Well, “just” is kind of a stretch, but I’ve got an update from the Pro Bowl. It took a while for the film to arrive via steamship, then the processing of the film, and finally the printing of the photos but that’s the way things are (in 1920). The truth is, it’s hard to get motivated in the offseason. But I vow to do a better job.
Now…Pro Bowl. Every time I tell people I’m going to the Pro Bowl they always say, “Wow, must be nice!” But you can never really get it into people’s heads that I’m there to work. It’s not like they pay for my ticket and hotel room and just say, “Enjoy Hawaii!” It’s nice to be working in Hawaii but, it’s still work. I really don’t envy people who hate their jobs, because mine is so awesome.
Now, while in Hawaii we visited a couple military bases, some hospitals, the NFL Experience, the Special Olympics, did the Block Party, Ohana (Family in Hawaiian) Day, Pregame Party and, of course, the game. Obviously I didn’t list all the events, but just a sample to give you guys an idea of what goes on. There were 12 of us over there and we split up to cover the events, so we didn’t all attend all of the events.
