Not me, but be sure to give us your vibe on how the team looks. You were spot on about them last season.

I will be at fan fest but I wont be able to go to camp. I can't wait to get a look at some of the battles and the new guys. Should be an exciting camp. Without smitty practicing it will be interesting to see who steps up...my guess watch for jarrett to emerge.

Won't be there on day 1, but I'll try to make it down there at some point - I want to wait until they get into the real heavy stuff.

Noob question: are there weekend practices, and are they worth going to? I don't think I'm going to be able to take a day off from work during the week.

I WANT to go... But at this point, I don't know that I feel comfortable leaving my preggers wife at home...

It is a 4 hour (at least) trip for me, so I'd be looking at least spending one night if I were to go... I'd even consider 2 nights...

I'm still pretty undecided... :(

There are usually 2 on Saturdays and 1 on Sunday (If I remember correctly)... You can check the practice schedule on the team's site though to be sure...

I've been to weekday and weekend practices, and they are pretty much the same...

Thanks guys. I don't care at all about the autographs, so I'll probably try to hit up a Saturday practice and make a day out of it.

Just remember to get there earlier to pick out the spot you want... it gets crowded...

rayzor... Not an option... lol... The heat is already making her miserable enough, and that TC camp is like standing on the surface of the sun itself...
