See the fish above. That’s a Tarpon. I know many of you don’t care because it has nothing to do with football, but it kinda does. I’m going dinosaur hunting down in Belize before camp starts. So give me a week to tell you if they won or not….by the way…..they usually win.
The reason I mention the “BEFORE CAMP starts” comment is, this a funny time of year for me because, we are approaching the 4th of July weekend. The end of June meant you better get whatever trip or recreational activity you wanted to do all off-season out of the way because the the 4th of July was only, right around the corner.
That weekend (July 4th) is the LAST real weekend/holiday you had off and the weekend you said, “I better be ready,” to go to camp and you had to gauge what kind of shape you were in and YOU BETTER BE READY for the upcoming punishment.
We use to have 120 guys in camp and when in Tampa, we had 3-a-days. Yep, in that weather. I’ll tell you a few crazy stories about the heat and the practices in upcoming blogs. Anyway, this time of year was the time you started to get mentally ready for the 2-a-days in Greeley or 3 in Tampa. I use to go down to Tampa a month early and run at noon everyday to get use to the heat and before I left Denver I’d workout at the old IAC on Parker road and hit the sauna and the steamroom getting prepared to go. Crazy what we use to do to our bodies.
Be back in a week to see who won the dinosaur tug-a-war.
