Section 117 at Lambeau Field can be a contentious place. Located directly behind the visitor’s bench, it generally hosts plenty of rowdy fans rooting against our beloved Packers.
While we’re normally aghast at such disloyalty, my sister Kathy and I have made it our mission to hospitably encourage peace, harmony, happiness, and …
