Some people might hate the cold, but as a Wisconsin man, I love it. I hate the Packers and everything the team represents, but I love the cold.

The colder weather we can get for a football game, the better. Bring on the coldest weather you can find.

Legendary football games generally happen in wild weather. Look at mud games or the Ice Bowl back in 1967 when the Packers beat the Cowboys. People love insane weather for NFL games.

Now, do the fans in the stands necessarily love it? Well, if they don’t, the boys can just drink a few more beers and get that buzz blanket on.
