Packers play some Hokey Pokey

Posted by Aaron Popkey on April 18, 2014 – 11:46 am

140418-coffman-dance-300Day two of the Packers Tailgate Tour is underway and the group enjoyed its first stop, a surprise drop-in at the Golden Living Center in Superior.

The members of the tour participated in a morning exercise session with the seniors who live at the facility, including a game with a parachute. They also helped wish a resident a happy 105th birthday.

Paul Coffman then added another exercise routine with an impromptu rendition of the “Hokey Pokey,”

The group also had the pleasure of another visit with Alex Wizbicki, a Packers alumnus who lives at the facility. He was at Thursday night’s event at Superior High School. The 93-year-old former two-way back played in 11 games for the Packers in 1950 and made two interceptions.

“It’s unbelievable these guys stopped in today,” he remarked. “What a nice visit for everyone here.”

Wizbicki cherishes his experience with the Packers and continues to appreciate the unique story of the franchise’s success and popularity.

“I used to travel for business and the notoriety the Packers brought to Wisconsin was amazing,” he said. “The team has always represented Green Bay with class. I have great memories of my time with the team and the respect fans have for the players.”

The motor coach is headed south to Hayward.
