They Lined Up Around Lambeau For Donald Driver Tickets
Were you one of the people who skipped work this morning, threw on your coveralls and drove over to Lambeau Field to get tickets to Donald Driver‘s retirement ceremony?
You crazy SOB!
Apparently, tickets to the Green Bay Packers all-time leading receiver’s farewell event were a popular item. The temperature was -3 in Green Bay Friday morning, which is when the Packers started handing out the free tickets to Driver’s ceremony.
It looks like that didn’t stop anyone.
The good news is, people probably didn’t have to stand there that long. The Packers began handing out the tickets at 9 a.m. local time and they were gone by 9:14. Around 1,000 were handed out.
Here’s what the tickets look like, in case you were wondering. These bad boys belong to Lisa Hartley, who said she was around the 250th person in line this morning.
And to quote, “I froze my butt off, but it was so worth it.”
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
