GREEN BAY - It's estimated that nearly 800,000 football fans will come through Lambeau Field's turnstiles to watch Green Bay Packers games this year.
As of Monday, they've reached a bigger number for the amount of visitors who have stepped in a locker room, walked through the tunnel toward the sometimes "Frozen Tundra" and stepped in a luxury box for the tour of Lambeau Field.
But Noah Bolton of Spring Green, Wis. didn't just get those privileges when he took the Packers tour Monday.
The Packers honored him as the 1,000,000th fan in stadium tour history by giving him a lifetime pass for tours, an overgrown Packers cupcake, lunch at Curly's Pub and a special commemorative jersey.
“I’m definitely going to brag about it,” Bolton said about the tour in a Packers statement.
His brother is apparently a Chicago Bears fan.
“I’d like to see them do something like this in Chicago. I bet they don’t have that.”
