– Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is not afraid to try something new and participate in different experiences. On his year away from the game, he spent part of his time scaling Mt. Kilmanjaro with the Wounded Warriors project.
– But this week, Fisher became somewhat of a YouTube sensation as another recent project of his became public…Fisher made his music video debut, appearing in the band Goodbye June’s video for the song “Microscope” as a cop who is chasing down a villainous litterer.
– The Nashville-based band has had a longstanding friendship with Fisher’s daughter Tara and sought Fisher to make an appearance as well as do the shoot on Fisher’s expansive farm land in Tennessee. The shot took place in a single day back in January, before Fisher signed on as coach of the Rams.
– Fisher was asked about it on Wednesday and said he enjoyed helping out in the making of his first music video before tossing in a shameless plug for the up and coming musicians.
“I had followed the band really from day one and got close to the band members,” Fisher said. “They are great kids and they asked me if I would get involved. It’s a startup band and costs are an issue so we did it down in Nashville. It was a great deal, we did it back in January and I hope you enjoyed it. And you can buy (their music) on iTunes.”
– Goodbye June’s debut album is called “Nor the Wild Music Flow.”
– The video can be seen here:
– The Rams had OTA No. 8 on Wednesday as well as they went through the paces for about two hours.
– Nothing much new on the injury front though C Scott Wells was again an excused absence. T Jason Smith was also given the day off.
– The Rams had originally scheduled four OTAs this week but Fisher said he didn’t want to run the players into the ground in June so he gave the entire team Thursday off. They’ll return to practice Friday before closing up the offseason program with a mandatory, full squad minicamp set for Tuesday-Thursday of next week.
