Packers fans are heading to Atlanta.  Many were feeling hopeful as they were boarding flights at Mitchell International Airport Friday night.

"The Packers are going to the Super Bowl...I'm right there with them," said Dylan and Amber Pedretti.

"I'm very excited.  This is my first away Packers game so especially being a playoff game I'm really excited," explained Omar Zuberi.

"I think the Packers are going to win. I think they're on a roll," said Tom Kurtz.

Tom Kurtz, his daughter, and grandsons are headed south hoping to see a win.

"I think it will be pretty crazy, but I'm excited," said Zach Paulsen.

"It's going to be just super fun just going to live in the moment and hope they win," explained Nick Paulsen.

One couple says the trip is a splurge.

"We got 22nd row, 50 yard line, once in a lifetime.  I mean we've got two small kids at home so it's not like everyday we can just fly somewhere," explained Amber Hinneverg.

"We gave the kids college funds away to do this," joked Michael Rogalski.

Hence the stomachache.

"I feel a little sick because of nerves right now, but we're going to pull it out," said Rogalski.

These fans aren't asking for much.

"As long as we win, we get to see the trophy presentation and I get to touch Clay Matthews," explained Roglaski.
