Packers fans feast, celebrate ahead of the Monday night game

GREEN BAY (WAOW) -

Lambeau Field was electric hours before the Packers took the field. "I feel like my heart is pumping out of my chest," said Bryan Parish of Tomah. "It's like a kid on Christmas day."

Fans couldn't get enough of the green and gold, saying the team's winning record is cause for celebration. "They have the team, I don't think anyone can stop them."

Sheryl and Terry Schulte celebrated the game, and a milestone: 25 years of marriage. "When we heard there was a Packers game on Monday night the same weekend as our anniversary, we decided to come."

Other fans got into game day mode with a little food, including venison wrapped in bacon and of course brats.

Packers fans also took part in a little fun before kick-off. Some played "Hammerschlagen"-- a German game where players try to be the first to hit a nail into a log.

And when it comes to the Packers one fan hit the nail on the head. "It's the tradition and the fans," said Chuck Miesfield of Sheboygan. "The Packers are owned by the people. It's a great team."

A successful tailgate, made even better by the Packers' win over Minnesota.
