Packers granted special permission for ring ceremony

The Green Bay Packers received special permission from the NFL to bring the entire team together next month, in the event (likelihood?) the NFL’s lockout remains in place.

The Packers will host a Super Bowl XLV championship ring ceremony at the Lambeau Field Atrium on June 16.

“We’re looking forward to having an evening for the players, coaches and organization to recognize the victory in Super Bowl XLV,” team president Mark Murphy said, on the team’s Web site.

“It was an extraordinary season and the players earned their rings in very exciting fashion. We’re going to celebrate all the hard work that went into the championship. We’re excited for the evening.”

It will be even more exciting when all 32 teams are able to gather and begin actual football work.
