Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban politely declined an invitation to dinner with President Bush.
Dolphins coach Nick Saban doesn’t consider himself a fan of politics, but he understands that when the President of the United States invites you for dinner, you oblige. Unless that request comes during training camp. That’s the reason Saban politely declined an invitation to dine with President Bush on Sunday evening at Joe’s Stone Crab restaurant in Miami Beach.
”That [would have been] a great experience, but it’s a personal experience,” Saban said Monday. “My obligation is to these players right now. Once we commit to camp, I’m out of everything. This is what I’m doing, this is what I’m committed to, and I don’t have to make exceptions for anything or anybody relative to what I’m asked to do outside of here.”
That’s dedication right there. Or something.
Of course, training camp is just practice. Not a game. Practice. Not the game. We’re talking about practice, man. How silly is that? (With apologies to Allen Iverson)
