Tickets are priced at $85 per person and are good for both days of the event. Children 6 and younger are free. Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Jan. 21 through Ticketmaster and can be purchased online, over the phone and in person. Those ubiquitous Ticketmaster fees will also apply. (Sorry, folks. There's no bigger unregulated monopoly in the U.S. than Ticketmaster.) A direct link to online ticket sales information can be found at

Slocum named new Special Teams Coordinator
The Packers are apparently promoting Shawn Slocum to take over special teams. He previously served as an assistant under retired former coordinator Mike Stock for the past three seasons. Let's hope he learned what not to do.

You can read more about that staff move here, including information about the search for the team's new defensive coordinator.
