While a variety of NFL players spend the week out here in gorgeous Lake Tahoe, they know that when they leave here, it all begins. Training camp is around the corner and it gets amped up incredibly soon.
That’s why they cherish being here. They play golf, they bring their families, they chill out… and if they are smart, they clear their heads.
“You got to get away because you know you’re going to go through the grind,” ex-Major League pitcher David Wells said. “You just want to try to put everything aside and then come out and golf. If they’re smart, they’re not even thinking any football, just relaxing. It’s a grind. You need something to mellow you out, have some fun. Got great scenery, great people around here. Get a couple cocktails in you because you know you’ll have to sweat it out pretty soon.”
