On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Obama, Woodson ‘spar’ in celebration

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 12, 2011 – 2:49 pm

President Barack Obama and Packers cornerback Charles Woodson playfully sparred in a Super Bowl XLV victory celebration that rekindled memories of the Packers’ 2010 championship season.

“I’m just going to come out and say it. This hurts a little bit This is a hard thing for a Bears fan to do,” Obama jokingly said in addressing a crowd gathered on the White House lawn on Friday afternoon. “You guys come into my house and rub it in. What are you going to do, go to Ditka’s house next?”

The President’s remarks were in reference to Woodson’s comments following the Packers’ win over the Bears in the NFC title game last January. After Obama said he would go to the Super Bowl if the Bears won, Woodson said in a passionate postgame victory speech that if the President wouldn’t come to see the Packers, the Packers would go to see him. Today, Woodson and his teammates made good on that promise.

“I guess I especially have to welcome Charles Woodson,” Obama said. “I gave Charles a little bulletin board material last year.”

The Packers presented Obama with a Packers jersey and a share in the team, which elicited this remark from the President: “We should initiate a trade to send (Aaron) Rodgers to the Bears.”

Woodson then reminded the President he is a minority owner.

Obama praised the Packers and their fans and singled out team President Mark Murphy, General Manager Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

“I learned something all quarterbacks have been learning for a long time: Don’t mess with Charles Woodson,” Obama said. “Your defense was flying all over the place, like Clay Matthews’ hair.”

Of Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers, Obama said: “He’s one of the best quarterbacks, perhaps, of all time.”

Packers fans?

“Even a Bears fan can admit the relationship between Green Bay and its team is something special,” Obama said, then cautionedf: “Congratulations. Enjoy it while it lasts because Bears fans have two dates circled on their calendars.”

    Okay the Packers jersey I can see, but shares in the Green Bay Packers? I bought my two shares back at a time when that was quite a bit of money for me but I felt it was worth it. Besides I would think that the bylaws don’t allow for any additional shares to just be “given away” to anyone…..let alone a Bear’s fan.

    The whole thing was sensational. The President couldn’t have been more fun-loving and complimentary. This is a great day in Packers history.

    I was so excited to know that my beloved Packers would be here in DC, just 4 blocks from my work, one week before I must return home to Chicago!
    I waited two hours outside in the sun to see them leave the WH. I was disappointed though! They all seemed rather upset and not like the Fan-Loving football team we CheeseHeads know. What the heck really happened.

    Obama: As a person, love ‘em. As a President, not so much. That said, today wasn’t about politics it was about celebrating something positive. It was about acknowledging and accenting something that contributes to what makes America great. At a time when being an American isn’t as glamorous as maybe it once was, moments like these certainly remind us that among tough times there can be a few good days as well. Congrats Green Bay Packers and President Obama, you guys did us all well today!

    I agree with you Vic!! The team as well as the President seemed to enjoy your time together! I was laughing so hard. I especially loved the interaction between Woodson and Obama. The President has a good sense of humor and would have been remiss if he had not mentioned that he was a Bears fan and poked some fun at the Packers and the fact we are the SUPERBOWL CHAMPS!!! I cannot wait til the season starts – GO PACK!!!

    Vic! I live in Northern VA and I work in downtown Washington D.C.! I wish I knew you guys were going to be here today, I would have met you all at Dulles or perhaps in the city! (I can see the Capital building from my window, so the White House isn’t very far!)

    It would have been really great to give shares in the Packers to a charity in honor of the President. A charity could use whatever comes with the shares for fundraisers each year to do good to those in need. Perhaps the President will donate them to a Green Bay charity himself.

    Glad to see that Obama still has a great sense of humor, and he’s humble enough to eat his words. I wanna see that jersey, though. :D

    @MarcieAnn, the only thing that goes along with owniing shares is having a vote at the business meeting. You dont get money or divedends. You dont get tickets or anything. I have one share and I am quite proud of it.

  12. By Yenter on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    I agree with Rich; did they really just give away a share? My share was worth every penny, but to just give one away, even if it is the President, is unacceptable.

  13. By Sean on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    @MarcieAnn, Nothing comes with owning shares in the Packers. You don’t get dividends or anything like that. Just the knowledge and bragging rights that you own part of the greatest team in America, so a charity wouldn’t benefit from them at all.

    I also agree that the players don’t seem to be as fan friendly this year as they have in the past. Maybe that comes with winning a Super Bowl or maybe its just because they have been so busy with the rush to prepare for the season with the shortened offseason that they are too worn out to acknowledge fans as much. None of the players I have written have answered any fan mail like in past years and my kids haven’t had a chance to get many player autographs this year yet because it seems most players are in a huge hurry after practice to get back home. Again though that could be because of the extra work needed with the shortened offseason. Hopefully it changes. Good luck this year fellas!

    Thanks, Sean and Rob, for the answers re the shares. For some reason I had the impression a pair of tickets went with the shares. Such a shame that it doesn’t. Do you at least get a plaque or a piece of paper to frame?

    Everyone has their own opinion regarding President Obama, however, you certainly have to give him credit for NOT being a Viking fan.

    If I am remembering correctly, Presidents aren’t allowed to keep anything given to them worth more than $100 when they leave the White House. The share of stock will probably be included in the artifacts displayed in Obama’s Presidential Library,wherever that will be–probably in Chicago.

    I agree with Rich, the jersey is one thing but a share in the team, it degrade all share holder and the team itself. It made me angry. Come on, the man is a bears fan!!!!!

    What a great moment to witness. We knew the Packers would have some tricks up their sleeves in making Obama munch his words. They staged it perfectly; just like the victory. Leave no stone unturned.

  19. By Betsy on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    I was incensed to see that they gave Obama shares in the team. Those shares are a great source of pride among Packer fans and Obama is a Bears fan. I wish I was able to purchase a share or two, but will have to wait until the Packers need to have another sale, which will probably be never as the team is on firm footing financially. Wonder who made that decision to give shares – that’s what they said, shares – to Obama. That never came up in the shareholders meeting this summer. I know they aren’t worth anything, but to Packer fans, they are priceless!

    If I’m Jay Cutler I’m a little bothered right now. The president of the United States, who just happens to be a Bears fan, practically just said he would rather have Aaron Rodgers quarterbacking the team. What a vote of confidence from Obama!

  21. By Cali on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    That’s funny. Not even the president likes Cutler!! If I was Cutler, I’d just throw in the towl and quit, wait, he did once already, HA HA!! Now, I wouldn’t give Obama the time of day let alone give him shares in our team. He’ll probably burn the jersey and flush the share the Pack gave him. Bears will always suck, just like their fans. GO PACKERS!!!!

    As a former Bears fan for decades I say Go Pack Go! I am a life long FIB and regret the day I ever followed the Bears. I never liked Farve oh boy did he ever make a fool of the Bears. Rodgers is all world a class act indeed! Driver has more heart than the whole Bears organization! I always thought coach Mcarthy was a great choice and brought the Pack where they belong #1,thanks coach! Thank you Packers for making NFC championship victory in chicago that was sweet! I could go on for days about the AFC have no use for that mess! Thanks for beating those steelers 1000 thanks!!! Go Pack Go!!!

  24. By John on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    Ok, well thats cool that they went up there. Sure it was kind of like going over to inlaws that don’t really like you that much, but its a tradition i guess.

    But what really gets me is that The President is not even a Packers fan, actually doesn’t even like them. So why would he get a share of our team, when i know a lot of us including myself would pay just to have a small share. He already runs the country, why would he need somthing he doesn’t want and just like any fan of another team will probably put it in a desk some where and not appricate it.
    When are the fans going to get atleast a chance to buy a share?

  25. By Yenter on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    I hope the Packers release a statement on their website about the authenticity of the share. I can’t see how they can just give away shares, so I can’t imagine that it is an actual share. If it is, in fact, an authentic share, they definitely have some explaining to do.

    Everybody just needs to relax about the shares thing. It was symbolic. Nothing more. Take joy that we just got to watch our team celebrate a SUPER BOWL WIN by presenting a BEARS FAN with a jersey that they were required to take. The rest needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

    Just like human nature, instead of being happy YOUR team was at the White House and use a real or fake 1 share of the team as a gift to RUB IT IN to a bears fan, you get all caught up in the fact a share was given to him. Ok, it may be a real share and it may cost lost of money, he WILL NEVER benefit so who cares!
    BE PROUD that your team has gone again to the White House to celebrate a great season!
    To answer the question from the fan that said she saw the team when they were leaving and they seemed upset, did you ever think they were really tired? This team has had a very busy couple of weeks and this wasn’t a leisure trip, this was go up and turn right around and come right back.
    Have you never had a trip like that? Are you cheerful and bubbly the entire time, even when you are dog tired?
    Let’s stop looking at the silly nit picky things that bring a bad light to Packer Fans and look at the POSITIVE and be PROUD that we are Packer Fans and our team went again to the White House. Remember, the President sighted the loyalty and pride the fans have in THEIR team, let’s not dull that imagine with petty negativity.
    I say, Thank YOU TEAM for making us PROUD of you!
    GO PACKERS!!!!!

    Thanks for the great comment Norma. That is exactly how we should look at the White House visit – we are proud of our G.B. Packers her in Wisconsin. I saw them at practice the day before the trip and they did sign autographs after practice. An important year is ahead of them now – being the Super Bowl Champions!! Let’s go for 2 in a row.

    I can’t believe a first class organization would tar it’s reputation by going to the White house and have any dealings with this terrorist president. Who’s only goal is to destroy this great nation. If you would have had any respect you would have said no to him. I am very disappointed and ashamed of your decision to go to the white House. I’m still a Packers fan but you should have had the respect to take a stand against this anti christ president.

    Really Steve? C’mon man! Wish you wouldn’t have stated you are a Packer fan. Stupid comments like that make us all look ridiculous. It’s bad enough that you probably met your wife at a family reunion, but to spew your crap on an article about a football team? Just because a team goes to the White House does not mean they endorse the President. Take your political garbage elsewhere please.

    1. Wow Steve Reames – Get a life, this is a football site not a political one. And the visit is symbolic and not an endorsement of the prez.

    2. I think maybe the players may have appeared upset because one of their own, Dez Bishop, missed the visit because he forgot his ID and the Secret Service wouldn’t let him in for the visit. What a sad thing for him.

    3. People who think we are taking this “giving Obama a share of the Pack” scandal too seriously – We are not upset that we gave it to a democrat, or anything else we may think of Obama, except for one thing – WE GAVE IT TO A BEARS FAN! That is a crime! Not only that, but if you are familiar with the team bylaws, I see no way they could have legitimately given a share to him or anyone else. you can’t gift, sell, or otherwise transfer a share, except you can will it to someone or give it to the American Legion local post. If you think I am kidding, look it up. It’s true.

  33. By CheeseheadChris on Aug 13, 2011 | Reply

    More on the shares – I learned (preparing to eat crow) that the stockholders voted in 1997 to change the beneficiary from the American Legion to the Packers Foundation, a charitable giving group. I should know this since I was at that meeting!

    MarcieAnn – The one nice thing that you do get is a beautiful stock certificate. I bought a share in 1997, and a third party offered a beautiful frame with a little engraved plate beneath the certificate. So it’s a nice showpiece. And the honor of being able to call yourself an owner of the greatest franchise in sports history is, as Betsy said, priceless.

    Cali,

    Nice to see your name in here…hope all is well my friend. Don’t find the keyboard much in the offseason…that has ended though thankfully and I look forward to the Pack doubling up on SB wins in 2011. I think our team stayed in-tact enough to get it done again especially when one considers what the team and staff accomplished last year. Say hello to the rest of the diehards for me from last year down the stretch if you frequesnt often. Too bad about the losss to the Browns….but it is only preseason.

    Take care Cali!

    Roll on Pack Roll on

    I agree with CheeseheadChris, in that I can’t see how the team can just give one share away. I have no political ax to grind here, only I would be deeply offended if the team was able somehow to give away a share to a non Packer fan. I value my share very much, and I cringe to think that the team and some fans look at giving one share to a Bear fan as good humor. It devalues my share when the team just gives them away, especially as a joke.

I actually have health insurance, which would equal most peoples alcohol and cigarette monthy bill? This entire country is going to crap, I blame the far left liberals and blood sucking mexicans which is so obvious…..keep givin’ and we will all die for sure, we have become a lessor nation due to lazy slugs, (IE.

    minocquabat: My goodness I was not aware this was a political debate via the Packers. Perhaps you are confused and assume your at a Teaparty Seminar? I know that I am assuming that I am on a Packer Blog communicating on what a pleasure it was to see our Team and Management representing Wisconsin in Washington D.C. I say that with the greatest respect to our President Obama and our Green Bay Packers Team and Corporate Leaders. I saw a lot of communications between players making over well over $150,000 a year with big smiles and shaking hands and proud to be a Packer representing many fans all over the United States. I did not see any people making peanuts ie $150,000 a year and complaining about social issues or communicating disrespect like a good Teaparty Slave would do on a Blog not intended for such communications. In fact I saw players that make millions hugging our President Obama not seen I am sure at a Teaparty Seminar. Than reading down your post you slam players via haircuts and such are you just simple? Anyways there were a lot of players that work with many charities of the poor and needy and I thank them for there off the field focus. God Bless all of you folks. Those rings are just a touch of what you give back to the fans!

Had that stock gift been proposed to the Team’s other shareholders ahead of time, the vote would’ve been a resounding “NO”.

    Vic, please clue me in as to this “asterisk” business with Obama. It sounds like a funny story.

    Yes, the banter between Charles Woodson and Obama was priceless. We owe that fellow in the White House a thank-you for opening his mouth a bit too widely about not wanting to see our Packers in Super Bowl XLV. Leave it to Mr. Woodson to fire up the whole team over it. Way to go, Charles! Go, Pack, go!
