GREEN BAY, Wis. — One of the traditions connecting the Green Bay Packers and their fans is an annual slogan painted on a fence across from Lambeau Field.

The slogan goes up on Fred Harrsch's fence just before the Packers start the regular season. The fence is even on Green Bay's historical sites list. It's been around since 1984.

Packers President Mark Murphy shows up with a paintbrush when it's time for another slogan — as it was on Monday. He saysthe fence is part of the cultural of the Packers organization.

This year, the slogan is a nod to a rookie who grew up in the South, Ha-Ha Clinton Dix. WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1ugmSd5 ) says that when the paint dried, the fence read "Welcome to the Frozen Tundra Ha-Ha, Ho-Ho, He-He."
