The Weather Cuts The Packers Family Night Practice Short

I hadn't realized that this happened so often. The Green Bay Packers Family Night scrimmage (this year it's just a practice technically) was cut short due to the weather for the third time in the past four years. From Jason Wilde at ESPN Milwaukee:

"We need to look at the Farmer’s Almanac or something. This is unbelievable," McCarthy said. "You really feel bad for the fans. This is such a special evening for the families, the kids, the fireworks, the whole deal. Everybody looks forward to it. I don’t know what to say. It’s unbelievable.

"There’s really no opportunity to make up for the work that we had planned tonight. It’s unfortunate. This is the one practice – because technically it was a practice instead of a scrimmage – that you’re exposed to weather canceling it. Obviously, we have the Hutson Center that protects us from this situation. We’ll evaluate the little bit of film that we had."

Ahh, a true coach. He did think of the fans first, but then lamented the missed practice time because they couldn't move it inside once the thunderstorms rolled in.
