You probably saw the NFL team flags being held by team player representatives Thursday night, but you probably had no idea who the players were that were holding them.
For the first time, 32 legendary NFL alumni, one representing each team, were part of the pregame celebration at Lambeau Field Thursday night.
The alumni held their team’s flag and formed a chute on the field with players representing the NFC on one side and AFC on the other.
You saw Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr walk through the gauntlet onto the field holding the Green Bay Packers flag followed by the Super Bowl XLV Champions running onto the field.
Following the introduction of the Packers, the 2010 championship year was unveiled on the interior stadium wall and celebrated with a brief fireworks display.
The team flags will be flown by each team at their stadium during their first home game.
