Larry Fitzgerald has gone Zen in Chile. Hes visited the troops in Kuwait and Iraq. Hes photographed the Roman Colosseum. Hes lent a hand across drought-stricken Africa, and hes helped distribute hearing aids in Malaysia and Thailand.
So what do you give a guy whos seen every continent, except, as he pointed out in May, Antarctica, which he joked hell visit "hopefully in late February?"
How about a trip into space?
I try to make decisions .. within my means, the Cardinals Pro Bowl receiver told Darren Urban of azcardinals.com this week before revealing hed love to blast off into the final frontier. I want to go into orbit. But it costs a million dollars right now, and thats out of my budget.
This is the same Fitzgerald who signed an eight-year, 120 million deal with the Cards last offseason that guarantees him 50 million. Not in his budget? If not him, then who?
Well, Fitzgerald has never been your typical NFL diva receiver.
He doesnt crow about his accomplishments. He doesnt draw attention to himself. He doesnt bad-mouth his coaches, owners or teammates. So it should come as no surprise that he is also fiscally responsible.
In a couple of years, when that (price) comes on down a little bit, I will do that and try it out, said Fitzgerald from his annual summer camp in Minnesota. Right now, its on my bucket list.

In a recent interview with Darren Urban of the Arizona Cardinals' website, Fitzgerald said he wants to someday go to space. "I try to make decisions ... within my means," Fitzgerald told Urban. "I want to go into orbit...
Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals is many things. A Leader, an Elite Wideout, and….. an Astronaut?
Well, maybe not an Astronaut quite yet, but he has plans of going into orbit one day. The Cardinals star receiver was quoted by the Team’s Official Website saying that he has plans to travel outside of this world one day – just not now, because the price is too high.
When the Cardinals used the 13th overall selection on Michael Floyd in the 2012 NFL Draft, they did it in an attempt to take away some of the bracket coverage from Larry Fitzgerald and to potentially recreate what they had a few years ago with Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. It was also done possibly at Larry Fitzgerald’s urging as Fitz reportedly asked the Cardinals to take...
Larry Fitzgerald didn’t get to where he is at by slacking, so when he invites you to work out with him, show up. Michael Floyd found that out when Fitzgerald sent a tweet, putting the rookie receiver on blast.
Just finished a great workout with @Wellefast. I'm charging @MichaelMFloyd with a DWI "don't want it" he missed a 3rd straight workout 2day.
Like most of you, we are itching for football season to start. In the midst of the dog days of summer, many get sick of baseball and start turning their attention to football. Don’t blame you a bit. To help quench your thirst, BC is going on a 32 team, 32 day, 32 gallery tour of NFL cheerleaders/superfans.
Today we bring you the lovely ladies of the Arizona Cardinals, a cheerleading...
So since WSU Football is all "Mike Leach!" these days, and for the forseeable future, it's probably a good idea to try and learn about the Air Raid offense. You know, Leach's calling card, the spread 'em out and throw it all over the yard scheme that puts up yards and points in bunches? Yeah, that offense will be on full display in Pullman this fall.
Even though it's July, the college football world isn't slowing down. Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com joins Crystal Ball Run managing editor Allen Kenney for a podcast to discuss the imminent release of the Freeh Report regarding the investigation into Penn St.'s handling of the Jerry Sandusky case. After that, in conjunction with CBR's Pac-12 Preview Week, they talk...
