Pilgrimage

By: Seth Mueller

In the Islam faith, Muslims, those able to make the trip, are encouraged to journey to Mecca at least once in their lifetime. Christian's plan pilgrimages to the holy land, locations such as Bethlehem, and points of interest mentioned in the Old Testament. Elvis fans travel to Graceland and Harley enthusiasts meet at Sturgis once a year. Even communists are told to visit the grave sites of Mao and Lenin. Yesterday was the day that I fulfilled my "hajj" to historic Lambeau Field. I propose that every cheesehead must either: go on the Lambeau Field stadium tour, visit the Packer Hall of Fame, or attend a game before they die. The tour was one of the most humbling experience I've had in my entire life. Standing against the walls that have supported the famous Lambeau leap and walking down the tunnel out onto the field were amazing. The Hall of Fame was another great experience. The walls are adorned with one hundred years of Packers' history. Everything from a statue representation of the sneak from the Ice Bowl and Vince Lombardi's office are here. At the end of the Hall you are rewarded with the two World Championship Game Trophies and the Vince Lombardi Trophy from '97. All-in-all The Packers are completely awesome.
