Every year in training camp, Wesley Woodyard swears off his favorite treat: flavored shaved ice.
But when Brian Orakpo sponsored a Kona Ice truck to be open on the sideline after Tennessee Titans practice Monday, Woodyard had every flavor available, in five different cones.
And when coach Mike Mularkey sponsored a second day …
“I had three more today,” said Woodyard, a starting inside linebacker. “Grape and pina colada, those are probably the two best ones. That’s my weakness. It sucks, every time I go to camp I get on a no-Icee kick. I was like, I don’t want a regular ice-cream truck. But a frozen-ice truck? I am there.
“I stay away from them in camp. I made an exception. And I went too far.”
Orakpo said he came up with the idea as something different for the team after hot days.
“We’ve been grinding,” he said. “It’s just something nice, different, a change of scenery. Practice is over. Instead of coming in, it’s a nice treat after a long, physical, hot day.
“Wood loves this thing.”
