Haunted Hall of Fame?

As unbelievable as this sounds, I assure you it is 100% true.

Back in 2004 we had been renting space for our theater company. The building the space occupied was the site of the former Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame which had been recently moved to a more modern space in the atrium of the upgraded stadium. The space I am speaking of was the Hall of Fame’s first permanent facility and was formally dedicated on April 3,1976, by President Gerald R. Ford.

It consisted of a huge open space, and a large office. The bathrooms were located in an area on the other side of the building. In order to reach them we’d have to go through a long dark unused area which could be quite eerie, especially when it was very quiet and there were very few of us in the building. It was quite common for my husband and I to bring all the kids with us to the rehearsals since there was plenty of space to run around, play with all the props and costumes. It was endless fun for our 3 little ones as well as the children of all the cast members.

My middle son, who was 4 at the time, was always a little fearless dare devil and, shall I say, sensitive to the spirit world as many children are at that age. I was working in the office one evening and he came racing in a bit breathless. “Momma, there’s a man in the bathroom walking in circles. I said hi to him but he didn’t answer!”. Well, since our family was the only ones on the property at the time this was a bit alarming. So I took his had and we made our way through the dark path to the bathrooms. As we walked there he told me the man was wearing a black hoodie with the hood up and he had no feet even though he was going in circles. As we entered the bathroom there was a slight feeling of thickness in the air. The lights then proceeded to flicker on and off a number of times. It wasn’t scary really. It made me smile actually because I knew it was something paranormal, but it felt completely harmless. My son sad,”He was right there momma”, and pointed the the area in front of the sinks. I of course saw nothing but I assured my son all way okay and he should just go back and play with his brother and sister- not wanting to make a big deal about it. It was soon forgotten.

Months later, we were at a friend’s house and they had a very large Green Bay Packer memorial book on their coffee table, complete with many full page photographs. As we were paging through there was a photo of Vince Lombardi on the sidelines of a game wearing a black hoodie over his head. My son excitedly pointed to it and said, “Momma! That was the man in the bathroom at our work!”

Later, I came across an article that mentioned Vince’s wife. It talked about how, after he died she liked to spend time at the Hall of Fame because she felt his presence there and it gave her comfort. Kind of sweet to hear that she was able to feel her beloved Vince even after his passing. And how lovely that my son was able to “see” him albeit briefly, in a place that he obviously felt such pride about even after he left this plane.
