The Packers opened the doors to the Atrium about 9:30 a.m., but at least one fan told a Press-Gazette Media reporter she had been waiting outside since 10 p.m. Tuesday. At 7 a.m., it was about minus-5 degrees.
The event begins at 11 a.m. Driver is expected to speak from prepared remarks, as are Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, General Manager Ted Thompson and Coach Mike McCarthy.
A handful of current Packers players are at the event, including center Evan Dietrich-Smith, punter Tim Masthay and wide receiver Jordy Nelson.
Gov. Scott Walker says Driver personally called him to invite him to his retirement celebration at Lambeau Field.
Walker is sporting a Packers tie for the event. He spoke about it Wednesday morning during a speech at a meeting of the Wisconsin Counties Association.
Walker says he was happy to accept Driver's invitation to attend the event. And he says if he didn't, “My 17-year-old would have killed me.”
