Shovelers revel in their role

Early yesterday morning I wrote a post about the Packers putting out a call for people willing to help shovel out the stands at Lambeau Field. A day later, you can read about someone who was on the road at 4:30 a.m. to drive 150 miles for the privilege of tossing snow at Lambeau, or another who was in line at 6:15 a.m. to make sure he was one of the 300 lucky folks to be issued a shovel, or about the "reserves," or the really lucky ones who were called on to help remove the tarp off the hallowed frozen tundra itself. Nowhere else but Green Bay would fans drive 150 miles to shovel snow, or use part of their vacation time to stand in line in the hope of shoveling snow. Let's face it folks: Packer fans are the best! And you can read all about it here.
