I know the title messed with you guys but I have to brag a little. I got an AFC Championship ring in “86″, but I just got my Superbowl win last weekend in “Islamorada, Florida” winning the fly division of the Rolex IGFA Inshore Championships. It’s a tournament where you had to win a tournament in 2007 to be invited. If you win a tournament or come in 2nd and the 1st place finisher doesn’t go, 2nd place participant gets asked.
I finished 2nd or runner-up to Wade Boggs last year in a Key West Redbone Celebrity Charity tournament for Cystic Fibrosis and he didn’t go, so as runner-up, I was asked. We fished 3 days for 5 different species for points and it was “better to be lucky than good”. Some of you may remember the story of that tournament as it hit the Mike & Mike show on ESPN inaccurately.
Like they say, a blind squirrel finds an acorn, right!
O.K. Camps just around the corner….it’s T it up time and let’s get going baby!! Funny how memories start flooding in. I use to HATE the drive to Greeley and the smell….man. Coming from Miami and the coastal smells of the tradewinds and saltwater….Greeley was a shocker, just imagine. We lived in dorms and would spill water on the pizza guys delivering pizza’s. I know “juvenile” comes to thought but you had to get a laugh somewhere during two-a-days and we’d have 120 guys in camp. I’ll tell a few funny stories as we get into camp blogs.
Remember we were 23-year old kids/guys trying to make a football team so some of the stories will make you laugh and also think I was missing a bolt or two (which I’ve been accused of before) and I always say. If the shoe fits, wear it!! )
