The 60 Yard Line is a comedy-drama based on a true story of a Packer fan, Ben Zagowski, and his best friend, a Bears’ fan, Nick Polano. The role of Ben is played by Ryan Churchill and the role of Nick is played by Nick Greco. Together Ben and Nick buy a house Lambeau Field’s parking lot and name it, “The 60 Yard Line.” Eventually the house comes between Ben and his fiancée Amy Etzman (played by Kim Crossman). The movie is set during 2009, a pivotal year in Packers’ history, after Brett Favre left the team to play for NFC North rivals, the Minnesota Vikings.
