Post-Cowboys This ’n That

As expected, Sunday’s Packers-Cowboys game was as wet as predicted. If it had been snow, it would’ve been a big mess for those traveling to Green Bay. One of the biggest drawbacks of a rain game is that we can’t provide photography from the game, as the camera equipment stays at home. Above, this is our view of Lambeau Field while walking to the stadium about 1:30 p.m.

This is a view of the field from the Northwest corner of the stadium. The players had not come out yet and they were still removing the tarp. The game itself was fine... although Dallas could’ve tied up the game through the third quarter. Thanks to the Packers’ rejuvenated running game and defense, they were able to pull out to and maintain a three-TD lead.

It’s always good to see this on the scoreboards as the fans file out into the evening darkness. At this game, they were playing classic Christmas music and everyone was in a good mood (compared to the last two home games).

Your Packerville, U.S.A. editor just before filing out of Lambeau. It was damp, but with the proper rain gear, the rainy weather doesn’t really make it too miserable. Hopefully, the Minnesota regular season finale will be dry. The cold is easy to prepare for. We’ve also paid the playoff tickets invoice, so we’ll see if that ends up with at least one game at Lambeau Field.
