Wearing jerseys for the first time, players donned leis as they posed with teammates and hula girls for official photos. Players then made a short walk to the practice field, stopping frequently for photos with family along the way.
Practicing under blue skies was a welcome change after yesterday’s heavy rain. Picking upthe pace, New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie repeatedly stepped in front of receivers on their routes. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning delighted the small crowd of fans that had formed when he took off on a rare run to their side.
Also in a attendance was the Make-a-Wish Foundation. After practice players stopped by the foundation’s tent to take photos and sign autographs.
Tomorrow is ‘Ohana Day, the final practice before Sunday’s game. ‘Ohana Day serves as family day, allowing fans free admission into Aloha Stadium to watch both Pro Bowl teams go through their practice session.
