Much has changed since Dec. 31, 1967. When the crew scheduled to work the
NFL championship game awoke in Green Bay, Wis., that morning, they knew
they were woefully unprepared for working in cold weather and air
temperatures that would dip to minus-15. A last-minute trip to a
sporting goods store allowed the officials to buy long underwear, gloves
and other apparel they hadn't packed. Still, they shivered and quaked
as the wind whipped through Lambeau Field in a game that has become
known as the Ice Bowl.
