'Bubba's Bike' Winners Meet Packers TE


Four Green Bay-area youngsters were lucky enough to win a chance to meet Packers' star tight end Bubba Franks, as the Packers, ShopKo and Reebok teamed up on a promotion with the local Boys & Girls Clubs to further the great Packers tradition of players riding children's bicycles to practice.

The winners each received a custom-made dual suspension 'Bubba's Bike' from Magna.

Not only would they get the bike, but Franks broke in the bikes for them as he rode their new bicycles to and from the team's training camp practice field across the street from Lambeau Field for Friday's practices.

Two winners were chosen at random from entries at the four local Green Bay ShopKo stores, and the other two were selected by the Green Bay Boys & Girls Club.

The lucky winners also received tickets to the August 21 Packers preseason game, and will be on hand as Green Bay takes on the New Orleans Saints.
