Postcards from Hawaii - Josh Sitton

Posted Jan 25, 2013


For the first time in his career, Packers G Josh Sitton is a member of the NFC Pro Bowl squad. An alternate in the initial voting, Sitton was named to the team in place of 49ers G Mike Iupati, who is playing in the Super Bowl. Sitton is only the third Packers guard in the last 40 years to make the Pro Bowl, joining Gale Gillingham and Marco Rivera.

Packers.com caught up with Sitton as the NFC’s week of practices concluded, and he sends this update from Hawaii.

Everything is so chill out here. We have practice, but it’s just 45 minutes, and we’ve been done by noon every day.

This is my third time in Hawaii – I played in the Hawaii Bowl my sophomore year in college, and then the Hula Bowl was my all-star game – but this trip means the most.

It means everything. It’s one of those career goals that I’ve had. Super Bowl, Pro Bowl and All-Pro, I think we all aspire to those three. We’re all kind of created in the same way. We have that want-to, that will to be the best, and it feels great to be out here amongst the best. There are rookies out here and there are guys that I’ve grown up watching, so it makes you prideful to be amongst these guys, for sure.

Watching the NFC Championship Game last week, I knew exactly what was at stake for me, and I was definitely hoping the 49ers would win. Obviously, I’m still disappointed about our loss, but you have to take it in stride, and this is such a great opportunity. I wish we were still playing, but I’m glad to be out here. One of those bittersweet type of things.

I brought a few people out here with me. My mom, my aunt, my brother and my best friend are all here. They all went to Pearl Harbor yesterday (I’ve been there before) while I went to a different military base for an NFL Play 60 event. We had a lot of fun with all the kids. Today we’re going to hit the golf course.

Otherwise, we’re just chilling and being lazy until the game on Sunday. How hard guys are going to play has been a topic of discussion around here, so I guess we’ll see. These guys are the best of the best, so I’m planning to go play a full, hard game.

The last big event will be Monday, when we go deep-sea fishing. I’ve caught a few big fish, but I’ve never caught a big sailfish or marlin or tuna, so that’s what we’re going for, a big game fish. Hopefully I’ll be putting a big marlin on my wall.
