Three more days? Four more days? Right. I'm about ready to get this whole thing underway.
Before practice today a couple guys including myself had to get interviewed. We rode
over to the fields early behind a gigantic motorcade that included President [James] Barker.
For whatever reason, being in a huge motorcade makes me look out for insurgents and
mercenaries on roof tops. But good news: we made it.
Anyway, today's practice was
good, but sweet goodness it was hot. Being of pearly-white semi-translucent skin
tone at the height of my winter paleness, I tried to seek shade but to no avail. My
farmer's tan is red and thriving. We received a blessing from coach Swinney today
though. We've been practicing for something close to 7 days straight, so today we
got to take the pads off. That said, we got to work pretty good.
highlight of practice was at the very end when uncle Luke aka Luke sky walker aka
Luther Campbell gave us a free concert. Just kidding. It was more of just some
encouraging words. I literally knew nothing about him until just now. Thanks,
Wikipedia. I guess I missed out on the Miami Hip-hop scene in the 90's. Bummer.
Speaking of rappers though, we all saw lil wayne at the Miami Heat game. And by
"saw" him, I mean identified him by his huge furry white boots. That's about all I
could make out from our seats. We all had a good time watching King James absolutely
decimate the Bobcats, even though I paid $14 for a tiny Papa John's pizza and a flat
I'm currently sitting in my hotel room absolutely wiped. Most everybody stayed in
tonight, and that's probably a good call. My roommate Will Harrison, a wide receiver
who looks more like a crazed UFC fighter, might be the loudest snorer I have ever
heard, so hopefully I'll be able to get some sleep. Might just have to put on the
headphones and drift off to sweet rhymes of Luther Campbell. Got some fun stuff
still to look forward to as we get ready for WV.
