GRAFTON - Scores of exhausted but euphoric Green Bay Packers fans are descending on stores to buy up Super Bowl championship gear.

Some stores opened at 6:00 a.m. to meet the demand.

"I dropped by son off at school and came right here," said Corinne Holloway.

"So far for my son.  He is four years old, so I got that for his room and I've got t-shirts for the whole family."

Brett Elliott of Abrams took a day off from work to visit the stadium's pro shop. He bought seven Super Bowl champion T-shirts. Still hoarse from screaming during the game, he says a couple shirts are for him and the rest for his co-workers.

Seventeen-year-old Ashley Ellis and her friend, 18-year-old Ashley Christensen, both of Oak Creek, drove to Green Bay at 5 a.m. Monday. They hit the pro shop -- Ellis got a Super Bowl cap before they sold out -- and planned to stake out a spot for the team's welcome home parade Monday afternoon.

The team also plans a giant rally at the stadium Tuesday.
