From the Ice Bowl to the Lambeau Leap, there is no place like Lambeau Field. This year, the home of the NFL's Green Bay Packers turns 50 years old. Take a tour of this historic stadium!

Lambeau Field - History

Lambeau Field is the oldest stadium in the NFL. Opening in 1957, Lambeau Field was originally named City Stadium, after their previous home field's name. It was renamed in 1965 in memory of the team's former coach Curly Lambeau, who died earlier that year. Lambeau Field was one of the most electric sports venues in the mid-sixties because the Packers were such a dominant team at that time. The stadium played host to one of the most memorable NFL games in history during the 1967 NFC Championship Game - where the Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in a thriller. The game was played in -25 °C weather and the field was nearly ice. That's why the game was nicknamed the Ice Bowl! Through the years, Lambeau Field has seen some great players grace the field including - Bart Starr, Reggie White and Brett Favre.

Lambeau Field - Upgrades

In 2003, the stadium underwent a massive, $295 million renovation. Now the exterior is on par with many of the new and modern stadiums. Lambeau Field has premier shopping, dining and fan-zones. There are also many sculptures, including two huge ones of the franchises' most storied coaches - Vince Lombardi and Curly Lambeau. The cool thing about Lambeau Field is they were able to keep the signature bowl seating and the natural grass, keeping some of the original flavor to the renovated stadium.

Lambeau Field - Fans

Lambeau Field is one of the best places to watch pro football because of the fans. Known as the "cheeseheads", Packer fans are some of the most passionate and prideful fans in the league. If you go to Lambeau, also expect to see the "Lambeau Leap". When a Packer player scores a touchdown, he jumps into the crowd and the fans catch him! It's not easy to get into Lambeau Field though - season tickets have been sold out since 1960, and there's still a waiting list of 74,000!

Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
