Bront Bird Blog: "It's Been a Rollercoaster Ride"

Posted Sep 12, 2013

Today's blog comes courtesy of linebacker Bront Bird.


Last week was a tough loss and it hurt because obviously whenever you go into halftime with a lead, you have to finish.  What hurts the most is that we worked so hard in the offseason and it feels like we failed as a group.  That’s what makes it tough.  That being said, I remain encouraged.  We see how good we can be when everyone is playing as a unit.  That goes for the offense, defense and special teams.  We have a special group.

Getting the opportunity to start was special because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Opening night on Monday Night Football, it was unbelievable. When they called my name and I ran out of that tunnel it was an adrenaline rush that I can’t even explain.  I got tunnel vision.  I couldn’t see anything or hear anything.  I was zoned in.  It’s wild. 

Thinking about where I came from last year it’s been a rollercoaster ride.  Not making the team out of training camp last year to this year, it’s crazy going from one extreme to the other.  But everything happens for a reason and I’m going to make the most of this opportunity.

I was asked to share something with you guys that you may not know about me.  Well, I enjoy spearfishing. I love being underwater and using a spear gun or a pole with an elastic band on it.  I started doing it back in Texas about four or five years ago, and it’s a lot of fun. Doing it out here in San Diego is a lot of fun.  There are lots of fish, but you have to be careful not to go after the fish you aren’t allowed to get.  Now that the season’s started I don’t do it very often, but in the offseason I do it once every three or four days.  It’s sweet!

So that’s really it for me. Thanks for the support.  We’re going to go out there and try to put on a show for you every week.
