Believe it or not, some football stars are using their NFL Lockout prep-time constructively instead of trolling people on Twitter or boxing Kimbo Slice. The above video is a local news report about Washington Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander learning what it’s like to be a firefighter. Sports blogs are usually just esoteric nonsense, so take a minute out of your day to watch a pleasant clip that would’ve gotten me all inspired and misty-eyed about heroes when I was five. This would’ve been the coolest field trip ever. They get to spray the hose!
I would give up the life of a blogger and do something noble like fighting fires if I had the dexterity and good luck to get through making lunch without burning myself.
