THIS IS FOOTBALL WEATHER!!!
According to WeAreGreenBay.com, the light snow “will gradually come to an end through the afternoon hours.”
“Additional snowfall accumulation should stay under and inch across the area. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a blustery north wind developing at 10-20 mph. Highs will be in the mid to upper 30s. Other than a few flurries, accumulating snow is not expected at Lambeau Field when the Packers play host to the Seahawks this afternoon.”
Well, that was fun while it lasted.
As far as the game goes, it is still going to be painfully cold for everybody involved, which includes the return of Aaron Rodgers, who missed the team’s Week 9 game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to Covid-19 protocols. He will return after finishing the mandatory 10-day quarantine period required for unvaccinated players who test positive for the virus. The Chiefs defeated the Packers 13-7.
The 37-year-old drew criticism for misleading reporters after announcing in August he was “immunized” when asked if he was vaccinated against the coronavirus.
In the wake of his positive test, he said on “The Pat McAfee Show” he was unvaccinated because he has an allergy to an ingredient in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and was scared about the possible side effects from the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. He also stated he got advice podcast host Joe Rogan.
On his next appearance on the show, Rodgers took “full responsibility” for his earlier comments.
“I shared an opinion that is polarizing, I get it. I misled some people about my status, which I take full responsibility of those comments,” he said.
“I understand that this issue, in general, is very charging to a lot of people because we are talking about public health. I totally respect that,” Rodgers said Tuesday. “I made a decision that was in the best interest based on consulting with my doctors. And I understand that not everybody is going to understand that necessarily. But I respect everybody’s opinion.”
He added “in the end, I have to stay true to who I am and what I’m about. And I stand behind the things that I said.”
