For those who were paying close attention, you may have noticed that I spent most the last week at this year’s NFLPA Bowl. The game, which is put on by the NFL to try and get a handful of college football players noticed by pro scouts held events all of last weekend, and I was lucky enough to attend most of them.
Unfortunately though, for those looking for information on the game itself, well, you’re going to have to go someplace else to find it. That’s not what I’m here to talk about. Not here and not now anyway. Because while most of the media was in Carson, California last week to do exactly that- to evaluate the next wave of NFL stars- that couldn’t have been further from my mind.
Instead, I was there for a completely different reason: To take in the glory that in that is Herm Edwards. That’s right, the man who once famously uttered the phrase “You play to win the game,” was in attendance last week as the coach of the National team.
And it’s safe to say that after three days around him, my life will never be the same again.
