Nestled inside Sunday’s frantic Packers win over the Lions was this minor gem:
A 15-year-old Green Bay fan bopping around Lambeau Field during a timeout, running free and flapping his wings before he was stopped cold by Packers LB Brad Jones.
“I don’t understand how 10 security guards can’t catch one little kid,” Jones told FOX Sports Wisconsin this week. “Really, I was just cold. It’s all good.”
Jones claimed to hear muffled cries of joy coming from the boy as he was deep-sixed into the frozen tundra.
“I think he was still laughing,” Jones said. “I think I could still hear him. Maybe not. I was just happy to get the game back going again.”
Here’s where the laughter ceased for the upstart who was handcuffed and turned over to his mother: Despite being characterized by authorities as “completely sober,” he is “no longer welcome at Lambeau Field,” police told the Appleton Post-Crescent.
Learn from this, young ones.
