Only In Packer Country . . . . .

Since Green Bay won the Super Bowl last year, the NFL is providing a free pre-game concert tonite with Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5 prior to the season opener. To make this happen two main streets in that area are closed for 10 days to set up and take down the stage, street lights and stop lights were removed, as well as several trees.

3000 tickets for the concert were handed out which required those who signed up for them to stay at the concert site after the game starts tonite. A second concert will then be held outside the stadium and filmed for showing on TV at some later time (Watch your listings, ladies! LOL)

The good news is that some really nice things are happening too. A number of the Packers players are leading sessions of Play 60 to get kids active for 60 minutes a day. Some former NFL players and members are building a playground at a local school. Several retired Packers are to be honored and are participating in the pre-game and half time activities on the field. That is always a cool thing.
