Packers Fans in Mexico

While in Mexico city earlier this year, I noticed a Packers fan riding in the back of Mexican truck in front of us as we approached a toll booth. Photos are below. I hear a lot of people saying that the performance of the Packers has been going south. I guess this is more proof. (Click to enlarge.)

Here in Appleton, it's amazing how seriously people take the Green Bay Packers. It goes far beyond a few jackets and sweaters with Packers logos. Multiple homes are painted in the green and yellow of the team, yard ornaments highlight the Packers, some vehicles are painted in Packers colors, and even Appleton fire hydrants are often green and yellow. It's serious stuff. It's a great team with a proud history, and the most loyal fans on earth. For those who weren't weaned on the Packers, it takes a little getting used to, but it's one more colorful aspect of Appleton (just 30 minutes south of Green Bay).
