My Mom will be at the Super Bowl game.

She works for the Packers and will fly a charter flight out of Green Bay that morning with other employees. They will then be bussed to the the game. After the game they are bussed back to the airport and flown back to Green Bay. She was already told she needs to be at work Monday morning.

It is a quick turnaround but it is all paid for by the team. She does not get to bring anyone. Employees only for this trip, but still pretty awesome.

When the Packers lost the NFC championship game to the Giants, she was told along with a trip to the Super Bowl she would have gotten a Super Bowl ring (had they beat the Giants and the Pats). She has not heard anything about a possible ring this time. Let's hope they win and she does get a ring.

The Packers are a very classy organization. They expect lots from their employees but also treat them very well.

HOLY COW!!!


Dude, that is SO AWESOME!! Good for Mom!! My wife is "green and yellow" with jealousy! She is a huge Packers fan (I'm a Pats fan), she said she would be happy just being at the game.

If your Mom does get a ring (LETS GO PACKERS!) we would love to see a picture of it.

Shawn,
congrats to your mom! that is a very nice gesture for them to do for their employees. Darn tootie I would be at work on Monday if they took me and told me to be there.
Talk about a moral booster!
Hope she has a good time.

My father-in-law and his girlfriend are headed as well; the tickets were Christmas presents for him. They're from Dallas, so no skin in the game, but they're excited none-the-less.

Can't wait to see pics when/if they're available.
