We made our annual trip to the New England Patriots Training Camp.
A few observations:
- Record crowds on hand every day of camp.
- Randy Moss is really smooth. He can catch the ball in stride better than anyone I've ever seen.
- Adalius Thomas is really big for a linebacker. He was hanging out with Tedi Bruschi - hopefully absorbing the details of the Pats defense.
- The crowd cheers for everything. At one point, the offense had to do a penalty lap around the field for jumping offsides. They got a wild round of applause from the crowd!
- One fan had a Lonnie Paxton jersey on and a sign that read "I just want a hug, Lonnie!" I had never seen a Paxton jersey before.
