What color is this Green Bay Packers barn? October 7, 2012

TRAVELING HOME from northeastern Wisconsin this afternoon while the Green Bay Packers were playing the Indianapolis Colts, I spotted this barn along Wisconsin Highway 10 near the New London exit.

The barn owner was paying homage to Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers with the message of “#12 is #1.” My husband told me that since I am clueless as to nearly anything regarding football except that Wisconsinites are crazy about their Packers.

Now, how crazy are they? I’ll let you decide. One of these barn photos shows the actual color of the barn. Which is it? You decide by casting your vote via a comment.


CHOICE #1: Is the barn painted Green Bay Packers green?

CHOICE #2: Is the barn painted Green Bay Packers gold?

CHOICE #3: Is the barn painted barn red?

    If I remember correctly, I believe it is Choice#3, red. I drive by this barn occasionally when I go out to interpret at the hospital/clinic in New London. Before, it used to say #12=3 x #4 (Brett Favre’s jersey number). 🙂

      Hmmmmmm. But you’re not sure on the color. I will reveal the answer after I get more votes. Let’s cast your ballots, readers. Interesting that the message used to reference Brett Favre.

    I’m hoping that it’s red. 🙂 It is a very cool barn, though, no matter the true color!

    • Audrey Kletscher Helbling Says:

      Alright. That’s two votes for red.

      I totally agree about it being a cool barn, no matter the color. Wisconsin has so many beautiful barns.
