Glenzers celebrate 50 years together
There are probably few Green Bay Packers fans alive who don’t remember or know of the aptly named Ice Bowl played at Lambeau Field. For Holcombe residents Rick and Nancy Glenzer, the 1967 NFL championship game between the Packers and Dallas Cowboys is one they’ll never forget.
At a ceremony in Chicago, Ill., the couple tied the knot that New Year’s Eve, as the green and gold notched their third consecutive title Dec. 31, 1967. As with the sub zero game, the wedding didn’t go off without a few glitches.
Although his grandparents made the trip from their farm in Owen, Rick’s grandfather held up the nuptials while at a nearby motel.
“My grandfather caused the wedding to be late, because he wouldn’t leave,” said Rick. “He was listening to the game.”
