GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Canadians can now buy into the Green Bay Packers. The team says they've gotten approval from Canadian authorities to sell stock north of the border. Green Bay is the only publicly-owned NFL team. Shares cost 250 bucks each. But ownership just brings bragging rights. The shares pay no dividends and have virtually no re-sale value. The Packers offered 280,000 shares for sale. There were 17,000 left as of last Tuesday. The stock sale ends the 29th. The team says the money raised will be used to expand Lambeau Field.
