Lambeau Field Patriotic Display

OK   I never pass on those emails that say “Pass this on”  but for this one I’m making an exception. (Took place November 2011)

LAMBEAU FIELD

 Those who attended the game said it was extremely emotional to see the entire bowl of the stadium turn red, white and blue. It took 90 workers two weeks to get the entire colored card boards mounted under each seat.  Each piece of card board had eye slits in them so the fans could hold up the colored sheet and still see through the eye slits.  Every seat had to have the proper card, with no mistakes, to make this happen.
This is what ESPN failed to show you Monday night, Apparently, they thought their commercials were more important than showing this scene for about 5 seconds.

Forward this to as many people as you can so that they can see this incredible display!

Update: I noticed the (2011) date in the corner of one picture and decided to do some research.  The statement included with the pictures claimed that ESPN went to commercial instead of broadcasting this tribute to the national audience, that only those attending the game could see it.  And Snopes confirms that is true!

Vet Day Tribute

Claim:   Photographs show an NFL pre-game Veterans Day tribute not aired by ESPN.
