I get that many might not know much about the Packers players, or Wisconsin even. But how can a dedicated football player / fan not know about Lambeau field? In today's world of selling the naming rights, etc.. it is one of few that hasn't sold out.

Here is to hoping Rodgers shows him around the whole stadium when they come to town.. give him a front row into the "Lambeau" Leap. [grin1]

CNNSI said:
ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Packers game tape flashed across the big screen during a Lions defensive backs meeting this summer. Many of the men in the room had played at the stadium on the film, named after the founder of the 94-year-old Green Bay franchise. The corners and safeties got to talking about pro football’s most revered venue. Then a confused rookie piped up.

“Lambo? Like the car?”

The veterans were flabbergasted. Detroit’s second-round pick, Mississippi State corner Darius Slay, didn’t know what Lambeau Field was. He thought they were talking about a Lamborghini, the luxury car.

“I knew what a Lambo was, but I didn’t know it was Green Bay’s stadium. They said, ‘Man, that’s the stadium!’ I said, ‘Oh man . . .’ ”

The tale was relayed to defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham, who was not in the room. All “Gunn” could do was laugh: The rookie has a lot to learn about the NFL but knows just about everything about playing the game. “If you talk to him about football, he was really well-coached,” Cunningham says. “This kid knew the game coming in. I kept quizzing him. He knew things that a lot of coaches don’t know.

it is funny. But is sort of reminds me of when someone had to explain to Favre what nickle and dime coverage meant. How can they not know?
