Saints RB Reggie Bush Providing Exclusive Content For CBS SportsLine
Former Heisman winner, now NFL rookie writing weekly journal
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, September 5, 2006 - CBS SportsLine, a leading Internet sports media organization and part of CBS Digital Media, has teamed up with New Orleans Saints RB Reggie Bush to give fans a glimpse into the life, both on and off the field, of one of the NFL's most exciting rookie players in years. Bush will be contributing a weekly column on CBS SportsLine from training camp all the way through the end of the NFL's regular season.
Bush's columns will appear every Wednesday on CBS SportsLine's NFL homepage (http://www.sportsline.com/nfl) and as his first piece (8/16) showed, will include rare insight into the world of an NFL rookie - often a learning experience.
"I was fined by the NFL this week. My shoe wasn't approved by the NFL, because there was gold on it, and I got fined for wearing it. I might have to switch shoes, but hopefully we can get it approved this week."
Other entries in the journal give a glimpse into the kid in Bush:
"Madden 2007 came out last week. I had it sent to me, but I haven't had a chance to play it yet. It's kind of crazy to play as yourself in the game. I grew up playing Madden and College Football and now I get a chance to play as myself. It's surreal." (8/30)
Bush won the Heisman Trophy in 2005 after leading the nation with an average of 222.3 all-purpose yards per game and rushing for 1,740 yards and 16 touchdowns for Southern California. He was selected by the Saints in the first round (2nd overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft.
