GREEN BAY - Dedicated Green Bay Packers fans lined up at Lambeau Field's box office in sub-zero temperatures today... but not for Packers tickets...

They wanted to get their hands on free tickets to Donald Driver's retirement announcement.

The all-time leading receiver will make his exit from football official next Wednesday at an event at the stadium.

"They were lined up from the Oneida entrance from the ticket booth all the way to the next entrance which I think is the Bellin Health and around the corner," fan Mark Lubke said.

It took just under 15 minutes for fans to get all one-thousand tickets.

Some fans waited in line all night for the tickets. Each fan could get up to four of them.
