a “got our mojo back” performance in Houston on Sunday Night Football; the Texans’...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers did not want to be the quarterback responsible for ending the Packers' 21-year win streak over the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. But early in the second quarter Sunday night, it was starting to look as if Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was going to help his team snap the skid that began in 1991 when he was only three years old.
