Finally! Everyday I check Packers.com waiting for something about the Pro Bowl. Anything. Today they have blessed us with something better than I could have ever imagined, Pro Bowl diaries!!!
First up, Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin gives us the information I've been dying for all week. All I wanted to know was, "When did the Packers coaching staff leave? What have they been doing? How many of Joe's six kids did he bring with him to Hawaii?" Joe Philbin answers all those questions, and more.
I'll let you read his diary if you want all the details, but it sounds like the staff got in on Sunday, did some sight-seeing on Monday, and then "practice" started Tuesday. Joe talks a lot about how he met many guys for the first time, and the challenges of getting everybody to understand the same football language.
Packers.com also offers us a look into the life of Al Harris. I think it's a good thing, for Al's sake, that Plaxico Burress wasn't invited to the 2008 Pro Bowl. Al got into Hawaii on Monday, sharing a plane with Reggie Wayne, Peyton Manning, and former Packer Darren Sharper. Al says practice was light, and that Atari Bigby is coming to Hawaii to meet up with his teammates.
Isn't this the kind of stuff you're dying to know?
