  • 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.

Inside the tour bus: Players watch “Dancing”

Posted by Duke Bobber on May 16, 2012 – 1:01 pm

The 'Tailgate Tour' group watches Donald Driver on DWTS

As soon as Tuesday night’s tailgate party ended in La Crosse, the players filed back onto the tour bus to watch the final minutes of “Dancing With The Stars.” There was a collective sigh of relief when the results were announced and the players realized Driver was moving onto the finals.

    Sigh – I guess I am going to have to go and buy a couple more $20 cell phones before next week’s finals. This is serious. Get a couple more email addresses to lob a few more votes in for Donald Driver. I am a very serious Donald Driver fan.

    This is awesome that the players on the tour got to watch Doanld and Peta find out they are in the finals. PackerNation now needs to show their support more than ever. They players are touring to stop bullying and all I have seen on the DWTS blogs is Donald Bashing and how he can’t dance and he should not have made the finals and I could go on and on but I won’t because I think Donald IS THE BEST DANCER and deserves the Mirror Ball Trophy DO TEAM DONALD GO

    I am extremely disappointed in the lack of support Donald has had from his team mates during this Dancing competition. One week only have there been any Packers there to cheer him on. What does that say about the team as a whole?
    In addition – Donald is a far better dancer than William Levy. That is obvious to anyone watching each week. Yet Levy continues to stay. The week that Donald danced with the two pros, he clearly deserved a 10. He is far more physical and makes far less mistakes than Levy. I am disappointed in both the team and that show and pray that Donald sees it for what it is.
    Donald – you have helped make me a proud Packer fan. I hope you stay on for at least one more season. It has been a pleasure watching you play. Truly a football great!

    When voting you can also call: 1-800-868-3403. And to Katspack, there have been other weeks when I have spotted other Packer team mates in the audience sitting near Donald’s wife and kids, so he has had support from his team. And perhaps if any other players are there supporting him they may not be sitting near his family as Aaron, Coach Mike, Clay and Coach Edgar were this past week. Perhaps they were sitting in other areas of the studio. I have seen Donald coming off the dance floor and pointing to people in the audience in other areas and who knows they may be Packer team mates. So shame on you for suggesting he has not had the support of his team, but I do agree with you about the support of the show, mainly the judges, Len in paticular. Donald, Peta and Karina SO DESERVED all 10′s for the trio Jive, best dance of the season by far.

    God, I wish I could be in the audience of DWTS on Monday to cheer on “Team Driving Miss Peta”! Donald is one of my favorites of all time on The Packers and yes, he definately is the most technically sound dancer on the floor. Hey, he’s been watching the show since its conception. He KNOWS what the judges are looking for. So when Donald Wows you next Monday,be sure all you Packer Backers vote heavy and often for Donald and get him that Mirror Ball Trophy, so he can share it with Peta and his Packer team-mates!
