MILWAUKEE - Just days before a historic NFC Championship matchup, a few dozen Packers fans got to wish their heroes good luck.
"It's just the thrill of my life,” said Kathy Preston. “I've had a nervous stomach all day because I’m just so thrilled.”
The meet and greet took place at Russ Darrow Honda in Milwaukee. Fans got to offer good luck and advice to Packers players Greg Jennings and Nick Collins.
“I told them they got to keep on winning,” said Kathy’s husband David Preston.
Carrie Vollmer told Jennings and Collins "we told them we better win this weekend."
Collins and Jennings got the message loud and clear.
"We take it as another game, another opportunity, but the fans, they're jacked up. It's exciting,” Collins said.
The Packers players posed for pictures and even tossed a few beanbags. They're confident and relaxed, but Jennings says you can't overestimate what this rivalry means to the Bears, the Pack, and their fans. He knows this game is history.
"We know what it means to not only those guys, but the fans, and we're just trying to change a little bit and throw a little of our legacy on top of that and get to the Super Bowl," he said.
