So I went to my first training camp on Tuesday. It was incredibly hot, especially for the first hour before a few clouds came to help out. You're a little far from the action and it's hard to tell what's going on sometimes, but it's worth the trip just to see what you can see.
These are not the greatest photos in the world, but hey, we've got maximum excitement and 8 more hours to kill, so what the heck, right?
The facility, very nice arrangement:
The backup and the backup-backup were out early throwing it around:
Our defending punter and new long snapper were early too:
Da main man! Red shirt = please do not maul me during training camp
Marques Colston manages to look like a star even in drills:
Lance caught everything in sight as usual:
Healthy crowd onhand:
Reggie fielding a punt:
Devery catching in a lot of traffic:
Lance scoring...he doesn't really need the don't-maul-me shirt, no one in sight
New guy Heath makes a nice catch in the flat for 7 or 8 yards:
Drew and Lance stay late for a few extra reps:
I can't say enough about Drew Brees. He's 2 days back from his mother's untimely passing, has a great practice, stays 20 minutes late working with Lance, and then signs 150 or so autographs. He would have needed to sign 150 more to get to my spot in line, but I cannot complain...stand up guy.
