Jets at Packers Gallery
It’s been a busy week, not leaving us much time to devote to the blog. But we wanted to share these images from the Packers-Jets game last Sunday afternoon. Actually, the first few are from Saturday, as we see Lambeau Field the day before, being prepared for the game the next day.
The grounds crew is painting the hash marks on the field so they’ll be fresh about 24 hours later.
