    Have you not seen the weather report for the game? - if "rabid" means you exuberantly submit to life-threatening low temperatures (predicted -6 to -10F at game-time), yes maybe there's some rabidness (rabidity?) lacking.

    Last GB game I attended away from Lambeau was the coldest day in NYC in 25 years, and I left at halftime - not least because of a 21-3 score with the Packers on the short end to the NY Sack Exchange. Rabidity (rabidness?) has it limits...

    Plus there's the somber reality that the Pack ain't exactly proved themselves as a cold weather team in the new century.

    The '67 Ice Bowl (-13) was well attended, maybe the faithful have become soft?

    the news bit I saw said they became poor.
    said the locals in the area do not have the disposable $$$ any longer.
    said they have 8000 + to sell yet.
    It is all Obama's fault, they said.

    Farmers have the whey sprayed on the fields by tanker trucks with a big sprinkler type deal on it. Good for the crops. Radio station said this AM that could be -40 to -50 with the wind chill at game time. Sometimes I think they pad the temp to make it sound colder than it will be. Anyways a lot of folks around here do say it is a $ issue. Nobody thought they would make it so they didn't budget for it. Have no fear it won't be blacked out. I hope no one needs to get me some crow.

    Kind of what I was thinking.
    You used to have to be on a waiting list years long to get tickets. Has Packer Passion Pooped out?

    I am not sure how I feel about the squeaky ones, but was introduced to the fried ones at Buzz's in Mondovi this past summer and became a big fan.

    The waiting list is for season tickets....the only way those ever seem to come available is if somebody dies and the next of kin gives up the tickets.

    I think part of the ticket issue has to do with the 7500 or so extra seats they added recently....before that, this game would have been sold out.

    I seriously considered going to Lambeau for the game, and would have, had it been a noon game instead of 3:30. I'm not a big fan of a two and a half hour drive home, after dark in sub-zero weather, plus I'd need to find some brave soul to feed and air a bunch of dogs. A noon game would have made it a possibility.
