Bowl Games: Apparently NOT like a vacation

Yeah, it's fair to say these dudes are tougher than both of our football teams

I'd like to start off by saying that, while I understand I have far more free time at work than a lot of you, there's still no excuse for the lack of participation on the blog today considering the circumstances this evening. I'm very disappointed in all of you.

As for my post, I was just going to say that Boise may not want to use this story as a recruiting tool. When I read about the bowl games, it sounds like there is definitely a lot of work involved, but it's also a time for for the teams to be active in the community, go see a few attactions, and really enjoy themselves as a reward for a successful season. Unless you're a redshirt athlete at Boise. Then you get to train with the Navy Seals at 7:00 AM. I am not sure if any of you have watched the Navy Seals BUD/S training on the Discovery Channel, but I have, and it's anything but a vacation. Honestly, anyone who can make it through that gauntlet is probably in the top 1% of toughest people on earth. For anyone who denies this, I urge you to read Marcus Luttrell's Lone Survivor, which is a true account of the worst loss of life in SEAL history, but also outlines in great detail all the training it takes to become a SEAL. Regardless, after being a hitting dummy in practices all year, I'm sure this isn't the reward the young Broncos had in mind.
