For last Saturday’s semifinal game against Winona, the crowd was gathering more than an hour in advance of the 7 p.m. tip. This video is from the lobby outside of Packer Gym at about 6:10, as the line of fans extended out the doors of the building and down the block. The second part of it is from five minutes before the tip, as the gym is packed except for a few seats in the balcony section. The final part is from the introduction of the starting lineup.
The Packers were undefeated at home this year, so we’re counting on Packer fans to create a homey environment tomorrow at Mayo Civic Center. Sign up by noon today if you want to ride on the fan bus.
Update: Due to popular demand, we’ve added another student bus, so we’re extending the sign-up time. There’s still some room on the adult bus, too. Download and print the forms and get them to the AHS Activities Office by Friday afternoon.
