\ But Lambeau Field is what the NFL should be about in every city. It’s a college-type atmosphere in a college-size town but NFL-type prices ($159 for the Quality Inn, with a two-night minimum).\

\ The weekend-long party started Saturday night and kicked up again yesterday morning. In the breakfast room of the hotel at 7:15 a.m., Packer fans had Miller Lite with their scrambled eggs and hash browns.\

\ By 9:30 a.m. outside the stadium, bands were playing and the grills were cooking bratwursts and every other kind of delicacy.\

\ *Protesters with nothing better to do were handing out pamphlets labeled, “75 Years of Oppression - How the Washington ‘Redskins’ Institutionalize Racism.” Whatever. The name isn’t changing. Deal with it folks.\

\ *Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt, Jr., attended his first game of the season, jetting in last night after racing in Charlotte. He traveled with Packers fan and Wisconsin native Matt Kenseth.\

\ *Just like in Philadelphia earlier this season, the best way to get a crowd jacked up is by introducing the defensive starting lineup. The Packers did yesterday and the crowd was at a fever pitch. The Redskins, meanwhile, take the field “as a team” before home games. That’s fine if you’re the Patriots, not fine if you have no Super Bowl titles since 1992.
