Day 17: Tuesday, August 17, 2010
So as you can see by the number of pictures I have of him (there's more, shocker right?), Tebow had a good practice this day. He was present till the very end. I swear in that one picture, he looked right at me or at least that's the way it looks from the picture. He's looking my way. At the end of practice I was able to get autographs from Zane Beadles, Seth Olsen & Eric Olsen, (it was Oline day). lol
Oh and I got a funny story about this day. I went with my friend Dave to this practice (he lives like 10 minutes away from the TC facilities). Anyway, the boys were getting ready to run a play and I needed to adjust some things with my camera. Well, they had already started and right as I was about to look up their way to maybe take a picture Orton throws this pass towards the sidelines where the fans are sitting. Funny part is... when he threw that pass, of course, we all expected the guy he was throwing it to, to catch it, right?? Psh, the ball flies threw the receivers hands and guess who its headed directly to? ME!!! haha, This whole time I was still playing around with my camera but I knew Orton had thrown the ball near our sidelines. So, while I wasn't paying attention, Dave was and 2 seconds before that ball would have hit me smack in the left eye leaving a pretty big shiner, Dave raises his right hand and stops the ball right as I was about to look up. I looked at him and just started laughing. I kept giving him crap about how he should've let it hit me so I could go home with my first black eye and say I got this from Kyle Orton! LOL But I'll tell you what, had I been paying attention and saw that ball coming, I would've caught that ball in no time. Wish I had seen it coming, that would've been sweet.
Alright I'm done with my short novel here. Enjoy the pics!!
Tebow spent the majority of this day inside. He left right in the middle of some of the stretching but stayed long enough to "skip" with the other grown men. lol From what I saw the day before, Matthew Willis (#12) had a better day on Wednesday. At the end of the day, I was fortunate to get 2 more autographs from Phonzy (seen in the first picture) and Brandon Lloyd (#84). Lloyd is probably one of the coolest guys I've ever met. Was an awesome day!
