MILWAUKEE (AP) _ What would Vince Lombardi say?

Just when Green Bay Packers fans thought they had every imaginable trinket to honor their Super Bowl title, along comes a new product: the ``Sport a Legend″ condom by the Cheese Head Condom Co.

The green-and-gold condom packet was designed by graphic designer Dan Gautraud and his fiancee, Patty Mueller.

``We were brainstorming, how far can we go with the Packers stuff?″ Gautraud said.

The company is selling the condoms by mail for $2.50 each. The condoms are made by Ansell Consumer Products, and the company says they are approved by the Federal Drug Administration.

``You don’t want a lot of Green Bay babies running around,″ said Ann Baldwin, director of technology and regulatory affairs at the Health Industry Manufacturers Association. ``If they’re standard condoms ... I hope they sell them all.″
