Packer Elvis needs votes to win ‘Cheesehead’ award


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - One of La Crosse's biggest Green Bay Packer fans a finalist in the running to win the "Cheesehead Choice Award" for craziest Packer costume.

Ted Withey is Packer Elvis.

He said the whole idea for his getup started when his daughter came across an Elvis wig that featured the Packer green and gold.

When his other daughter bedazzled an Elvis jumpsuit, this alter-persona came to life.

Packer Elvis frequents Lambeau Field and his regular hangout, Glory Days, in downtown La Crosse.

 "A lot of people come in and they enjoy it and, you know, if you can put a smile on people's faces, I guess it's worth it," Withey said.

After a pool of 1,400 applicants, Packer Elvis has made it to the final three in the craziest Packer costume category.

Withey could win a Cheesehead Choice Award and tickets to the Packer-Vikings game.
