ATLANTA — The Packers are getting set to take on the Falcons in the NFC Championship game on Sunday, January 22nd. A green and gold pep rally was held at the Park Tavern in Piedmont Park on Saturday, January 21st.

Fans have really stepped up. The pep rally — pure Packers mania!

“It is insane! I haven’t been around this many Packers fans since a game,” said Alex Wantoch.

The few Falcons fans showing face at the rally had nothing on the green and gold.

“We’re the best fans in the NFL,” said a Packers fan.


Bobby Anderson may be at the top of that fan list.

“I’ve been doing this for 10 years,” said Anderson.

Born in Madison, Anderson has been a cheesehead since birth and now that he lives in Atlanta, he makes sure his Packers pride is known everywhere he goes.

Everyone was sporting their Packers best on Saturday.

“Super Bowl Championship hat signed by Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and Greg Jennings,” said a Packers fan.

The fans were pumped up — hoping for a win come Sunday.

“It’s been absolute fun, we came out, we can’t wait for the game tomorrow. All we’ve been talking about is rooting for the Packers. They think Rodgers is unstoppable and I have to agree with that,” said a Packers fan.
