Before the roar of 80,000 Packers fans fills Lambeau Field for game one of the regular season, a much more intimate crowd gathers across the street.
Every day there is an open-to-the-public training camp practice, one can expect to see about 2,000 fans soaking in all things Packers. The access to heroes is extraordinary. The players riding kids' bikes to and from practice - the most unique aspect of any training camp, anywhere.
In Green Bay, the fans connection to the players is unlike any in the world of sports. I spent a couple days at camp immersing myself in the action off the field.
