Dancing the two-step in West Salem

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 16, 2012 – 1:24 pm

The Tailgate Tour is motoring along toward Madison after finishing lunch at High Rock Café in Wisconsin Dells.

Earlier this morning, the crew enjoyed a visit to West Salem High School where they surprised a school assembly of more than 500 students and spoke to them about making good choices and how bullying can be a destructive force in our communities.

William Henderson again spoke to the students on bullying and implored them to build up those in vulnerable positions and not tear them down.

During the Q-and-A, Henderson also spoke of appearing in two Super Bowls – the victory in XXXI and the loss in XXXII.

“When you win, it’s great. When you lose, you’re humbled,” he said. “You realize how easy it is to lose the edge when you aren’t playing your best and when you make mistakes. I spent the rest of my career remembering that game and how we lost. It’s tough when you lose the Super Bowl.”

Dancing with the Stars was again a hot topic for the group. All expressed great excitement with Donald Driver’s advancement to the finals.

“We were done with our event last night and were all on the bus watching the end of the show,” Mason Crosby explained, adding that he had not watched the show until this season. “We were very nervous for Donald and then, of course, very excited to see him move on to next week.”

The suspense of the show was not the only reason for anxiousness last night. The TV signal on the bus was going in and out as the green and gold vehicle moved through downtown. At one point, Charlie Peprah called for the bus to stop so the rest of the show could be watched…no one wanted to miss the end.

The dancing theme continued at West Salem High when Crosby said he could dance a two-step…he is from Texas, after all. He offered to be a partner and a plethora of hands went up.

Sophomore Brady Scafe raised a hand and joined the Packers’ kicker on the floor. Turns out she was interested in a picture with Jordy Nelson, but enjoyed the dance with Crosby.

“I don’t dance much,” she said. “But it was cool.”

Marco Rivera, upon request, demonstrated his smooth Samba moves again. It could be a recurring theme this week.

Nelson was again challenged to a sprint race, and also caught a few passes from some Panther quarterbacks.

The students also learned that Crosby’s pregame routine includes always putting his left shoe on first.

On to Madison.
