Packers player says he looks forward to his first Wisconsin winter

CREATED Oct. 30, 2013

Perhaps Sam Barrington doesn't know what he's in for, considering the cutting cold, snow, ice and everything else a Wisconsin winter brings.

However, the rookie Packers linebacker says he's got anticipation for it.

As he tweeted Monday:

Does Barrington, who is from Florida and went to school in the Tampa area, really know the full history of the Packers in the cold?

Does he realize he might play an NFC Championship Game in -13 temperatures and -48 wind chills like the Ice Bowl?

Does he know the power of a Green Bay snowstorm?

He may want to pay close attention to the Storm Team 4 and NBC26 Precision Forecasts over the next few months.
