Reunions of Champions

Anyone old enough to remember the Green Bay Packers of the 1960s, knows there were five National Football League championships in seven years, a feat unmatched to this day and 10 team members and their coach, the late Vince Lombardi, all made it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Players from those glory years are closer now and enjoy regular reunions at which they cheer a re-incarnation of their triumphs in a new era and new team of Packers. No one is prouder of the new Packers than the old Packers. Green Bay, Wisconsin, the smallest city in major sports sells out every game (60,000) of the only publicly owned, non-profit big-league sports franchise in the US.
