I absolutely love living in Green Bay, Wisconsin. One of the many things I love about the city is its hometown NFL team. Packer training camp starts this week. Last year nearly 100,000 people came to Green Bay from every state and 25 foreign countries to watch the Packers practice. Just practice. The resident population of the city is only 104,000, the smallest city with a professional sports team. Next month the Packers will hold an open scrimmage at Historic Lambeau Field before 80,000 adoring fans, not an actual game. Most NFL teams would love to see 80,000 fans for an actual game. Only in Green Bay, Titletown USA.

Well said! I don’t think everyone in the area truly realizes how unique the Packers’ presence here is and how special their relationship with the community is. The Packers are unlike any other professional team. I’ve been accused of being biased, but I honestly believe the Packers and their hometown is the greatest story in the history of professional team sports. You are 100% correct. The Packers and the city that supports a fan-owned team has much to be proud of. Truly unique!
You know I live in enemy territory, but the saving grace is there are about 10 Packer bars around, the only problem is, if you are not in line outside the bar prior to opening you may not get a seat. The NFL is celebrating 100 years of football this year … as of 100 years the Green Bay Packers are the all time leaders in championships. 100 year of Green Bay Packers thank you for memories shirt. I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Encompass Early Education and Care, Inc. which recently celebrated 100 years of caring for and educating the greater Green Bay area’s youth.
