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.”
Well, I guess I can forget about anyone getting 2 tix for me….
I hope that the Packers brain trust provides a send-off worthy of the man they honor.
On the Mike and Mike show he eluded to some kind of special sendoff that would be more than a pep rally. Could be interesting.
1,000 tickets given out to people waiting in line in -3F weather to hear Donald Driver retire. That’s pretty cool. That’s why he retired as a Packer.
the most popular Packer ever? time will tell, but he is in the company of Bart Starr popularity-wise right now. A great dude!
For those of you fortunate enough to go, give Quickie one helluva send off. My favorite Packer personality ever. I see Drive showing up on Dancing with the stars again!
Thanks for the memories Donald. Way to go out with class.
I’m the guy in the sauna in line at stadium. I really wish the packers would rethink this bad move to release the player of the decade. He is able to give so many more touchdowns and plays that blow our minds. He is like batman on the field. You don’t know what’s going to happen next with him. .Ya he’s up in age but he sure can play. why do you think he could start . where ever he could go love you donald . kevin sauna guy
