GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Last week’s playoff victory was a win Packers fans could literally sink their teeth into.
The mayor Green Bay served up the winnings of his friendly wager with the mayor New York. Boylan’s soda, Junior’s cheesecake and Murray’s bagels were on the menu at Friday afternoon’s pep rally in downtown Green Bay at the Packers Heritage Trail Plaza.
There was also a band and a speech from Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy, and plenty of cheering at the mere mention of the word “Packers.”
This week, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt is putting brats from Ski’s Meats up against Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings’s offer of barbecue.
Packers fan Christopher Handler said, “The Green Bay Packers are going to win over the Dallas Cowboys, and and we’re going to be number one. Super Bowl 51. We’re going to take this puppy this year, and I’m going to root the Packers on all the way through.”
Gov. Scott Walker issued a proclamation declaring Friday “Green and Gold Day” throughout the state. That may have been Friday, but the governor said he encourages “all Packers fans, both in Wisconsin and across the country, to demonstrate support for the Packers this weekend by wearing green and gold.”
