...oh, one other observation of note: they had LaFell working with the group that was returning punts.

...didn't want to spend much time discussing my time with the obnoxious cowboys fan (who seem to be there mostly to try and piss people off) but a guy behind us yelled down at him to take his jersey off and he got into some banter with the guy. At one point, the idiot cowboys fan said he was also a Michigan fan - so I interrupted and told him he should get Armanti's autograph while he was there - LOL

Thanks guys, more will come to me as I sit here and think about it...

I should also mention Cam came out to a nice round of cheers from the crowd and it definitely fired him up, he pointed to the crowd several times in appreciation. He was getting cheered on just about every pass he completed.

One of the biggest cheers he got was in a drill where the QB's were handing off to the HB's while the o-line blocked the d-line and linebackers. Both Clausen and Pike handed off each time... Cam came up for his first snap, faked the hand-off and took off running.

Smitty made a nice catch while being covered by # 35 which I believe is RJ Stanford? They were battling pretty aggressively off the line but Smitty got around him and made the catch on the sideline, then spun the ball and pounded his chest... it was a classic 89 moment.

You were behind my wife and I when we were buying beer tickets and getting our wristbands. I think you guys even spoke. I thought you looked familiar from the pic I've seen on here but didn't feel like asking a stranger "are you Catman on the internetz?" Next time I'll say hello.

Ahhhh, okay - I noticed your kids had the face painting thing so I asked your wife where they got it because my daughter is all about the face painting... what a coincidence! LOL

Those $2 beers were nice! I was actually a little surprised to see they were serving beer there.

Yup, he really impressed me today (apparently he impressed Person and others as well). He looked like a WR, made one spectacular catch and several really nice catches, looked very smooth and quick.

How would you compare todays practice to the typical boring Fox practice? Sounds like there was a lot of energy tonight?

There was a lot of energy tonight, guys were getting after it pretty hard... wouldn't be surprised if the coaches were telling them to pull back a little bit.

There was definately more energy this year than the 1st practice last year but I think a lot of that was generated by Cam's presence... the place was ready to explode every time he completed a pass and I'm sure the players could feel that.

Great to have you back out there CatMan! This is what I've been waiting for man!

Wanted to ask you though, did Smitty look back to his old explosive form? Or does he look like he's losing some of that athleticism (as I thought last year) and learning to play around it?
