Green Bay, Wisconsin (CNN) – Paul Ryan briefly tailgated outside Lambeau Field before his beloved Green Bay Packers played NFC rival Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Wearing a Green Bay Packer jacket and tie, the Wisconsin lawmaker and Republican vice presidential nominee was swarmed by a crush of reporters and supporters near Sideline Sportsbar and a Romney campaign bus.

Ryan didn't appear to indulge in a Miller Lite, his beer of choice, but he played the bean bag-toss game "cornhole" with his kids.
Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Ron Johnson and Rep. Reid Ribble of Wisconsin appeared with the seven-term congressman. Mitt Romney's sons, Matt and Josh, also joined their father's running mate in Green Bay, along with four of Romney's grandkids.
The vice presidential hopeful's visit to Green Bay was brief. He arrived Saturday night, tailgated less than 15 minutes and left an hour and a half before kick-off so he could begin a four-state blitz with rallies in Ohio, Minnesota and Colorado.
At a town hall earlier this month, in Waukesha, Ryan said he was feeling positive about a recent win by the Packers and was hoping that might rub off on his party and end a 28-year losing streak for Republican presidential nominees in his home state.
"And in Wisconsin we have shown that if leaders step up and lead we as voters have their backs. We haven't dedicated our electoral votes since 1984 to the Republican nominee. It is time we change that," Ryan said on Oct. 15. "We are on a winning streak here in Wisconsin. Let's keep that winning streak going."
