Highlight video

The Packers will debut their 2009 highlight film, "12 Days to Contenders," in the Legends Club of the Lambeau Field Atrium on Wednesday, June 2. Admission is free, with the screening to start at 7 p.m.

The "12 days" reference pertains to the Packers' season-changing victories over Dallas, San Francisco and Detroit. Those wins over a 12-day stretch propelled the Packers from 4-4 to 7-4.

The highlight film features the cinematography of NFL Films and includes "miked-up" segments, with moments including Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant and coach Mike McCarthy.

Linebacker Nick Barnett will be there to discuss the 2009 season and look ahead to the 2010 season.

To order, go to PackersProShop.com or visit the Packers Pro Shop.

Tent Sale

The 17th annual Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale is set for Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5, in the Lambeau Field Atrium, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items at reduced prices and other special purchases.

The team's football operations staff has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of shoes, T-shirts, fleece tops and mesh shorts. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.
