GREEN BAY--Packers tailgaters could find themselves popping up in a new documentary. A crew was out at Lambeau Field Thursday night, capturing the true meaning of being a cheese head.
“There’s football. There’s road tripping. There’s storytelling, and we thought what better way to see the country and to experience a lot of things we like than making a production out of it,” Mike Trupiano said, who created the idea with his brother.
The documentary is called "Tailgate 32". For 17 weeks, the crew from Detroit visits 32 NFL games around the country. Stop number four was for the rival game against the Chicago Bears, right here at Lambeau Field.
“Every fan base thinks they tailgate the best. Those are the stories that are going to get old by the time you get to the sixth and seventh city. We really do need to dig a little deeper and find out what makes that community special,” John Trupiano said.
Green Bay’s documentary will be posted on “Tailgate 32’s” website Saturday.
