Packers Bingo in Monroe

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 16, 2013 – 2:00 pm

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb poses for a picture with fans.After departing Beloit – it was the team’s first visit to Beloit since Nov. 23, 1919, by the way, when the Beloit Fairies defeated the Packers, 6-0 – the Tour made a visit to the Behring Senior Center in Monroe, Wis.

The players and alumni had the chance to meet and play Bingo with more than 90 seniors who live at the center.

Bingo card-drawing and announcing duties were shared among the players and after the first shout of “Bingo,” Aaron Taylor drew laughs when he said, “We need verification.”

Later, during a particularly long game, Taylor wryly observed, “You can cut the tension with a knife.”

Jarrett Bush tested all the Bingo players when he sped things up with his version of “No Huddle Bingo.”

Some of the seniors playfully booed him and shouted, “Slow down!”

During a question-and-answer session, Frank Winters was asked why Clay Matthews was wearing his No. 52. The room burst into laughter.

“Funny story about Clay,” said Winters. “My first year in Cleveland, I played with his dad. I told Clay that I remembered him as a boy coming around practice.”

For the seniors, the special guests provided a memorable morning.

“It’s uplifting and humbling at the same time,” Paul Schoenike said, “that these guys would take the time to visit us. Many of us came early we were so excited.”

The group is heading a couple blocks down the street to install a new playground at a park.
