Packers devotee Chuck Todd admits he hasn't been to Lambeau yet

Chuck Todd's Sunday mornings revolve around his job at NBC News with Meet the Press. His Sunday afternoons revolve around the Green Bay Packers.

Yet this longtime Packers fan admits he has yet to enjoy a game at the Holy Grail of football: Lambeau Field.

"I have a confession to make: I’m a lifelong Packers fan who has never been to Lambeau Field," he admits in his guest column with MMQB.

"There are a lot of things I’m embarrassed about—the list is too long to get into now, but I’m sure plenty of you will remind me on Twitter!—but this one makes me blush the most. When folks find out, they are usually stunned. Fellow Packers fans, especially, sometimes question my allegiance."

Todd swore his green and gold allegiance on 620 WTMJ back in January as a guest analyst of the team's playoff run when coming on the show now called "Scaffidi and Bilstad."

"My dad brainwashed me to be a Packers fan. My job is to brainwash my son to be a Packers fan. He has made the whole neighborhood notice ours is a Packers house," Todd said on the show.

"Chicago's the big city. You don't root for the big city," Todd said of his dad's words to him. Chuck grew up in the David Whitehurst quarterback era, one that was - to be kind - not as successful as the current quarter century renaissance of the Packers.

"Man, I earned my stripes."
