  • 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 stride with Waltz

Posted by packers.com on April 30, 2012 – 8:33 pm

WR Donald Driver and his dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd scored 27 points out of 30 for the fourth consecutive week on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Likely unsurprising to Packers fans, Donald easily kept rhythm with his swift and agile footwork during the Viennese Waltz and received a post-dance standing ovation from the full audience in the ABC ballroom.

Costumed like true royalty, the pair received praise from the judges and modest critique along with 9 points from each.

Len Goodman who has judged Driver both hot and cold in previous weeks told the couple they did a great job and that their dance was well done.

“I thought it was terrific,” said Judge Len Goodman.

This 7th week of competition provided Driver with the probable security that he will see Week 8. But will it be enough for this royal duo?

Eliminations continue on “Dancing with the Stars.” Viewers are encouraged to 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.

    What a treasure to watch Doanld and Peta. What a classy face of the Packers he is. Just like at home game, the crowd goes crazy when he is announced. Not just a talented athlete and performer, he is a humble, devoted, and dedicated man.

    Donald is doing great! It is dissapointing to see that the Packers have not attended the live presentations to show support for Donald.

    A star and gentleman. Donald has shown his true wonderful self on the dance floor as well as he does on the field. He is a great mentor for the new guys coming into “The Pack”. Can’t wait until football season starts.
