DALLAS - Preparations are underway for the Packers' team hotel in Dallas as Green Bay is getting ready for the Super Bowl.
"The contract was in place about two or three years, ago, but we really started gearing up, probably, a year ago, when we sent two of our folks down to Miami (site of Super Bowl XLIV) to kind of oversee how the NFC team hotel is working down there," said Casperson.
"We started doing our homework about a year ago."
And yes, for the Packers, that includes cheese.
"We anticipate a lot more than probably if the other team (Bears) made it," claimed Casperson.
They also have to prepare for the huge steps involved in take care of security for a Super Bowl team, but with lots of NFL help.
"They have it down to a science. They know what they need, and they do a great job, whether it be the organizing of when the buses are coming and going or everything else."
