Wearing a suit and crown in the Packers games, Jason Mercier was nicknamed the “King of the North”.
He is a super fan of the Packers.
“I can remember [being] 2 or 3 years old, cheering for the Packers, “Mercier, lives in Michigan’s Menominee County on the Upper Peninsula (UP)
Mercier is selling a Packers history lesson — a party bus called “The Big Cheese.”
“It was a 1990 bus, bought from a brother, brother-in-law in Green Bay last year, they used it for shops after about 25 years,” Mercier said.
The bus, with an asking price of $14,000, has seating for 14 people, as well as a bar, built-in refrigerators and restrooms, Mercier said.
“Mine just happens to be portable.”
When asked why he was selling buses, Mercier said one reason was family; he focuses on college money for his high school son.
“…I’m trying to get rid of some of my expenses and expenses,” says Mercier.
Mercier said he’s been making designated chauffeur-driven rides on the bus after buying it last year, taking fans from UP to Green Bay for the Packers games.
“I filled them all last year,” says Mercier.
“I also do weddings and bachelorette parties and things like that.”
Mercier hopes to travel to England this year for a game against the Packers in London, and says the trip is more likely to happen to him if he sells buses; he can also bring his son.
“If I had some [money] Left over, I definitely want to bring my son and I into that game,” said Mercier.
“Once in a lifetime opportunity.”
