Donald Driver Retires

Sportswriters commonly say that no professional sports team means more to their fans than the Green Bay Packers.

Today, while covering Donald Driver’s retirement ceremony at Lambeau Field, I was struck by the emotion from Driver, his coaches, teammates and, most of all, his fans.

Over a thousand fans waited over an hour in sub-zero weather just to get a chance to see him announce his retirement. Many people in the audience teared up at various points during the ceremony, which was something I definitely didn’t expect. The emotion of the fans led to one of my favorite photos of the day, when Driver walked along the rope line to greet his fans. I thought their expression while they embraced him was truly genuine.

Here’s a small collection of some of my other favorites from the day. To see the whole gallery, click here.
