Fans wait for NFC North champs gear


The Packers might be NFC North champions but you can't sport that gear just yet.

Local sports shops, like Hoffman's Hobbies in Wausau, say the divisional champs merchandise hasn't come in yet. They say with the Packers uncertain season none of the apparel was made ahead of time. But, that hasn't stopped the phone from ringing off the hook with fans hoping to get their hands on the goods when it does come in.

"There's been people that have called today already, they're on the list. I'm sure later today we'll have 5, 6, 7, people come in and ask if we got the new shirt, new hat, I'll just tell them not yet but I'll take the name and number and give them a call when it's in," said store employee Jeff Campo.

Campo says he expects the gear to arrive by Wednesday or Thursday.
