Lambeau Field is the site of some great games in the NFL, but a sad incident occurred at the stadium on Monday night. A man apparently committed suicide just outside the stadium around 7 p.m. local time. It is a sad situation and more details will surely come out about what happened that night.
Things like this remind you that there are more pressing things in life than sports. Although Lambeau has been the site of some great Green Bay Packers games, it still can’t do much more than host football games. The problems that happen in everyday life cannot always be washed away by the thrill of attending a sporting event.
I would imagine that the Packers will eventually release a statement about the incident, but I could be wrong on that. It happened near the atrium part of the stadium if anyone was wondering about the location.
Mental health issues are often over looked in our society and for no reason whatsoever. Some people are really struggling with issues, but are afraid to seek help. If you or someone you know is having issues, talk to someone. It may not seem like much, but it could do wonders.
This is the second time a self-inflicted gunshot wound has been reported near Lambeau in the last month or so. It is unfortunate that this ended up happening and my prayers are with the deceased and his loved ones. Hopefully some clarity can come out of this unfortunate situation from Monday.
