Eddie Lacy’s having a garage sale

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. Inventory:

    1) George Foreman 5-Serving Burger Grill

    2) Fry-O-Later Model 2000 Deep Fryer

    3) Taylor Industrial Strength Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine (3 Flavors)

    4) Norge Pizza Oven

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  6. “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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

    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?

  10. 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

    Like new Eliptical Machine Bowflex max M5

    Unopened: entire dvd set Tony Horton P90x

    box of VHS including Eric Nies the grind workout

    Are we sure this isn’t just a ruse to lure people to his house so he can eat them?

    ——————————————————————–

    Not bad, Teddy, not bad.

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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 .

    ===================================
    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.

    I’m sure the weight machines, treadmill and juicer have very little or no use….
    ===================================
    No, they probably have plenty of use left in them, because they’ve barely been used. Is that what you’re going for there?
