The Packers Tailgate Tour surpassed the halfway point with a tailgate party at Superior High School to support the National Bank of Commerce Spartan Sports Complex.

Prior to the party, the members of the Tailgate Tour had the opportunity to participate in the groundbreaking of the complex.

Mark Murphy saluted the community for their backing of the new facility.

“This will be a wonderful addition to the community,” Murphy said. “Sports events are a great way to bring a community together and these fields will be used for many different sports by both boys and girls teams.”

After the ceremony concluded, Paul Coffman kept digging and implored the rest of the participants to continue their work.

“Hey, we’ve got work to do,” he said. “Let’s stay out here and get these fields built.”

Inside the gymnasium, more than 400 fans were on hand to hear from the tour members and receive autographs.

Mason Crosby was asked about the kicking changes that will be tried out this preseason.

“It will be interesting to see what happens,” Crosby said. “If they end up implementing the longer extra points, it will definitely give kickers more value.”

Lynn Dickey enjoyed reminiscing for the crowd about his memories of the famous Snowbowl game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1985. The game took place during a snowstorm and saw nearly 10 inches of snow fall during the game.

“It was incredible,” he said. “I’ve never experienced anything like it. I couldn’t see the far end of the field at times.”

During the autograph session, Crosby, as he had done all day long, gave high fives to many fans.

“Hey, it’s national high five day,” he said. “Let’s go. Spread it around!”
