MILWAUKEE - The Green Bay Packers enjoyed a day off today after Sunday's thrilling win over Baltimore.
Most players stayed off the gridiron, while others made it down to Milwaukee - perhaps exploring some post-football career opportunities.
Where the nation's colors glow with green and gold - today's ambassadors were cornerback Micah Hyde and linebacker Brad Jones.
Passengers got a kick out of their greeters. The folks behind the desk had boldly changed their uniforms.
"You go home pumped because of your team, and you're pumped because you got your passengers where they were and it was a fun day to move them," said one airline worker.
We got a chance to speak with Southwest's new ticket agents - who definitely enjoyed today's home port advantage.
"I think it fuels me and everyone on the team to see fans out," says Brad Jones. "The excitement it gives you on game day."
The only unfortunate thing is the players couldn't do this on a weekend - but they do have to play on Sunday.
