Packers lose NFC title game, but spirits remain high...

Packers fans are crazy. Period. I was on the home front in Appleton covering local reaction of the game as part of a story about cinemas in Wisconsin that are showing the games for large groups. As you can imagine, the NFL isn't happy about it among other things, but the fans love it. My personal feeling: the NFL is nothing without its fans... take too much control and you'll end up alienating them.

Here's a couple frames from the evening:
