icebowlticket.jpgTemperature at kickoff (5:30 CST) for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game in Green Bay is supposed to be 5 degrees above zero . . . and dropping from there.

Even though there are 100,000   half a million  10 million people who say they were in attendance at the original Ice Bowl, (sorry, the place only held a little more than 50,000 in 1967) at least one person had enough sense to stay out of the minus-17 temperatures and minus-48 wind chill.

That wise person’s unused ticket (shown left) to the 1967 NFL Championship Game sold for just under $2,400 in an Heritage Auction Galleries event in May 2006. The face value was $10.

If you’re heading to Lambeau Field this weekend, keep your ticket stub — and tell us what you’re going to wear to the game.

I didn’t like the outcome . . . by Pepper Hastings


. . . but I love a good headline. BTW, here’s the extended forecast for Green Bay for Sunday.

Partly cloudy. Highs around 10 above zero.
