Cheeseheads descend on Lambeau for game gear


GREEN BAY (AP) -- Scores of exhausted but euphoric Green Bay Packer fans are descending on Lambeau Field to buy up Super Bowl championship gear.

Brett Elliott of Abrams took a day off from work to visit the stadium's pro shop. He bought seven Super Bowl champion T-shirts. Still hoarse from screaming during the game, he says a couple shirts are for him and the rest for his co-workers.

Seventeen-year-old Ashley Ellis and her friend, 18-year-old Erica Christensen, both of Oak Creek, drove to Green Bay at 5 a.m. Monday. They hit the pro shop -- Ellis got a Super Bowl cap before they sold out -- and planned to stake out a spot for the team's welcome home parade Monday afternoon.

The team also plans a giant rally at the stadium Tuesday.
