In an email sent to season ticket holders, the Green Bay Packers have announced more highlights and details to Thursday's already jam-packed, star-studded NFL Kickoff event for Thursday's season-opening game between the Packers and the New Orleans Saints.

Among the highlights:

  • Former quarterback Bart Starr will represent the Packers carrying their team flag among NFL Alumni representing all 32 teams.
  • A flyover of four Air Force F-16 fighter jets will occur following the national anthem performed by American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.
  • Fireworks will accompany the unveiling of the championship year on the stadium wall prior to the game.
  • A championship banner will be displayed on the field prior to the game.
  • The parking lot is opening one hour earlier than normal, at 2:30 p.m. due to the closed streets and large number of people expected to attend the game and preceding concert.
  • The concert featuring Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5 will be broadcasted live in the stadium bowl beginning at 5:30 p.m.
  • Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 7:15 p.m. in order to witness all all pregame activities. Kickoff will be at 7:40 p.m.

If they could get Bart Starr waving the team colors out the window of a F-16 with fireworks going off, now that would be awesome.

I just got goosebumps when I read "Fireworks will accompany the unveiling of the championship year on the stadium wall prior to the game."

I hadn't even thought about that! Cannot wait for this!

If Brett came out in his lawnmower it would be awesome too.
