I have always been fascinated with the theories of Stonehenge. I can clearly remember first learning about pilgrimages to Mecca in an early social studies class. I was fortunate enough to spend some time in Italy and visit the Colosseum. Each of these places are representations of the axis mundi and all have fascinated me for ages.
I am not terribly interested in football, but the last few years working for the City of Green Bay has given me special insight into the near religious fervor surrounding the Packers and the hallowed ground of Lambeau Field. Maybe because I see past the football, it is hard to ignore what must have been intentional mythic religiosity in the design of Lambeau.
