Lucky Fan Paints Lambeau Field End Zones

The grounds crew received a little help on Friday morning from Lynn West, a Hudson, Wis., native.

During Fan Fest in March, West's silent auction bid awarded her the chance to paint the letters in the Lambeau Field end zones.

"That's the most amazing feeling," said West, dressed in a No. 36 LeRoy Butler jersey and Packers hat, as she painted the "B" in Bay.

Her husband, friend and parents took turns painting. Her parents journeyed up from Cape Coral, Fla.

The giddy troop took turns rubbing footballs into the yellow lettering. Lynn's brother made sure to spray his Brett Favre jersey. Lynn wore new, white shoes on Friday to soak up all the yellow.

"I want that on everything that goes home with me," she said.

According to Fields Manager Allen Johnson, the Packers had never allowed a fan to paint the end zones before.

The West family and friends painted neatly, staying within the lines of the lettering. But Johnson is not worried about losing his day job to Friday's guests.

"No," he said with a smile. "I'm really not."
