Border Battle: Packers vs Vikings

On Sun­day, Decem­ber 2 the Yel­low­jacket Activ­ity Crew (YAC), set up a flat screen T.V. for fans to come and enjoy the clas­sic bor­der bat­tle between the Vikings and the Pack­ers. Chelsey Carl­son and Teri Cadeau, YAC’s spe­cial event coor­di­na­tors, had been plan­ning this event for a month before the day of the game. Carl­son said that YAC has been hold­ing this event for at least three years now when the two teams play each other.

A foot­ball toss was held dur­ing half-time with two shirts as prizes; one Green Bay Pack­ers shirt and one Min­nesota Vikings shirt.

Many stu­dents were com­ing and going through­out the game.  Look­ing around the room, most of the stu­dents hap­pened to be Pack­ers fan.

A stu­dent named Sarah Hol­land said that she loves the Green Bay Pack­ers because her dad is a really big Pack­ers fan so she’s grown up watch­ing her dad sup­port the Pack­ers and throw­ing Packer par­ties; not to men­tion her boyfriend is from Green Bay as well. Hol­land says that she’s just stick­ing with the fam­ily team and adds, “Go Pack Go!”

Ariel John­son, a stu­dent at UWS and a mem­ber of YAC, is a proud fan of the Min­nesota Vikings. Ariel says that she’s a Vikings fan because she has really close friends who are Vikings fans and it rubbed off on her.

The Pack­ers vs. Vikings game event was a way to get stu­dents together to watch some­thing that inter­ests them dur­ing this time of the sea­son. Next, YAC plans to throw a Super­bowl party in February.

The Min­nesota Vikings and Green Bay Pack­ers went head to head Sun­day after­noon at the Lam­beau Field.  The Vikings lead the way in the first two quar­ters, but then the Pack­ers pulled ahead in time to win the game. Pack­ers won 23–14.  The two teams will meet once again for another bor­der bat­tle, this time on the Vikings home turf. The game is Decem­ber 30.
