Packers Pride takes over Green Bay before the big game

Packers Pride takes over Green Bay before the big game

By Annie Scholz. CREATED Sep 7, 2011

GREEN BAY - Packers pride was everywhere at Lambeau Field, a full day before Thursday's big game, especially for Mike Prell. "It's Lambeau Field. Super Bowl champs. You got to welcome them back."

Prell took in the sights as crews got everything set outside. "Just tailgating. The 24 hour pre-tailgate we're calling it."

Meanwhile, fans inside, like David Brookshire, got their hands on some new green and gold gear. "Everytime we come here, which is about every two years from North Carolina, we load up on stuff to take back."

Even before the first down or the first touchdown, these fans have some high expectations for the returning champs. Prell is making his prediction. "I think we're going to repeat and it should be awesome."

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
