I don't know how many Panther fans made the trip to Green Bay. But even if they don't like the game, they can't complain about the atmosphere. The best fans in the NFL fill the bleachers at Lambeau Field and the bars, restaurants and igloos around it.
There are several qualities about Packer fans I admire. They care, and they don't care who knows it. The percentage of G (for Green Bay) stickers to residents is as high in Green Bay as the percentage of G (for Georgia) stickers is in Athens. Maybe Green Bay's percentage is higher after Georgia's loss Saturday to Georgia Tech.
Packer fans don't hate because you come from a different city or cheer for a different team. Although they desperately want their team to win, they also want to have a good time, and they don't mind if you have one, too. At some of the massive sports bars near the stadium, they'll offer you a seat at one of their crowded tables. And as much as they want to talk about their team, they want to ask about yours.
Lambeau, even the retooled edition, is still the rare stadium you don't enter right away. You stand outside, your layers of clothing keeping you warm, and admire it. You think of all that has gone on there. And then you think, and I'm going in.
So Green Bay fans are No. 1. I'd rank Pittsburgh's a clear No. 2. Third? I don't know. There are several contenders, but none of them break from the pack the way fans of the Packers and Steelers do.
