GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Despite near zero degree temperatures, hundreds of Packers fans rallied in downtown Green Bay Friday as the team prepares for the NFC Championship Game.

Fans enjoyed music, fun and plenty of Packers camaraderie in front of the courthouse on Walnut Street.

"One pound of cheese for every point we beat them on!" exclaimed Mayor Jim Schmitt.

Schmitt laid out the stakes in his bet against Chicago's Mayor - before an energetic dance to the Village People's "YMCA."

Hand-made signs drew honks from passing vehicles, while some teddy bears took abuse from fans.

Even Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy joined in on the fun.

"We're going to go down to Chicago, win the Halas trophy and then get the Lombardi trophy," Murphy announced to the crowd, according to FOX 11.

There was one slight disturbance during the rally.

"No bears may freely move about this county," a local judge told a man dressed in a bear outfit and wearing a Chicago Bears jersey.

"I now find you guilty," said the judge.

The crowd cheered when the offender agreed to repent and become a Packers fan.

Packers Gameday begins at Noon Sunday on 97.5/1360 News Talk WTAQ, with kickoff set for 2 p.m.
