Have you all read the story on Manti Te’o helping the big fella D.J. Fluker conquer his fear of drowning?

Check that out on the UT San Diego: Sink or Swim? Chargers ‘ Top Rookies Bond

I love this story. With all the talk of Manti Te’o and the catfish, this is a story that will get people to change their perceptions. There is also something a little ‘cute’ about a 6-foot-5, 340 pound monster splashing around in the water. HULK SWIM!!!

I love the leadership that Manti has been showing. I love that he is gaining trusts from his fellow rookie. I love that the top 2 selections of the draft are growing together and building a strong relationship that could last for a long time. I am excited about these youngsters. They are going to be leading this team for a long time and stories like this feel real good.

…but how does Manti not know how to surf? Someone get him a stick and let’s paddle out.

    They really do look like they are having fun. Weddle telling T’eo to go look at some film. Omg, I laughed. You can feel it. Not hostile. Even Freeney looks happy.

    Also Akbar on NFL Network said he thinks Rivers is going to rebound this year. You are thinking right now, “So. What does that mean?”. Rumblings, Ernie. It’s starting. Momentum. Chargers could surprise everyone.

    Maybe Fluker will learn to surf next. Then we’re all in trouble. He’d take all the good waves.

    • Gunnar Martin

      And then make enormous ones. So we’re good.
