SAN FRANCISCO (WITI) -- Everyone has their own reason for seeing a game in person. Some love the atmosphere that only a raucous stadium can provide, some feel closer to the team if they're in the same venue.

For Heidi Staats of Waukesha, it was a chance to see her younger brother, Wayne. After finishing graduate school at MIT, Wayne Staats moved to the San Francisco area and Heidi already had business meetings out here all next week.

After making some calls and sweet-talking the right people, Heidi scored a set of tickets to the game. They were pretty high up and clearly outnumbered but happy for the time together. The bonus for Wayne? It was actually his first Packers game in any venue.
