The Green Bay Packers have announced that "zero tolerance" will be especially intolerant, and they're cutting off alcohol sales much earlier than usual on Saturday night.

Packers security, can you not at least make an exception for the Packers Bikini Girls?

The Packers organization has announced they're stepping up security and curtailing alcohol sales for Saturday night's NFC Wild Card game, according to a report in the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. The report is written by a reporter named "Georgia Pabst". That is just so adorably Milwaukee.

Of particular importance to Packers fans -- alcohol sales will be cut off at the beginning of the third quarter. Alcohol sales are normally cut off at the beginning of the fourth quarter at Lambeau Field.

The funny thing is, Green Bay residents own this team. They ought to be allowed to get as drunk as they want. You know fellow NFL owner Jim Irsay would never stand for this.

There are additional drawbacks to the Packers' early cut-off of alcohol sales at a playoff game. Should the Packers lose, we are less likely to see an amusing YouTube video of a drunken, sad Packers girl crying about sparkly nail polish on the way home.
