Eddie Lacy’s having a garage sale

Getty Images

Former Vikings coach Bud Grant has gotten notice for a couple of garage sales in recent years and he’s getting some company on that front from a former member of the Vikings’ bitter rivals from Wisconsin.

Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy is getting set to head to Seattle after spending the last four years with the Packers and it seems he’d like to travel light on the way to his new home. Lacy announced on Twitter Wednesday that he will be holding a “garage and moving” sale in DePere, Wisconsin on Friday and Saturday.

Lacy announced that the proceeds for the sale will be going to charity while anything that doesn’t get sold will be donated to Freedom House, a shelter in Green Bay for homeless families.

There’s no word on what kind of items will be on sale, although we’re sure your comments will be full of all manner of suggestions for what one might find when Lacy puts out the card tables this weekend.

    There will be clowns joking about food for sale or something, but what charity have you losers donated to lately?

  2. wafflestomp says: Apr 6, 2017 7:54 AM

    Classy move. And a fun experience for the fans.
    Going to miss his friendly presence around Green Bay and the Fox Valley area.

    And now I’ll make way for all of the small minded fat jokes from the bitter, jealous miscreants of Loserville U.S.A.

    I’m calling dibs on the chocolate fountains. Yes, he has more than one.

  4. buchopeful says: Apr 6, 2017 8:09 AM

    That is totally AWESOME! He can get a new couch or appliances etc when he gets to his new home.. the sale benefits charity in all ways, the $$ if sold and what don’t get sold gets donated… well done Mr. Lacy, we need more people like you.. #BeABlessing

    Anyone need a “slightly used” deep fryer?

  6. paramattic says: Apr 6, 2017 8:17 AM

    One bathroom scale, still in original packaging.

  8. theright0pinion says: Apr 6, 2017 8:18 AM

    I doubt Lacy will be selling any food leftovers

  9. thedirtyplayer says: Apr 6, 2017 8:30 AM

    Bet you could get a great deal on a barely used treadmill.

  10. bulletsandbeer84 says: Apr 6, 2017 8:31 AM

    I’d imagine a turkey fryer and one of those hot dog rollers you find in c-stores.

  11. igocommando says: Apr 6, 2017 8:38 AM

    “he’d like to travel light”. Lol.

  12. Adam McCune says: Apr 6, 2017 8:40 AM

    I need a new George Foreman grill, but I highly doubt he’s selling his….

  13. touchdownroddywhite says: Apr 6, 2017 8:40 AM

    Lots and lots of old Krispy Kreme boxes, I’m sure.

  14. norsehorse88 says: Apr 6, 2017 8:41 AM

    An unwrapped pack of Jazzerise DVDs and a filthy deep fat fryer.

  15. usedjock says: Apr 6, 2017 8:43 AM

    Ok I will get this started.

    Healthier eating cookbook still in the wrapper

    Deep fat fryer only been used 5,000 times and it good condition for $5 but I will take $2

    Assorted collection of gravy bowls and ladles. Very worn but will take 50 cents for them

    Size 48 pants never been worn

  16. DawgPound83 says: Apr 6, 2017 8:45 AM

    Whats the over / under on fridges in this man’s home?

  17. ariani1985 says: Apr 6, 2017 8:49 AM

    Guy does a nice thing and here the same Packer trolls will be shaming him! Go worry about buying more fake stock and leave the guy alone!

  18. skins51186 says: Apr 6, 2017 8:50 AM

    “Oh he’s just doing it for publicity”

    “I bet he’s selling all kinds of assorted cheese and meat trays, but they’ll be empty. Get it? Because he’s fat”

    Ok. We’ve got the PFT standard, cliche comments out of the way so the 100 or so of you getting ready to post some crap like that can just downvote this and move on.

    In all seriousness good for him. Don’t worry about his personal finances unless you’re part of the Lacy family, just show some love to the man for donating proceeds and leftover items to charity. It’s a standup move.

  19. grandsonofcoach says: Apr 6, 2017 9:07 AM

    Can someone pick me up a copy of his P90X video? It worked so well. Preferably autographed.

  20. nflpsychic says: Apr 6, 2017 9:09 AM

    I have dibs on his commercial sized waffle maker

    George Forman Grill?

  24. cardinealsfan20 says: Apr 6, 2017 9:15 AM

    Eddie is a 100% claasy dude. Thoughtful and quiet.

    The losers making fat jokes have no class. None.

  25. floridaslonechargersfan says: Apr 6, 2017 9:20 AM

    Getting rid of the XXXL clothes that are too tight huh?

  26. ariani1985 says: Apr 6, 2017 9:22 AM

    Mamma June transformation highlights on VHS for the locals?

  27. genericcommenter says: Apr 6, 2017 9:26 AM

    If you actually know what a George Foreman grill is, you know your jokes are way off the mark.

  28. QCsteel55 says: Apr 6, 2017 9:27 AM

    This would be so awesome if other players did this when leaving for a new team. It softens the blow. You get to meet and interact with him, probably at his house, support a great cause, and it helps you move on from the player without hating his guts for leaving your team. Like a Farwell party.

    Kudos Lacy

  29. gromit45 says: Apr 6, 2017 9:41 AM

    Seriously guys? All the food prep items will go with him.

  30. jjackwagon says: Apr 6, 2017 9:49 AM

    Hey…I like Eddie Lacy. WhoTF wants to be the best looking corpse in the cemetery?

    I am guessing every keyboard warrior on here is at least 50 lbs overweight. It’s the the pot calling the kettle fat.

  31. cheeseisfattening says: Apr 6, 2017 9:55 AM

    Now that he is leaving Green Bay he won’t need all his deep firers anymore.

  32. RegisHawk says: Apr 6, 2017 9:56 AM

    I hear Bud Grant will be there to compare prices…

  33. cheeseisfattening says: Apr 6, 2017 10:00 AM

    Seattle has a top flight training facility so he won’t need all those P90x DVDs anymore.

  34. twoteamsforlosangeles says: Apr 6, 2017 10:03 AM

    What a nice “parting gift”…

  35. stipez says: Apr 6, 2017 10:05 AM

    Camahn, he’s been in Green Bay, you know there’s a collection of foam domes

  36. winningisabrees says: Apr 6, 2017 10:07 AM

    can’t wait to get the stench off of him from the real Loserville, Wis.

    That’s an odd thing to deflect onto someone else, considering your own local newspapers are the ones that coined the nickname “Loserville,” when referencing the Twin Cities.

    Plus, the Vikings have a “winning” percentage of .133 against the Packers this decade. That’s kinda “stenchy,” wouldn’t you agree?

  43. whenwilliteverend says: Apr 6, 2017 10:45 AM

    Is he selling his memberships to Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts?

  44. immafubared says: Apr 6, 2017 10:51 AM

    You guys ever all puny but the one thing of value to me he has and unfortunately I need, is his slimming mirror. If you can’t lose weight, make yourself look like you did. Lol

    Not bad, Teddy, not bad.

  49. illneverlearn says: Apr 6, 2017 3:10 PM

    I’m going to guess this isn’t the first time he has donated household stuff. He must really wear out couches fast…..

  50. frank booth says: Apr 6, 2017 3:16 PM

    I’d much rather go to Bud’s house, to shake the hand of a Hall-of-Fame NFL coach with a losing playoff record and 4 blown Super Bowls. I went there once and he told tell me about all the Vikings’ division championships, and then his voice would trail off at the end of each story as every season would end with a loss, despite having 6 Hall-of-Famers on his Super Bowl teams of the 1970’s.

    He’d look down and scratch his head and say, “Hey, have you ever seen a Grey Cup before?”, motioning to his Canadian football league trophies piled in a box, along with his NFC Championship trophies.

    We got liquored up and spent the rest of the afternoon firing guns in his basement and re-hunting the animals mounted on his walls. Bud got close several times, but he never did hit one.

    Bud finally tired, but he did give me a parting gift- the bra and high heels that Fran Tarkenton wore in Super Bowl IX, when he threw 3 INT’s and had a 14.1 rating.

    Rumor has it that Mike McCarthy was there doing some bargain hunting.

  52. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 6, 2017 5:59 PM

    It’s easy to find the garage sale, the neighbors on each side and across the street are having huge parties.

  53. truthbetold109 says: Apr 6, 2017 6:44 PM

    I bet the vikings management will be there looking through stuff. They love former Packer stuff!

  54. cougar69rt03 says: Apr 7, 2017 2:08 AM

    He says he likes to travel light , hmmmm GB fans might it be he doesn’t want to bring much from his time in Green Bay ? Nice move by Lacy pun intended .

  55. allight59 says: Apr 7, 2017 5:41 PM

    I’m sure the weight machines, treadmill and juicer have very little or no use….

    That could be the case, in the same way as it reflects poorly on the Vikings when Adrian Peterson says he wants to play on a contender.

    No, they probably have plenty of use left in them, because they’ve barely been used. Is that what you’re going for there?
