ESPN.com is in the building
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Call us crazy, but we're in place high atop Lambeau Field, having arrived a personal-record four hours before kickoff. Truth be told, we attended the first of ESPN's weekly Monday Night Football Chalk Talk and didn't feel like riding back to Appleton. (We also thought it might be inappropriate to belly-up at one of the fine local establishments around the stadium).
We have yet to find anyone else who heard this morning's truck-horn incident outside the Vikings' hotel, raising the possibility that we dreamed it. (Unlikely, for the most part). We'll continue investigating.
It's a chilly (58 degrees), overcast day here, and I wouldn't be surprised if it rains. Just the conditions you'd expect from a Black and Blue game.
Our plan will be keep up a steady flow of entries before, during and after tonight's game. We'll also check in on the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. Save a window for us, or at least a tab, as you follow the game.
For now, we'll leave you with a trivia question we heard at today's luncheon: Name the last Packers quarterback -- not named Brett Favre -- to start a Monday night game.
We'll check back soon with the answer.
