Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley didn't make the Pro Bowl this year. He's listed as a second alternate, but won't get to play in the game tonight. But that doesn't mean he's not going to go to Hawaii anyway to participate in the event.â†µ
Since Cooley failed to live up to his promise to create a "Nancy Kerrigan incident" against Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten, he has instead been serving as a correspondent for the NFL Network.â†µ
We all think that Cooley has a great future in broadcasting when he finishes his football career. But as a broadcaster, he'll sometimes have to take on assignments that don't appeal to him. Like when the NFL Network sent him to cover a deep sea fishing trip with Brian Orakpo, Calvin Johnson, and Darrelle Revis this week.â†µ
Cooley elected not ride on the boat with the others. Why?â†µ
"I'm deathly afraid of the ocean. I'm not really afraid of marlins. I'll wrestle a marlin, no questions asked. But I do not like the waves."â†µ
That sounds like a challenge to me. Any Marlins out there will to accept?
