Packers in our midst

By Bruce Felps

An overhead comment yesterday led to a phone call today to confirm the rumor contained in that overheard comment. See how that all goes full circle?

The call went to the media relations department at SMU, and the nice lady who answered the phone confirmed that, yes indeed, the Green Bay Packers arrive early next week or late this coming weekend to use the SMU football facilities as the Super Bowl contenders’ practice field.

Don’t know yet if those practices might be open to the public. I seriously doubt it, and just received the word from the  Mustangs’ assistant athletic director in charge of media relations that, no, the practices are off limits to anyone not affiliated with the Packers.

But between one of the two teams at the cusp of our community and all the reveling fans in town for the game who are expected to descend upon Greenville Avenue, East Dallas could reap a little business windfall.

Go Packers.
