It’s difficult to grasp just what one million looks like, but if you ask Noah Bolton of Spring Green, he will tell you that one million looks just like him.
That’s because this week he was the one-millionth visitor to have gone through the Lambeau Field stadium tours. The last time he took the tour, it was 10 years ago. This time he brought his girlfriend.
Little did they know that they were about to become celebrities – at least among the Packers Hall of Fame officials who treated him to a giant Packers cupcake and a custom jersey that included “Tour 1M Fan” as his nameplate.
Not only that, but he was presented a lifetime pass to the stadium tours and given a free lunch at Curley’s Pub. In addition, his picture will be prominently displayed so that the next million visitors to the tour can see his face.
According to packers.com, here is what Bolton had to say about the entire experience:
“I was really surprised by this whole thing. When she [Krissy Zegers, Hall of Fame and Stadium Tours manager] first said it, I wasn’t sure if she was serious or not. I’m definitely going to come take a tour every time I’m up here now. We were planning on coming up here yesterday, but I’m really glad we waited until today.”
If you haven’t taken a tour of Lambeau Field, it’s something that every Packers fans should enjoy at least once in a lifetime, if not several times. Take a walk through the Hall of Fame – it’s also an experience that won’t soon be forgotten.
Bolton said that the first person he would share his news with would be his brother, who is a die-hard Chicago Bears fan.
“I’m definitely going to brag about it. I’d like to see them do something like this in Chicago. I bet they don’t have that.”
Here’s a description of The Legendary Lambeau Experience:
A two-hour walking tour, is back for this year’s training camp. The tour, available beginning July 26 through Aug. 27, features stops that are not included on the standard stadium tour, including a look at the New South End. Included in the tour is an admission pass to the Packers Hall of Fame, a snack on the tour and a Packers souvenir. The tour is $38 for ages 12 and older and $19 for ages 11 and younger. Please call the Hall of Fame for exact times at 920-569-7512 (press option 1). Fans should please note that public access to the inside of Lambeau Field is available only on a stadium tour.
Take the entire family. As Bolton will tell you, a million others already have done so.
