Football is back...and that means all the spectacle that comes along with the big NFL games. 

Fireworks, Jet Flyovers, botched National Anthem lyrics with social outrage, and of course - People PARACHUTING into NFL stadiums.  

This is a jump done out of an airplane that I myself have jumped from at Skydive Milwaukee in East Troy, Wisconsin.  

You might be saying "Riggs - why don't YOU do that?"  

A couple of reasons.  These guys have THOUSANDS of skydives to their boot.  THOUSANDS.  I may have 500, and certainly have the ability to advance my skydiving license to do this - but I just don't have the finesse these guys have to land in a freaking stadium.

It takes a good amount of skill to fly a parachute.  Landing in an open airfield is one thing, but landing a stadium with 80,000 people - that's another story.  

These guys are the all Veteran Parachute team.  They jumped from our plane, we call it "Yankee".   When I say "Our" I mean the fine humans at Skydive Milwaukee in East Troy, Wisconsin. 

This is the video a couple weeks back on Packers Family Night, and this is what it looks like to parachute into Lambeau Field.  Enjoy!

Wouldn't you know it - one of the guys has a freaking WINDOW WORLD parachute!  What a small world!  

If you ever wanna skydive with me - I don't do the "tandem" thing where I'm strapped to you, someone else does that with MUCH more experience and WAY more skydives, but I CAN jump with you at the same time, take your pics, and record your video - even give you the HIGHEST five you've ever had in your life!  lol.  www.skydivemilwaukee.com 

Go Pack. 

Talk to you in the morning,
