GREEN BAY — Sunday's Packers game is expected to be cold, so fans who are planning to head to the game should make sure to follow these tips to keep warm.
The Packers take on the Seahawks Sunday at 5:40 p.m. and temperatures are going to be cold. Fans should expect below freezing temperatures all throughout the game, a true Frozen Tundra experience.
Dress for the weather
The most effective way to stay warm in any situation is layering your clothes. This is especially the case for Sunday's game. Since fans won't be moving a whole lot, layers are necessary. Overdressing shouldn't even be a concern.
When planning what to wear, here's a few things to remember: a windbreaker does a great job of keeping out the cold Wisconsin breeze, wicking material traps in your body heat pretty well and fleece does the same.
Don't forget those hats, scarves and mittens too. Remember, mittens do a lot better of a job keeping your hands warm than typical gloves.
Warm the bench
One of the easiest ways to freeze your butt off at Sunday's game is by sitting on that ice cold metal bench. Be sure to bring a thick blanket or seat cushion so you don't have to sit directly on the bench. Even some newspaper or cardboard can make a world of difference.
In addition to the bench, try and keep your feet off the ground as much as possible. If you can, lay some cardboard in front of your seat so that cold ground doesn't seep into your shoes and freeze your toes off.
Don't get cold feet
If your feet are cold, your whole body will be cold. Wear layers upon layers of socks, warm boots and maybe even pack some toe warmers. In addition, make sure those shoes are waterproof. The last thing you want is to step in some snow or a puddle and have wet, cold feet for the next three hours.
Take advantage of the heated bathrooms
In case you didn't know, the bathrooms at Lambeau are heated. So, when you go in to use the bathroom, hang out by the sinks for a bit and warm up. Just don't hang out in the stall, we all hate the lines so don't be part of the problem!
Eat warm foods, and drink warm drinks
Hot chocolate and chili are both good for the soul. If you're warm on the inside, it'll warm you on the outside, so buy some hot chocolate, chili or any other warm item. It may not keep your toes warm, but it'll stop your teeth from chattering.
A little recommendation, when you get that hot chocolate, get the reusable cup. It's a good souvenir and there's a smaller chance of spilling!
Cheer like a crazy person
Don't forget that the more you move, the warmer you'll be! So represent Green Bay and Wisconsin well, cheer loud and proud for the Pack!
Watch from the comfort and warmth of your own home
Remember, watching from home is always an option; you'll have heat, unlimited food and a bathroom without lines! You can catch the Packers game on Fox at 5:40 p.m.
