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.

Postcards from Hawaii - Josh Sitton

Posted Jan 25, 2013


For the first time in his career, Packers G Josh Sitton is a member of the NFC Pro Bowl squad. An alternate in the initial voting, Sitton was named to the team in place of 49ers G Mike Iupati, who is playing in the Super Bowl. Sitton is only the third Packers guard in the last 40 years to make the Pro Bowl, joining Gale Gillingham and Marco Rivera.

Packers.com caught up with Sitton as the NFC’s week of practices concluded, and he sends this update from Hawaii.

Everything is so chill out here. We have practice, but it’s just 45 minutes, and we’ve been done by noon every day.

This is my third time in Hawaii – I played in the Hawaii Bowl my sophomore year in college, and then the Hula Bowl was my all-star game – but this trip means the most.

It means everything. It’s one of those career goals that I’ve had. Super Bowl, Pro Bowl and All-Pro, I think we all aspire to those three. We’re all kind of created in the same way. We have that want-to, that will to be the best, and it feels great to be out here amongst the best. There are rookies out here and there are guys that I’ve grown up watching, so it makes you prideful to be amongst these guys, for sure.

Watching the NFC Championship Game last week, I knew exactly what was at stake for me, and I was definitely hoping the 49ers would win. Obviously, I’m still disappointed about our loss, but you have to take it in stride, and this is such a great opportunity. I wish we were still playing, but I’m glad to be out here. One of those bittersweet type of things.

I brought a few people out here with me. My mom, my aunt, my brother and my best friend are all here. They all went to Pearl Harbor yesterday (I’ve been there before) while I went to a different military base for an NFL Play 60 event. We had a lot of fun with all the kids. Today we’re going to hit the golf course.

Otherwise, we’re just chilling and being lazy until the game on Sunday. How hard guys are going to play has been a topic of discussion around here, so I guess we’ll see. These guys are the best of the best, so I’m planning to go play a full, hard game.

The last big event will be Monday, when we go deep-sea fishing. I’ve caught a few big fish, but I’ve never caught a big sailfish or marlin or tuna, so that’s what we’re going for, a big game fish. Hopefully I’ll be putting a big marlin on my wall.

    Packers.com presents 'Prospect Primer,' a video look at an assortment of draft-eligible players who attended the scouting combine in Indianapolis. Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller started 42 games over four years before an injury forced him to miss a handful of games down the stretch in 2013. Also intercepted two passes each of the last three seasons. Injury kept him out of Senior Bowl workouts but was healthy enough to participate at the scouting combine and is projected to go as high as the middle of the first round.
