Agree. They may be professional athletes, but they are still people who do go home at the end of the night (obviously when they aren't at away games). It's good for the prospects to see the South Florida way of life and let them understand and experiment with it and most importantly enjoy it. Nothing wrong with trying to sell the prospects on the area they will live and help them fall in love with it potentially. They're still humans.

I like this approach.
