  • 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.

Driver keeps pace with Foxtrot on DWTS

Posted by packers.com on April 23, 2012 – 8:39 pm

The fast-paced Foxtrot proved to be the right pace for WR Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd, scoring 27 out of 30 total points for the third consecutive week.

“You are a showman, you put so much into it,” said Judge Bruno Tonioli. “Your performances get better and better.”

The couple, dressed in bright aqua, shared the stage with the Motown greats, The Temptations singing one of their hit songs, “The Way You Do The Things You Do.”

Last week, Judge Len Goodman provided Donald with his low score of the week, 7 points. Goodman complimented the team this week and provided them a score of 9 points along with the other two judges.

“You came out and exploded,” said Goodman. “I love the way you do the things you do.”

During their post-dance interview with Brooke Burke, the couple congratulated each other accordingly.

“I need to get better,” Driver said when prompted on how he would get one of “Len’s 10’s”

Eliminations continue on “Dancing with the Stars.” Viewers can vote via phone and text message for Donald only on the night he performs; online voting ends at 10 a.m. CT the following day. Log on to abc.com to vote.

    I am really sick of those judges overlooking Donald. I am goinng to go buy 10 of those cheap throwaway cell phones and get serious.

    Donald you are the best. Your scores have been the most consistent. You are going to win because you are the best and your fans are the most consistent, too. Nobody would watch that show if it wasn’t for you. That is a fact.

    Donald, you pack the rating for DWTS, just like the Packers pack evry stadium they play in. DWTS ought kiss your toes.

    Donald and Peta–you are being underscored!! Being from Wisconsin we could demand a recall vote. Cheryl and William should be booted off for “lewd and indecent” behavior—that in no way could be construed as dancing and Bruno and the other two judges should be ashamed of the scores they gave them–a 10!!!!!

    Hey, Mates! Enough of the chitter-chatter! Just make sure you vote for DD – All 9 of your allowed on-line votes, Every Week … Like I Do! Donald is clearely the best and most dedicated star dancer on the show. Let’s get Peta her first Mirror-Ball Trophy! So, let’s get out the vote and it’ll be no worries and another Packer Victory!

    I was so excited when Donald Driver showed up on my favorite program. I Love dancing and when he started out I really thought he was a quick learner, then as he progressed. he had Peta were unbelievable, and each time he dances, I can’t believe how he keeps getting better and better. My husband are rooting for him because we feel he deserves to win. We are snowbirds in LasVegas, but home in Little Chute, Wi. WE HOPE HE WINS!!!!
