Packers treasure hunt at Port Edwards rummage sale

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 18, 2013 – 2:36 pm

Earlier, the Packers Tailgate Tour team had the opportunity to mingle with another team that rides in a large vehicle during a stop at the Port Edwards Fire Department’s open house.

Was it the color of the Zebco reel that caught Aaron Taylor’s eye?

“I do like fishing. I’m not that great of a fisherman, but I do like getting out there,” Taylor said as the Tailgate Tour stopped at a Port Edwards home during the community’s annual city-wide rummage sale.

Ultimately Taylor passed on the reel, but Santana Dotson did find his treasure: mini crescent wrench key chains. He purchased four for $1.

“How can you pass these up?” he asked rhetorically. “I’m going to love having a wrench available any time I need it.”

Earlier, the Packers Tailgate Tour team had the opportunity to mingle with another team that rides in a large vehicle during a stop at the Port Edwards Fire Department’s open house.

Alex Green noted with disappointment that the building was only a one-story facility.

“Oh, I guess no fire pole,” he said. “That would have been fun.”

The players toured the facility’s garage and fire trucks, and asked questions of the firemen. Randall Cobb and Dotson even had the opportunity to wear the equipment.

“Much heavier than our equipment, wow,” exclaimed Cobb. “I have a lot more respect for those guys. And to wear that stuff and run into a burning building.”

“Alright, Miss, what tree is your cat in?” asked Dotson to the firemen, who responded with a laugh.

“We’re in trouble if you guys are the ones responding to the fire,” said Frank Winters, whose brother is a fireman.

The tour’s final party awaits.

    It’s firefighter, not fireman. My Mother was one. Thanks

    If you’re using a generic pronoun sure. But even though Frank Winter’s BROTHER is a fireman not all firefighters are firemen.
