Packers sell worthless shares, shareholders can't bet on games

This story is very amusing. Packers fans bought shares of the team's stock at a frenzied pace today for the low price of $250. The shares literally have no monetary value. That's funny if you're a Vikings fan. Even better is that shareholders face a possible $5,000 fine if they get caught betting on Green Bay's games.
