Packie,
First off if your gonna quote me get it right, espeially sense you are so particular about other quoting you.
Now I DID say that I (note the I) did not go to the game because of the extreme temp. being a health risk. I DID NOT say all fans did not goo because of this reason, but I'm sure many did.

Now since you apparantly do not know what wind chill is and can do I thought you might need a little classroom help.

The wind-chill temperature is a measure of relative discomfort due to combined cold and wind. It was developed by Siple and Passel (1941) and is based on physiological studies of the rate of heat loss for various combinations of ambient temperature and wind speed. The wind-chill temperature equals the actual air temperature when the wind speed is 4 mph or less. At higher wind speeds, the wind-chill temperature is lower than the air temperature and measures the increased cold stress and discomfort associated with wind.

The effects of wind-chill depend strongly on the amount of clothing and other protection worn as well as on age, health, and body characteristics. Wind-chill temperatures near or below 0 F indicate that there is a risk of frostbite or other injury to exposed flesh,at -15 to -20 degrees any exposed flesh can freeze in approx 1 minute.

Now you might not consider that a health risk, but most logical and sane people would. So does that mean in order to be a great fan you must be stupid? well then I guess you are the greatest Packer fan ever.
