When I answered my phone a few minutes ago, all I could hear in the background was the sweet roar of bar patrons and the all too familiar "clinking" sound of cold bottles. Little did I know ...
... it was David (IronMan), in Green Bay, hitting the bar scene on the eve of the showdown with the Colts. After a few quick pleasantries, and a moment to order a Miller Lite, David painted the picture of the last few hours.
He had made it to his hotel, and got a few hours of much needed rest. After perhaps the last nap of the trip, it was off to soak up some atmosphere this evening. It has been pretty straight forward tonight, although he did run into some Colts fans that told him it looked like "someone took a crap" on his Packer's hat. He handled it like a true professional of course, fully aware that those douche bags will get their ass beat by night's end anyway.
You're in Wisconsin people - think.
David will finish the night by hitting "The Bar" in Green Bay. Seriously, that's what the place is called. Later tomorrow, he will be hitting the "Titletown Tickets Tailgate" where twenty-five bucks gets you all the beer and brats you can handle.
It is here, from the Tailgate, that will we will have a live interview with David. The Packers Lounge will post this interview (if it works) right before gametime. We will find out what the mood is, what the popular jersey of choice is, (I'm thinking Rodgers or Jennings - don't even say it) and of course find out exactly what the Iron Man is drinking before hitting the bleachers.
I also expect a full report tomorrow morning on any further shenanigans from Saturday night.
