I am a life long Green Bay Packer fan. I have only learned of this tradition in the last year or so. During training camp the players have to get from the locker room to the practice facility. The method of transportation is bicycle. Kids show up with their bikes and each player borrows a bike and “rides” the bike to practice while the bikes owner walks along beside him carrying the player’s helmet.
Jeepers!! To have your bike chosen and to carry the players helmet!! I can only imagine.
