Packers fans reflect on 100 seasons of football

GREEN BAY, Wis. - At Lambeau Field, the memories span decades.

Some fans look back on the 1960's.

"Ray Nitshcke, Jim Taylor, Paul Horning," fan Bill Strutz said. "That was when i was in high school."

Other fans remember the 90's and today.

"For sure Brett Favre," fan Susan Komendera said. "Best quarterback of all time in my opinion."

They're memories of Lambeau that Komendera has only seen on TV - until now.

"It's a little bit overwhelming to be here," Komendera said. "It's a dream come true for sure. Waited a long time to get here."

She's been a Packers fan since the days of Starr. Now that she's in Green Bay, Susan sees what's kept the Packers here since the days of Curly Lambeau.

"The town for sure," she said. "You see everybody's house is painted green, yellow, it's just really a football town here. They love their packers."

"It's all about fans, loyalty, what you have for this town and what you have for the team," fan Joseph Lundy said.

Fans are supporting a team that's given them 100 years of memories. Fans say with that 100th season now here they have high expectations for the green and gold. They say they'd love to see that Lombardi trophy brought back home.
