From Indianapolis, Indiana
The next few days here for the NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium is an attempt to restart a life that has been forever altered.
Whether hanging around the NFL for a few days is a good decision, I do not know; I’ll tell you come Sunday. The emotions come in waves these days, strong and disruptive at times, placid and soothing at other moments. It all remains very surreal, as if I’m watching somebody else’s life. Unfortunately, starring at the ceiling when its 3 o’clock in the morning there is painful recognition it’s my reality.
I’m limping but moving forward. Sooner or later a return to normal, or near normal, has to come. Pro football is here this week in the house Peyton built and it’s a valuable platform to gain information on the league and May’s NFL Draft. So I’m in the circle city, attempting to climb back into the saddle.
In the next few days there will be updates on news coming out of this convention; for instance Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is scheduled to meet with the media Thursday afternoon, GM John Dorsey steps to the podium on Friday and Missouri’s Michael Sam will meet the media on Saturday. There are also players from Missouri Western and Northwest Missouri State that will be passing through, along with more players from Mizzou and a few from K-State. Plus, there’s always a surprise or two.
Many of you have asked about the future of bobgretz.com. At this point, I have no answers to provide, but check back in the coming weeks. The stories from the NFL Combine are available to everyone, so tell friends and football fans to check them out and get a free taste of the site β for now.
I can’t express how important the concern and consideration I’ve received from readers and subscribers has been over the fortnight. It’s been very helpful in dealing with my new normal. Thank you.
Now, onward to the underwear football Olympics!
