If you’re looking for something to wash down all that cheese at Lambeau on Saturday, it may have to be water. Football fans attending the Packers-Vikings match up this weekend will not be allowed to purchase alcohol after halftime. The decision to stop sales halfway through the game (as opposed to after the third quarter) comes as part of an attempt to curb some of the inappropriate behavior often displayed by both parties of this long-standing rivalry. The fact that the game is scheduled in the evening is also a factor, as officials note that night games are notoriously rowdier. While the alcohol may stop after halftime, undoubtedly the jeering, heckling, and face paint won’t fade until long after the final touchdown.
