With members of the Packer team that played in the original game looking on and the weather hovering well above that game’s -13 mark, Ice Bowl II took on a much warmer tone yesterday.
Cowboy fans sauntered around Lambeau, mingling happily with their Packer brethren, mugging for pre-game pics and trading good-natured barbs.
The similarities between the two games abounded — the icy bleacher seats, the legendary quarterbacks, the one-yard, goal-line plays that inspired endless post-game chatter.
But there were differences as well. The field itself, though still the original hallowed ground, enjoyed an elegant upgrade, while fans dressed in a decidedly less sophisticated manner, with trench coats and bowler hats giving way to puffy coats and pelts.
Enjoy these pictures of a great game and Go Pack Go!!
