Is the press box in Green Bay open?

    Seeing Joe Buck and Aikman in the broadcast booth, I wondered if our fellow writers are freezing their asses off in an open box.

    Broadcasters like the windows open for better acoustics in the mics.

    The glass is pretty thick, too. It's like watching the game through a viewing port at the Seaquarium.

    The glass is thick, but having covered some cold ones there, you still have to bundle up in conditions like this, especially if you're sitting in the front row by the window.

    Two 2002 games jump to mind for me: Minnesota at night when it was around 7 degrees (no wind though) and Buffalo during the day, when it was around 15 degrees with a gale coming out of the west. I had layers on in the press box and the walk to the locker rooms in the semi-exposed catwalk off the elevator can be chilly.

    So taking a whiz in the press pisser at Lambeau gives new meaning to the phrase "frozen rope?"

    I don't know about that, but one of my career highlights was taking a dump in the press box bathroom at Heinz Field.

    You've not lived till you use the unisex bathroom in the TV truck bay there.

    I take it that's a pretty special place?
