  • 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.

    Mike Spofford: Lots of questions on Crosby, as expected. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s reckless,

    It’s hard not be to politically correct when the Packers just won the Division, but everyone knows that Crosby has completely lost it. When we lose in the playoffs because Crosby hits the post on a 19 harder to tie the game with one second left and send it into overtime, McCarthy and Thompson will proven to have made a call – hard it may seem – worse than McCarthy’s fake punt call against the Bears, which may be the worst call by any Packer coach in Packer history, and that’s saying’ something.

    Were Lombardi still coaching, Crosby would’ve been delivering mail in Osh Kosh about 4 games ago.

    Crosby must have pictures of someone.

    During practice Crosby needs to close his his eyes before his foot gets to the ball. He will start making solid kicks with his eyes closed and give him confidence. Also, Crosby peaks and looks to see where the ball is going. He needs to focus on the spot of the ball for a second or two after the ball is on its way, similar to a golfer who hooks or fades…..I know you all think I’m nuts!

    obhtn3, U r nuts!! I stare at that little white ball through the swing and i’ll be darned if it doesn’t keep slicing. New approach needed!!

    You are absolutely right, Alex. For the life of me, I don’t know what they are thinking!!! This isn’t just a few errant kicks; it’s pandemic! In the play-offs, Crosby will definitely cost them a game, and then we know who to blame. But Vic will put a positive spin on it somehow. Vic may be the best hire the Packers made in a decade!!!

    Mason will come around. I watched him sink a pirate ship in the offseason.

    I was at the Packers / Bears game. In warm ups before the second half, Crosby made all of his practice kicks right down the middle. He took about 10 kicks, a few from 40 yards and even 2 from 50 yards and he made them all. With no snap, no hold, no rush and no pressure, he was perfect.

    It isnt worth losing a playoff game to see if Crosby comes around. He has had the last eight games to come around and has missed at least one kick in each of those games.We don’t owe him anymore chances. I can respect the loyalty but there are 50 some other guys that are busting there butts to win and they shouldn’t have to have those wins risked by a kicker who is in a major slump.

    Vic sucks. Idk what you’re talking about.

    I know it’s hard to see possible right now but maybe he kicks that impossible kick to win a Championship. like the Giants did in OT on us in GB a few years ago. Wouldn’t that make it a sweet ending to a wretched season for him?!?

    TT doesn’t own up to 15 million dollar mistakes (he kept Harrell around for 4(!) years). Suck it up and flush this turd already
