Jordy Nelson, the Six Year Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver

Do you know that Jordy Nelson, wide receiver of the Green Bay Packers, has played in more sports than just football? Jordy Nelson, born in Manhattan, Kansas, has won a national championship for a 400 meter run at age ten. In high school he played basketball and set the record for blocks (161), steals (225), and assists (325). In Kansas on February 17, 2011, was Jordy Nelson Day. His current family is a wife and four year old son. The majority of Jordy Nelson's life has been interesting and eventful.

Jordy Nelson was drafted in 2008. His first year playing he had two touchdown catches, and just last year he had thirteen touchdown catches. In total in all his six years of playing he has played with the Green Bay Packers.

On December 28, 2014, Jordy Nelson broke nineteen year old single season receiving yards record of 1,497 yards with over 1,500 yards. In that whole season he had ninety-eight catches. If you combined Jordy Nelson's and Randall Cobb's total yards there would be a total of 2,866 yards, and if you combine their touchdowns there would be twenty-five total touchdowns.

Lambeau Field, Hosting the Ice Bowl

Did you see the Packers play in the "Ice Bowl?" It was on December 31, 2014. The reason it was nicknamed the "Ice Bowl" is because it was -13 degrees out with a 48 degree wind chill. The game itself was the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field competing against the home team, the Green Bay Packers. Despite the freezing cold temperature the Packers scored the game winning touchdown with 30 seconds left in the game. Lee Pinchard, age 11, said, "I could care less about what happened. It was SO cold I just wanted to get out of there!"

When the stadium was first built it wasn't called Lambeau Field, it was called City Stadium. City Stadium opened up in 1957, eleven years before the "Ice Bowl."City Stadium was renamed Lambeau Field after Earl Louis Lambeau, the founder of the Green Bay Packers, died on June 1, 1965.

Lambeau Field is in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Lambeau Field was built for and is famous for hosting home games for the NFL (National Football League). After a $130,000,000 or $130 million renovation it can now hold up to 80,978 people.
