Packers wrap up successful Tailgate Tour

Last evening marked the fourth and final stop on this year's edition of the Packers Tailgate Tour. Packers President Mark Murphy and players Chad Clifton, Nick Collins, James Jones and John Kuhn spent this last week seeing a lot of the state of Wisconsin they might not normally see...or even know existed outside of Green Bay and Milwaukee: Rhinelander, Chippewa Falls and Reedsburg. They visited schools, businesses and even the Leinenkugel Brewery. Their final stop in Milwaukee was the Harley-Davidson Museum for a gathering with fans.

But before that event kicked off, they made a surprise stop at the Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center near Miller Park (home of the Brewers) in Milwaukee.

Whether in the hinterlands of Wisconsin, at the Veterans Center, or in the heart of Harley-land in downtown Milwaukee, the players and team President made a great impression on fans. In fact, they even may have picked up a few new fans along the way. But don't take my word for it. Check out this article and see for yourself.

This is why we're Packer fans. Great guys and a great organization. Not just now. Always.

Go Pack Go!!!
