Ah to be in the NFL. Multi-million dollar contracts, endorsements and, of course, getting practice off so you can go to the WATER PARK! Woohoo!
Every day when the Chargers start their team meeting, at least one voice from the offensive line suggests that Head Coach Norv Turner take the team to a water park. It became a running joke … until today. Thursday morning when the team gathered for their 8 a.m. meeting, rather than watching film and speaking X’s and O’s, Turner canceled the meeting as well as the team’s 9 a.m. practice and told them to get on the bus.
As soon as Turner made the announcement, his players erupted in cheers and ran out of the meeting room. They spent roughly an hour and a half riding water slides and tube rides and enjoyed the wave pool at Knott’s Soak City in Chula Vista.
Maybe Merriman tore those knee ligaments from running from the wave pool to the lazy river...
