Green Bay Packers players dress for Dallas at chamber luncheon

If the Green Bay Packers and their fans are downplaying the team's Super Bowl chances this season, it wasn't evident Wednesday.

The Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Welcome Packers luncheon at the Lambeau Field Atrium had a decided Dallas flavor, from discussion to fashion.

Super Bowl XLV will be held in Dallas in February.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers sported a black cowboy hat for the luncheon that drew 815 people. About 10 other Packers wore cowboy hats supplied by Rodgers.

"I see a number of players are already dressed for Dallas, Texas," coach Mike McCarthy said. "We're ready to go."


Every mention of the Super Bowl drew applause, and chamber President Paul Jadin said the hats were "part of the swagger."

A player or coach was a.ssigned to every table, a tradition that has existed since the 1960s when coach Vince Lombardi initiated the annual luncheon.

"It puts lots of fans closer to players than they'll ever be," Jadin said, adding that it raises funds for other chamber community programs. "We are able to generate a good amount of money from this."

The Madison Packer Backers rented a bus to come to the luncheon, and Cheryl Cummings was concerned that her table might not get a player.

"We were freaking out because they were getting to the end," she said. But she and the others at table No. 68 were thrilled when Rodgers was a.ssigned to them.

Attendance was down at last year's luncheon because of the economy but was back to near capacity this year, said Marilyn Heim, special events manager for the chamber.

Jeff Mason, chairman of the chamber's board of directors, presented the 25th annual Community Service Award to safety Nick Collins for his community and charity work.

When lunch was over, the Packers went directly to the airport to fly to Kansas City for tonight's game.
