Usually I get done before they are done, so today I decided to go around and mess with the guys a bit. I was being a sniper photographer, taking pictures of them when they were least expecting it. I got some good shots of Heath, Hines, Deshea and bunch more. Joey was sitting down, surrounded by media and looking over his shoulder to answer a question.
I snuck in from the other side
and grabbed this one guys microphone, which was on the end of a long
pole. I slowly put crept the microphone up to Joey's face until
it was about a half inch from his face. He finally turned and saw
and started laughing, saying he was two seconds from swatting the
microphone to the ground. It was hilarious.
Practice went well. It was nice to get back to football, throwing the ball and running plays, and not dealing with the hype. All in all I'm enjoying the experience, but I just want to win this game more than anything. I am keeping a low profile out here, getting rest and studying up.
I will have to start to taper these blogs down as we get closer to the game, so hopefully you understand. A bunch of teammates and I went to Jerome's parents' house for dinner. It was unreal. So much great food, and so many great people. I send a special thanks out to Jerome's parents for the hospitality. They are awesome.
From there we went to the Pistons game and sat courtside. There were a lot of other NFL players there, and they were all excited for us this week. From there, I returned to the hotel and shot some pool with Ryan, then went to bed. Talk to you again tomorrow. Go Steelers.
