Jake Plummer Returns to Colorado and Handball

It appears Jake Plummer has left the seclusion of Sandpoint behind and followed his passion back to Colorado.

The New York Times published a feature about Plummer over the weekend, noting he had purchased a home in Colorado and even attended the Broncos' season opener using a ticket provided him by the team's owner, Pat Bowlen. The author also wrote about the Snake's affinity for handball. Who woulda thunk?

"Plummer drank beer, attended reggae concerts and passed time at his lake house.

Yet he still had a craving for competition. So he devoted himself to a family tradition: handball.

Plummer's father picked up the game while working at a lumber warehouse and taught it to his sons. In the past 10 years, Plummer's older brothers, Brett and Eric, have combined to win six Idaho singles titles. Jake was part of a team that won the 2010 Idaho doubles championship. Plummer loved the game so much that in October 2008, he started his own leg of the American professional tour called the Helluva Handball Bash in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. " - The New York Times

The piece is definitely work the read, if nothing else but to see how an Idaho boy has gone from NFL star, to early retirement and self-imposed isolation in Idaho, and then back to the game that made him famous.
