Side-by-side: Packers quarterbacks as Happy Gilmore characters

GREEN BAY -- At the 2019 "Welcome Back Luncheon" on Wednesday, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers led his position group in a costume-themed appearance as characters from the 1996 Adam Sandler movie "Happy Gilmore."

Backup QB Tim Boyle was actually the one who dressed as the title character, Sandler's Happy. Rodgers was Ben Stiller's character, Hal L, while DeShone Kizer was Chubbs, played by Carl Weathers, and Manny Wilkins was Happy's caddy Otto, played by Allen Covert.

Below are photo collections from this year's luncheon, as well as from past years, highlighting the costume idea from a given season, most of which have been Western-themed.

Back in 2010 is when the tradition started in earnest, with several players dressing in a cowboy look. It just so happened that year the Super Bowl was in Dallas, Texas, so the dress choice was appropriate for where the Packers ended that season.
