5:13 pm
what's going on there. uh sure. this is a pep rally right in a building in the parking lot of lambeau field. it's really been a party here now. 24 hours until kickoff, and fans here are ready to go. really? mostly it's been kind of a sea of green and gold. i'll show you but we have spotted some red earlier we saw a fan in a nick bosa jersey in the parking lot, and even some 49ers fans who came from california, braving it in here for the pep rally. their main observation like we were just talking about is it's cold. i think windshield when i checked earlier was about four degrees, but they also talked about how chill and easy going to atmosphere isn't here having no trouble making friends here, i'll let you listen to what one 49ers man who came from california told me earlier. yeah, they're nice. yeah very nice. everybody has been offering his drinks and everything. two blocks have you been to live for the first time
5:14 pm
being in green bay? lambeau? it's freezing out here. now this pep rally has had activities. games prizes. people writing down where they came from and taking pictures, so we've seen people from all over really from north dakota to arizona, even england and like i said some fans from california to so everyone really just having a good time out here. yeah, and the team were worried about how they're going to perform on that field knows, though some of them haven't played in those types of conditions before, but are some of the bay area fans are they able to withstand it? or they layer properly as you can tell us someone that lives in that area? are they properly dressed for this type of weapon? but it's something you have to get used to rights. all of us are pretty used to wearing a jacket. i've just seen 49ers fans and jerseys, so maybe a little bit cold in that way, but one told me one fan told me that they hoped that the cold weather would work as an advantage for the 49ers so something we will all wait and see you tomorrow
5:15 pm
we'll see. one of my first big snowstorms was in wisconsin. oh boy. all right. thank you so much. madeline miller reporting first live at lambeau field. madeline. thank you so much for fans heading to playoff games or sending a pretty penny or spending a pretty penny ktvu james torres explorers. exactly how much it costs to be a faithful to the bay on the road. the san francisco 49 ers entered the post season as the number six seed, so you probably weren't seeing any playoff games here at levi stadium. but if you wanted to watch them in playoff contention, not only are you paying for that expensive game ticket but you're probably also racking up hundreds of dollars in travel expenses to order confirmation of the seats. ross van prag saw the san francisco 49 ers in arlington, texas, the wild card playoff round against the dallas cowboys. i hate the cowboys more than any other team in the league, seeing the game winning plays in person, he says , was worth every dollar spent flights. 6 25. i believe rooms came about 200 bucks for three nights there and dave dave tickets for about 4 50 each he
5:16 pm
and his family through down and dallas spending about $1500, a person so rocked the depo jersey for this game. he bought airline tickets to green bay that night, a price tag of about $650, but family members called inaudible . once they kind of get to know who we're playing, they kind of jack up the price a little bit, they slowly go down until about mid week. travel experts say. that is exactly the play of airlines if there is a high profile event in a city expect to see demand and prices go up like you would during the holidays. that rate jumps higher in smaller cities like green bay , compared to larger cities like dallas. there's just generally more competition to play with when it comes to a city like dallas, and therefore although prices will spike on a high profile day like a playoff game, it's the pricing is simply not going to be as inflated. as a green bay, wisconsin, where you have fewer flights. in some cases, airlines are not flying into green bay specifically, but whatever the price tag, some of the faithful will go for it.
5:17 pm
i've never been to a 49ers playoff game would be my very first one. that's right. it's worth every penny. troy halter is a longtime fan driving to green bay from minneapolis, with tickets included he's budgeting about $800 and to sack some of the expenses. he's driving to lambeau field in the morning and driving home after the game. the hotels are booked. i mean, you can't find anything. unless if you're going to pay a premium price, a quick google search in green bay shows you would likely spend 2 to $300 a night if you book today, searching appleton about 30 minutes away from lambeau. and you can book three or four star hotels from much cheaper. with playoff games. you can only really plan to travel about a week in advance, almost guaranteeing your wallets will want to throw a flag. give you an average fan. you're going to find a way to justify the cost and find a way to make the cost of work for you. but for anyone on the fence about going to a playoff game in the future the experience, fans say, always over budget it will be worth
5:18 pm
every dollar. just make sure you count in, like all the cost of food and ubers and rental car because that stuff adds up quick. i'm james torres, ktvu, fox two news. and to save money, travel experts say. try to book your return flight on a tuesday or wednesday. instead of a sunday or monday. you can usually spend around $150 on standing room only at most away playoff games and when it comes to hotels book is earliest possible covid protocols give you more flexibility on penalties in case you have to cancel ktvu facts to his home for everything. 49ers our pregame coverage begins at 4 30 tomorrow. and stay with us for special ktvu postgame show. vice president kamala harris returned to california this afternoon, the vp announcing hundreds of millions of dollars in federal help to help the state recover from wildfires and battle future ones after a devastating wildfire season throughout the west administration has made this one of its priorities are political reporter greg lee joins us now live with a look at

5:41 pm
trauma. so that's basically my goal is to reach out to the parents. um because the problems need have also you described about turning your passion for football into your passion for this, and that that stems from the fact that you couldn't find a therapist that understood what you were going through. growing up here like the only way you think you could be a successful is whether you are entertainer or sports player, you know, so i took that that rolled on through my whole life, basically. um um . but the thing that really changed me, it's like my passion for football currently overseas , and i was able to see her. you know, a different reality. you know that that we're not usually exposed to hear i got into this work and you know, i passed that message to like, you know, let them know, like there is more possibilities to, uh to life, then. what d c shows you what would be your message to people ? you know, to men who look like
5:42 pm
you about the importance of taking care of the whole self, including the mind a lot of times we, you know, as black men we take on a lot of a lot of traumatizing. situations and, you know, tough situations and you know they tell us, you know, don't cry about it and you know, don't be, you know, don't be scared, but you know the and internally that's building up negative things that can manifest into you know. worst things that can happen in reality. um and, um, we if we take the time to process to relieve those things will be better equipped to take on the day to day of being a black person being a black man in the city of oakland, where we are. these are some of the same traumas that young people, especially young people of color are experiencing. so what would you say to others like you about creating safe spaces for these conversations? i would say to people in my position to really confront some of the normal
5:43 pm
practices in this world and to see beyond what already exists. sharing financial capital, social capital and inconveniencing ourselves to serve well is fundamentally important. i was looking for places that i can confined in someone, and i was always getting that's turned on me so basically trying to find someone who really you know, care if we have more comfortable, comforting environments, then folks can come out as themselves and really flourish. as you know, as humans, you know, and we have more of these spaces. more folks will have the capacity to do that. for more voices for change content. you can go to our website ktvu dot com and search voices for change and a reminder of the monthly show will return for its third
