Redskins Training Camp

Took the morning off today and headed over to Redskins Training Camp. The best thing for me about this besides being up close to the players, is the location. Redskins Park is a five minute drive from our house. I arrived there at 7:30 AM for the 8:30 AM session and I was able to stand in the second row of people. Later, the place filled up with fans. From my vantage point, I was able to get close to 100 pictures but next time I would love to get a VIP pass which enables you to stand in front of the barriers on the sidelines. It was a very hot and steamy morning so if anyone who reads this heads out there, bring a lot of water. I was able to get some at the food stand they have there. As usual, click for a bigger view of the pictures. Enjoy and Hail to the Redskins!

Here is an interesting story. Mike Williams is an offensive lineman
who has been out of football since 2005. He has shed over 100 pounds
in his comeback attempt and weighs around 340. Here he chats with
Offensive Line Coach Joe Bugel.

Quarterback Jason Campbell says all is well!

have a huge year

Rookie Cornerback Kevin Barnes (University of Maryland)
His hit on Cal's Jarvis Best last September was a You Tube
sensation. Now he's a rookie trying to earn a job. Note the
absence of a helmet decal. Rookies need to earn their decal.
