Here We Go

Tonight, the Packers will run through the tunnel at Lambeau Field, and the 2011 season will start.

Although the tunnel was moved a few years ago as part of the stadium's renovations, the tradition of running through the tunnel from the locker room to the field remains a link between the players of today and the legends who have worn the green and gold going back to the 1950s.

These signs, among the last things a player would see before taking the field, were placed in what was then called (New) City Stadium by Vince Lombardi. He was an early adopter of inspirational posters, which he used to motivate his players and set the tone for the organization. Personally, I think the top one's a little wordy, but the bottom sign has a nice punch to it.

Go! You, Packers, Go! Beat the Saints, and bring the bacon home to old Green Bay!
