NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee cornerback Cortland Finnegan has a little problem.
He’s terrified of flying, and now he faces a long flight to Hawaii after being named to his first Pro Bowl.
Finnegan says he expects to take 30 people, including friends, family coaches and teammates, with him to Hawaii in case it’s his only appearance in the Pro Bowl.
But earning his trip to Hawaii may be easier than how he actually gets there.
Finnegan says he’s thinking of taking a tranquilizer or something to help him through the flight.
He says he’s really scared and actually has thought of traveling to Hawaii on a cruise ship.
