My AWESOME day at Training Camp

I hope this doesn't bore the hell out of you guys, but I'm so excited after being at camp that I had to share. First, it was a raining, humid morning..to say the least, but I got there before the gates were open and was right on the rail at the start of practice. Some of the pics below have a "haze" to them.. my lens kept fogging. First I want to say how blessed I feel that my son was able to get so many autographs.. what a great bunch of players we have. I was almost in tears, they were soooo generous. OH, and I also have shots of the new Jason Taylor below. Feel free to view at your leisure.

Randy Thomas (not Sellers) was the second one out to the field I believe, Carter was first:

Bugel talking to some of the O line:

Zorn and Collins coming out for practice together:

Portis, and his yellow shoes:

Cooley at the end of a great catch:

Landry (my son's head in the way):

Rogers and V Fox (Fox is in SHAPE!)

Moss lined up (he was awesome today by the way!)

After practice Moss signed for such a long time. He was directly in front of me for most of it.. like 10mins.. I could have kissed him he was so close. People were pushing me into the railing but the wonderful man signed every thing I had:

He signed my ST towel from the memorial game last year, as well as Jansen and Landry:
Here's the towl:

And he signed my son's hat, as well as these other players (I still can't believe it):
Cooley
Landry
Marcus Washington
Todd Collins
John Jansen
Vernon Fox
and the rookie QB....Colt Brennan
Here is the hat:

Here's Jason Taylor:

Smoot:

Marcus Washington signing (he was the best of them all. He signed, and signed, and signed.. talked, took pics.. he was awesome!)

The Zshade:

I have many more pics of them playing, but too tired to post them. I hope you enjoy what I have posted. I still can't believe it!

Nice! Looks like you had a good time.

I think that first pic is Randy Thomas though, no?

Great pics!
I haven't been to training camp in a couple of years but it was a good time when I went in the past. Looks like you and your son lucked out to get such a good spot.

Oh ..shoot. yes, Randy.... I have one of Mike too.. I'm exhausted, but it was worth getting up at 5am!!!

One the fans got Mike's daugher to sign her Skins game ticket for her - yes, I said his daughter singed it... kind of cute.

I did exactly what you guys told me to do. I went in and went down to the left rail, and stayed there. That's where all the players come to sign first. I had Moss' jersey hanging over the rail yelling his name and he came straight over to me.

Good work, Hessy.

I can't believe I haven't been up there yet. How long did it take you get there?

Well, believe it or not there wasn't any traffic. I'm not sure if that's because it's a high vacation time or what, but what I thought would take over an hour didn't. Everything just came together today. No sun, cloud cover, light rain to stay cool, no traffic and the pefect spot on the rail. I couldn't have asked for more..

Oh, and don't be surprised if you see me on Redskins.com, or Comcast Sportsnet... UGH! When Moss was singing my Tayor towel the press swarmed us and took a ton of pics. I was also standing in front of Moss the entire time the press was shooting him, video and still.. I'm wet, and sticky.. not so pretty that's for sure. But I'm the only redhead with a HUGE smile on her face!!

Re: My AWESOME day at Training Camp

So awesome and thanks for sharing. JTaylor looks like a man among boys. I knew he was big but he seems really huge to me. Not like Sellers huge but you know. Anyway thanks so much for sharing I haven't been to camp since the last time they were in PA. Looks super fan friendly though.

Hess is a chick

Hey Hess, what time did you get to camp, and how many people were already there waiting in line for the gates to open when you did? I'm trying to get to camp sometime before Monday and I plan on getting up early so I can either get one of those VIP passes for the lottery tix or I can get a prime spot next to the fence.
