This happened last year it seems but I just saw it today. It is amazing that you can get thousands of Americans to make it happen. Then not have the major media say much about it. I really think we need change there as well as in DC. The following is the explanation of what the picture are:

"Those who attended the game said it was extremely emotional to see the entire bowl of the stadium turn red, white and blue. It took 90 workers two weeks to get all of the colored card boards mounted under each seat. Each piece of card board had eye slits in them so the fans could hold up the colored sheet and still see through the eye slits. Every seat had to have the proper card, with no mistakes, to make this happen."



Lambeau Field

This is what ESPN failed to show you Monday night,
Apparently, they thought their commercials were more important than showing this scene for about 5 seconds.

You are right, it was last year. It was a Monday Night game and they DID show it on TV, from what I can recall of it. The local news was talking about it before hand, showing what it was supposed to look like and what it was gonna take to pull it off.

Obviously here in Packer Country there are lots of grateful fans willing to support the military.

When the Dolts snuck out of Baltimore, and before the Ravens came to town, I had to pick a new team to follow, and the Packers were that team. I still follow them, as well as the Ravens, and dread the day they face each other in the postseason. I won't know which team to root for. GO, CHEESEHEADS!!!
