Reggie Bush tries something different

February 19, 2010 |  4:34 pm


Reggie Bush never watched the Winter Olympics as a kid. He has never skied or ice skated. Snowboarding seems as though it could be fun, but there is probably a clause in his NFL contract prohibiting anything so risky.

"I know," he says. "I'm sure there is."

For now, the New Orleans Saints running back and former USC star will suffice with visiting the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, arriving this week for a four-day vacation not long after his team won Super Bowl XLIV.

"I thought it would be great to come up here and experience something different," he said. "I play football, that's what I've known all my life, so I like to get a chance to see greatness in different areas."

Bush, who flew north without girlfriend Kim Kardashian, planned to take in a hockey game and watch Lindsey Vonn race in Whistler this weekend. He came prepared for winter weather.

"I brought a lot of clothes, like jackets and stuff, but it's warm here," he said. "I got in and I'm like, it's colder in New Orleans right now."
