Grafton provides electric welcome

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 18, 2012 – 10:19 pm

The gym at Grafton High School was an electric venue Friday night for the fourth party of the Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour.

Nearly 900 fans were on hand to welcome the players and Mark Murphy for the event to benefit Portal Inc., an organization dedicated to advancing employment and meaningful community life opportunities for people with developmental disabilities.

During the stage portion of the program attendees learned more about Jordy Nelson’s farming background, specifically that his least favorite chore: working the ground.

“It was just boring, more than anything,” he said.

In addition to the Q-and-A and autograph session, fans had the opportunity to play games with members of the Grafton High School football team.

On the ride back to the historic and quaint Washington House Inn in Cedarburg after the party, tension again surfaced between Marco Rivera and Larry McCarren. Apparently Rivera had been teasing McCarren as more fans in the autograph line had been telling McCarren about how much they liked his voice on the radio broadcasts.

“I kept saying, ‘Oooh, Larry, your voice is so soothing,’” Rivera said. “I was working him all night telling him how much the older ladies loved him.”

McCarren threatened Rivera by saying, ““I’ll slap you around and make you cry in front of your friends.”

The rest of the Tour members on the bus howled in laughter.

Aside from the mock threats, the crew is getting along famously thus far through four days of the Tour.

The final day of the Tailgate Tour is on tap for Saturday, with a party in Sturgeon Bay to support Habitat for Humanity. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the party at Sunset Park.
