It's Thursday & time to wrap this one up! I see @SenorMalcolm on twitter has asked if my seats were good seats (50 yd line) ~ it's far easier to answer here than there. Yes, Malcolm center of the field 50 yd line tickets give you a perfect straight on view of the entire field (left to right or in Lambeau, North to South) including both end zones. Section 120 is the Packers home sideline, so in addition to the field, you get to see your players, identify the backside of Coach MM by the red flag hanging out his right rear pocket & where he is at on the field on any given play if you so desire. Have the opportunity to see others in the Packers organization, the doctors, the position coaches, the trainers & I got to even see Mark Murphy.

My daughter helps me search the website for those things that are prohibited to bring. I decide our camera needs to stay home because it makes videos (things that make videos are prohibited). I realized how foolish this was after I got settled in the stadium & saw so many folks with cameras & phones that both take pictures & videos, and in fact pitching in to take family pictures for some of them. My daughter teases me that I can only buy two beers at a time & all beer sales stop at the beginning of the 4th quarter. She's got that 'way wicked' grin on her face because she knows I don't have…
