Fans get fired up before big game


"Welcome to Titletown U.S.A.!"

Dozens of green and gold fans descended on the streets of downtown Green Bay to show their support for the home team.

"The team spirit is coming back," Packers fan Kelly Crabb said. "It is so awesome to see everyone that has come out."

It's all part of the annual play-off pep rally as the Green Bay Packers prepare for Saturday's rivalry rematch against the Minnesota Vikings.

"We're having a whole bunch of fun!" Fans yelled as they spilled onto the streets.

Packers President and CEO, Mark Murphy, took it upon himself to fire up the crowd.

"We have the best fans in the world and you guys show it everyday," Murphy told everyone, raising a fist in the air.

The streets of Green bay were shut down as fans waved flags, sang along to music, and chanted, "Go Pack Go!"

"It is so nice to have something to pull for in your hometown," one fan said.

"We will be here rain or shine, if it was snowing, we would be out here supporting our team," another chimed in.

But, music, chants, and dancing aside, fans say there's something else.

"The best part about today is the game is tomorrow!" Trevor Bowman yelled.

And he's right. The entire state will have all eyes glued, hoping the green and gold can snag a win at home on Saturday night.
