The Awkward Silence of the Packers Tailgate Tour

The Green Bay Packers are conducting their annual Tailgate Tour this week, and there's tension in the air since the coaches and players can't talk to each other. From ESPN:

Coach Mike McCarthy, general manager Ted Thompson and several other members of the football staff saw the bus off. McCarthy and Thompson shook hands and chatted briefly with the players, with whom they've had virtually no contact since the lockout began...

Although coaches and front-office staff are banned from having contact with players, there is an exception for charitable events such as the tour.

The lucky players who get to exchange awkward silences with their coaches are RG Josh Sitton, LB Desmond Bishop, and QB Matt Flynn
