Alright, I finally got on top of things. I’ve started shopping for my family.
I’m just kind of looking around, shopping for my mom, my dad, my brothers and sisters and all — friends and family. As I see something I’ll grab it, basically. So that’s been fun.
It feels good to be able to take care of your family a little bit, be able to give back. They’ve been helping me out since I’ve been little, so it’ll be good to see everybody.
As far as what I want for Christmas, I don’t know. Just probably to hang out with my family. I’ve been away for so long, just seeing them will be a good gift for me. Plus I’m excited to give them their gifts.
Speaking of giving gifts, a couple days ago — Tuesday, actually — I went with some of the other rookies to The Sports Authority store to help give some kids some Christmas presents. That was an experience. Each one of them had a gift certificate for 100 dollars, so it was fun to go around and see what they wanted to buy. It’s always good to hang out with the kids. They all have such different personalities, and it’s just good to give back and have a good time with them.
A couple of you asked questions the past few weeks, so I’ll get to those real quick.
One question asked who I think the toughest challenge would be in the playoffs. I don’t want to cop out, but to be honest, everybody’s a challenge. Just because everybody steps up huge in the playoffs, everybody’s playing to their full ability, and everybody wants to win. Plus, in this league, you never know what could happen. You can’t take anything for granted.
As far as my offseason plans, I’ll just be staying in Denver. I’ll be here rehabbing up, just trying to get my knee strong with conditioning and training. I’m going to be working on trying to better myself in the playbook, as well. Just trying to stay on top of that and be ready to go full speed when I get healthy.
With my rehab right now, everything’s going smoothly. I don’t have to use crutches anymore — I didn’t have to be on them too long, thank goodness. Now I’m just pretty much getting my leg strong, trying to get the quad back up to strength. I’m just taking it day by day. Right now I’ve got a brace that I’m wearing, and I’ll probably have this on for a week, week and a half. Then it’s just normal walking around.
Yep, everything’s going well and I feel good. And you can’t ask for much more than that on the holidays.
