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.
The Green Bay Packers' quarterbacks dressed as characters from 'Happy Gilmore' for the 2019 Welcome Back Packers Luncheon.
Last year, Rodgers dressed up as Wyatt Earp in a denim-type suit with a cowboy hat and bolo tie. Boyle also sported a bolo tie while Kizer wore denim overalls.
In 2017, QBs Rodgers and Brett Hundley dressed as the lead characters from the "Men In Black" movie franchise, played by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.
In 2016, it was another Western theme with the dress for some of the players, including offensive lineman David Bakhtiari.
In 2015, Rodgers and FB John Kuhn dressed as military fighter pilots.
In 2014, Rodgers and backup QB Matt Flynn wore all-denim outfits, while Kuhn sported denim overalls.
In 2013, it was an all-American theme, with lots of red, white and blue as well as stars-and-stripes apparel.
Western-themed clothing was once again the choice in 2012.
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.
