MADISON, Wis. -

From Green Bay to Minnesota, fans are getting ready for Saturday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.

In Green Bay Friday afternoon, fans attended a pep rally in downtown that closed a city street.

Packers President Mark Murphy and Green Bay's mayor were on hand.

And in Dresbach, Minn., Pete's Bar, a Vikings bar, is now owned by two Green Bay Packers fans.

Kyle Prentice and Mark Grade bought the bar just over a week ago, saying it was a good investiment.

But they quickly realized patrons are Vikings fans, and their bar will not only serve food and drinks, but also Packers-Vikings rivalry.

"Lask week, the Packer fans kind of congregated toward that back TV," said Mark Grade, "so I went and got us a little bigger TV."

Both Grade and Prentice say they won't let business get in the way of their allegiance.
