Packers fans do love their team.

They're Super Bowl champions. They're 12-0 this season.

And they're hot with investors (sort of).

Things couldn't be much better for the Green Bay Packers. And this morning we're hearing that the team's fifth sale of stock in its 92-year history is going very well.

"The Packers said they took 1,600 orders for shares of stock in the first 11 minutes of the sale," theGreen Bay Press Gazettereports.
