Here is a list of 25 old things that Lambeau Field is older than

Here is a list of 25 old things that Lambeau Field is older than

The Redskins will play at Lambeau Field this Sunday, a stadium that interim coach Bill Callahan respects and an environment rookie QB Dwayne Haskins can't wait to experience. 

Few places in sports, if any, are as revered as Lambeau Field. It has hosted some of the NFL's most iconic players and moments. It's a place every fan should try to visit. It's a legitimate American landmark. 

It's also super old.

The building, originally known as City Stadium, has existed since September 1957. That means it's more than 62 years old.

So — and this is for no real reason, so if you're looking for a real reason, sorry — here's a list of 25 old things that aren't as old as Lambeau Field:

1) Sprite

2) Nike

3) US ZIP codes

4) The movie Ben-Hur (which is apparently as long as The Irishman, but hopefully not as boring)

5) The Dallas Cowboys

6) Dwayne Haskins + Alex Smith (those two together are 57, so depending on the movie theater, they could combine to get a senior discount)

7) Simon Cowell (Lambeau Field is older but less grumpy)

8) Weather satellites (the first one was named TIROS-1 in case you were wondering, which you definitely weren't)

9) Barbie dolls

10) Big Macs (unrelated: Big Macs are delicious)

11) The Twilight Zone (sorry, Black Mirror is better)

12) Kmart stores

13) Michael Jordan

14) The Flintstones

15) George Clooney (yes, he's younger than Lambeau Field and also better at organizing complex casino heists)

16) Lava lamps (if you're buying a lava lamp in 2019, please seek help)

17) Hula hoops (if you're buying a hula hoop in 2019, please also seek help)

18) The Grammy Awards

19) Buffalo wings (imagine a world without Buffalo wings. NO. NEVER MIND. DON'T)

20) Hawaii's statehood

21) Computer mouses (regular mouses, meanwhile, are in fact older than Lambeau Field)

22) Etch a Sketch

23) Pull tabs on soda cans

24) Valium

25) Bump and run coverage 

In conclusion, Lambeau Field is old.

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

In the midst of the Pro Bowl being underway former Redskins’ defensive back DeAngelo Hall took a trip down memory lane. 

During Good Morning Football this week, the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP DeAngelo Hall said his favorite memory from the Pro Bowl wasn't exactly anything that happened on the football field.

You would think he would mention his impressive performance which included six tackles, an interception and a fumble returned for a touchdown. 

But no. His highlight of the day was winning a truck for his MVP performance. 

“I told my buddies going into it I wanted to buy a truck so I said hey, if I win this MVP I don't need to buy a truck so I called the shot ladies and gentlemen I really did," he said. 

It must have been a really special prize because to this day, he said, he still owns the truck.

You have to see this video of Daron Payne buying his mom a house

The Redskins drafted Daron Payne with the 13th overall pick in 2018, changing the big defensive lineman's life immediately. Making the NFL is a dream for many players, but going in the first round means even more. 

It means life-changing wealth, and for Payne, the ability to keep a promise to his mother. 

Not much needs to be added when a video tells the story, but it's worth noting some of the comments from Payne's Instagram page from other NFL players. 

Redskins DL Matt Ioannidis: "This is awesome! Congrats!"

Redskins DB Quinton Dunbar: "She was patient bro that’s everything ❤️"

Packers DE Preston Smith: "Bro that’s a blessing"

Redskins Director of Player Development Malcolm Blacken: "Man this is what it’s all about! 👊🏾👊🏾🔥"

Saints SS D.J. Swearinger: "Yeeeessssirrrr!!!! #congratsfoolie!!! That’s what it’s all about!! Being That Rock & Provider For The Love one!! ✊🏾"

Not the last, but maybe the best was former Redskins DL Ziggy Hood: "My guy I told myself I'm not crying on a sat morning, ✊🏾"

Payne has been one of the Redskins best players since he was drafted. In two years he's logged seven sacks and 112 tackles as a force in the middle of the team's defensive line.
