NFL Star Larry Fitzgerald's Adventure-filled Offseason

Larry Fitzgerald Jr. is best known as a top player in the NFL. But as we recently discovered, the Arizona Cardinals wideout does a helluva lot more than just play football. During the offseason, rather than golfing with geriatrics in Florida, Fitzgerald makes the most of his time off by traveling the world and getting after it on some seriously awesome adventures. I exchanged Tweets with the man himself (a Minneapolis native like me and most of the GearJunkie crew, I might add), and these are a few of Fitz’s top adventure shots from the offseason so far. —Patrick Murphy

I’ve watch you in Pitt 3 years. My oldest daughter was an athletic trainer for Pitt football teammates when I and wife, Pen, came bowl in Arizona — we won’t Pitt how Pitt should make against Utah. I should Larry plenty behavior of Pitt players. Arizona Cardinals’ Larry watch a very NFL WR. I made a stroke on 2006.

Dan, I have zero idea what that is supposed to say.

Nick, I concur. That paragraph of words from Dan makes no sense.

If you look closely you will see that Dan had a stroke in 2006.

Incorrect, he made a stroke in 2006.

Seems like he had a stroke in the middle of typing that paragraph.

LOL, to everyone here. I will say this. I own a popular fantasy football site and obsess over these players WAY too much. However, if you are ever going to obsess over a player, this is the guy. Truly an elite person on and off the field. My man-love for Fitz know’s no bounds. Was really hoping my Vikings would somehow work a deal to spend Harvin down there this off-season and bring Fitz back home to MN. This guy does in an off-season what I hope to get to in my lifetime! Go Fitz
