Friday was a team picture day for both the AFC and NFC squads. After that was a light walk-through for each team. Brandon and his fiancee took a helicopter tour around the island. I’ve been itching to get in the water for a long time, so I passed and raced down the 16 floors and jumped into the crisp, clear ocean.
The report from the helicopter ride was very positive. There were some scary moments, including one that Brandon described as “we don’t have time to turn, just throw this thing in reverse and let’s get out of here!” They flew right next to a water fall, over Diamond Head crater among other places on the island.
