Out for a spin

The article presents the author's experiences on attending the taping of the television program NFL Players Week held at Fort Lauderdale, Florida during January 23-27. The deal at this program is spinning the Wheel of Fortune. Every player backstage was talking about it. They've spun it in practice sessions, and apparently, it's heavy. There's a decent chance that one might not be able to get it all the way around. The author wanted to try it herself. She observed player Roy Williams who was all charged up. He was shaking and shimmying and dancing his way around the stage. He looked like he wanted to play Wheel of Fortune more than doing anything else.
