    Talk about depressing...

    Just saw the Vikings/Packers game from Nov. of 2000, in Lambeau, on NFL Network (on their "Greatest 4th Quarters" show). That's the game that Antonio Freeman caught the ball off his back and got up and ran the ball in for a TD for a 26-20 Packer overtime victory. AND that was my first (and so far ONLY) trip to Lambeau for a game.

    Here are some pictures we took before and during the game...

    I don't know if I could handle being IN green bay after a loss, it was bad enough when I was at the dome and we lost to the packers

    The worst part about that loss is a win would've given us homefield for the playoffs.
    Oh well!

    Yes, it was 2000, I believe they finished the renovation a year or two later.

    Yeah, and if my memory is correct, Dishman was cut right after that game. What a maroon. What an ignoranamus!

    That game sucked.
    I was in Mpls at a conference watching with some Packer fans and I lost my bets and had to buy rounds all night.
