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.

Former Packers kicker Errol Mann dies at 71

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 18, 2013 – 3:43 pm

Errol Mann, whose 12-year career as an NFL kicker began in Green Bay in 1968, has died at the age of 71.

As a rookie from North Dakota in 1968, Mann played in just two games for the Packers, going 4-of-4 on PATs and 0-of-3 on FGs. He went on to play eight years for the Detroit Lions, leaving there as the club’s all-time leading scorer. He currently ranks fourth on Detroit’s all-time list with 636 points.

Mann’s career continued with the Oakland Raiders, and he made two FGs in a Super Bowl victory over the Minnesota Vikings following the 1976 season. Mann then led the NFL in scoring with Oakland in 1977 with 99 points.

    Errol was in the National Guard and I was drafted in 1964 and we were in the same company for 8 weeks in Fort Leonard Wood MO. He became platoon leader, and was the only guy that didn’t let the little bit of power go to his head. Good sense of humor, and while marching past any good looking ladies he would give us “EYES RIGHT” or “EYES LEFT” so we could all look. He would also give us the command “TRIPLE CHANGE STEP, MARCH”. Have you ever seen a platoon of men change from marching to skipping and back to marching? It was hilarious! I got to see him once more in Lake Tahoe at the celibration they had for John Madden 10 years after winning the Super Bowl. God rest his soul.

    Did he kick soccer style? I cannot recall for sure. I think he wore jersey 12 in Detroit, but Ken Stabler had that in Oakland.

    A good man, rest in peace.
