When you think of a surfer, the image that comes to mind is of a tan, lean blond guy with sinewy muscles and salt in his bleached out blond hair. You don’t typically think of a football player.
Well, last week, while in town for the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, a bunch of NFL players took to the beach for some surf lessons. It’s like the movie Blue Crush (yes, I admit to watching this movie) when Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth) meets Matt, a quarterback in town for the Pro Bowl and wants to surf. Except this time, it was 11-time World Champion Kelly Slater and Reed McIntosh teaching the players to surf, not Kate Bosworth. They took Drew Brees, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons, and Doug Flutie out on the water and taught them a few things. You can see some video here.
