Packer-Detroit Football Game & Will Farrell

Do you think celebrities pay to be on the sidelines at football games or are they invited.

Will Farrell was dressed in Packer winter clothing and was on the sidelines during the game. In the 3rd quarter people started figuring out who he was.

Just guessing, but probably Will Farrell told someone he wanted to attend a Packers game. That person got in touch with someone who got in touch with someone, etc, who talked to the Packers, and they said "here's your sideline pass."

If a team invites a celebrity, they're going to want something out of them, either an endorsement, or some kind of recognition during the game. Was he showcased on the big screen or anything?

Yea, I'm a 9yo girl football player who's been on the Dis for two years!

The first time I heard of this girl, I was traveling for business and saw an ESPN crawl talking about her. I told my wife my name was on ESPN and she didn't believe me.

He was only shown very briefly on TV (like 10 secs or less), but I don't know what happened at the stadium.

Back when 'SC football was huge Will Ferrell used to be on their sidelines too. He was pretty incognito, but everyone figured out it was him then to. I'm guessing they just give him a pass.

They showed him twice and the 2nd time was when the audience figured out who he was, and everyone had their cell phones out taking pictures. He turned around and was trying to pump up the fans, (like that needed to happen).
