STADIUM: The stadium is excellent. As old as Lambeau Field is, I expected a dump. Something along the lines of Fenway Park or Wrigley, or at best RFK Stadium. Instead, the stadium was very modern looking and well maintained. It puts the Redskins' pathetic FedEx Field (opened in 1998) to complete shame. A large number of enclosed luxury boxes partially surrounded the lower seating bowl in a horseshoe shape. I wondered whether those people felt ashamed to be sitting in heated comfort while those in the stands froze in single digit temps. Probably not. But the view from our seats in the 56th row ($50 face value seats) beats the view in at least half the seats at FedEx where upperdeck blimp-view seats face at $55. Don't ask about concessions. It was just too cold to get up and check them out! Posted by Hello
