If you know a Green Bay Packers fan then you know there are no more loyal (or passionate) football fans in world. Packers fans can be a bit over the top when it comes to football. First of all, Green Bay is a city of 250,000 people. Almost everyone in the city knows at least one person who is a season ticket holder (and by the way, there is a waiting list of over 100,000 fans wanting to be such ticket holders). Next, tailgating starts at 7 a.m. Yes, you read that right, 7 a.m. Packer fans don’t just cook the traditional Wisconsin Bratwursts, they start with ham and eggs for breakfast and even use the grill. The early morning drink is the Bloody Mary, but only until 8 a.m. when the Miller Lite starts flowing. Then come the brats and just about anything else you can imagine.
Being at Lambeau Field to experience a Packers tailgate outing is something you will never forget. So what do Packers fans do when the weather turns brutally cold? The same things they do when the temperatures are in the 80’s, of course: they tailgate, grill and drink even more beer to keep warm. You have to drink a beer quickly when the temperature is 10 below! You will also witness fans around the Green Bay area hosting outdoor Packers parties during the coldest of games. They set up a 42″ LCD TV in the garage and bundle up like Eskimos to watch the game outside. This stuff cannot be made up!Even though it’s often cold and snowy in Green Bay on game days, the sun does shine, and what could be better than outfitting Dad or your favorite Packers fan with a pair of Green Bay Packers sunglasses that allow him to display his team spirit but do not obstruct his vision from the field. As the result of newly patented technology, you can now purchase such a pair of sunglasses that display the Packers team logo to everyone except him. The sunglasses are made of a lightweight acrylic material. As a result, they are very comfortable to wear and durable. You can find these sports-themed glasses for around $21.00 at most locations, which make the perfect affordable sports gifts for Dad or any other passionate Packers fan on your shopping list!
