The Veteran's Day Celebration You Didn't See

Quite a picture, huh? It's an aerial shot of Lambeau Field last November showing just part of the elaborate (and noble) demonstration created by the Green Bay Packers, veteran's organizations and thousands of football fans in honor of Veteran's Day.

Dramatic visuals. Emotionally moving. Absolutely great TV.

Except that the television audience of ESPN's Monday Night Football didn't see it.

They saw a commercial instead.

Ralph Aldrich sent over from Snopes the story behind this unfortunate omission. And, even if it's to see some of the other photos from the event, go on over.
