Pre-Game Warm-ups at the Ice Bowl
Continuing our series on the 40th anniversary of the 1967 NFL championship game — the famed “Ice Bowl,” we have a few photos today of the players from each team on the field for pre-game warm-ups. Above, we see the visiting Dallas Cowboys coming out from the warmth of the locker room to practice a bit on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.
Here are two more photos (above) of the Cowboys trying to accomplish something prior to kick-off. Other than commiserating about the extremely cold weather conditions, we guess not much else was done.
Vince Lombardi and his Green Bay Packers also took to the field to go through their paces. On this day, even living in the normally cold winter weather in Titletown couldn’t have provided much of an advantage for the Packers.
