    SATURDAY!! 7/28/07!!

    today was AMAZING at training camp for me!! i wasn't able to make it to morning practice since i was still hammered, but i ventured on top the grounds about 15 minutes after afternoon practice had begun.

    while in the Vikings Village (store basically), i was eyeing a black and gold vikings football, a nice item for autographs, and decided to buy it, and damn i'm glad i did

    If i didn't spend the five minutes doing that, i already would have been sitting down in the bleechers watching practice.. but instead..! I was walking past the Alltell trailor/tent thingy and i hear over the speakers "line up now! the next 20 people in line will win free VIP passes"

    I was #18
    ;D

    Along with a free vikings hat, free bracelet, free drink vouchers, and amazing seats to watch practice, there were all sorts of surprises.

    First up, we all got to go out onto the field and watch practice from the endzones for a while. After that, i sat down for a while and chatted about this years vikes with some guys i met, rumor was spreading fast that four vikings would be coming to the VIP Tent after practice for autographs, one of them being Chester Taylor.

    Sure enough.. that rumor was true once practice ended players were walking by the tent heading to the showers and Tavaris Jackson & Marcus McCauley stop and sign autographs.

    Then.. over the speakers in the tent you hear that the players are coming in and to wait then get in line, they anounce them one by one as they enter heres the list as they announced it:

    Running Back, Chester Taylor
    Linebacker, Dontarrious Thomas
    Wide Reciever, Chandler Williams
    Wide Reciever, Boby Wade
    Wide Reciever, Sydney Rice

    thats about it for my day at camp, had a great time and got 7 new autographs! it was awesome

    oh, and when it comes to players i guess i should give my imput.
    Shianco so far has been disappointing from what i've seen, i saw him drop a few passes on simple drills, with no defender on him.

    and my golden pick, Jason Carter, had an amazing one handed catch to a ball that was underthrown behind him

    Sure, brag about your day to everyone.. I am so jealous right now.. I wish I was there watching the Vikings TC, instead of hearing about the Packers TC every night on the news here in Wisconsin..

    Didn't you see Caj in the VIP tent? He was there.

    You were located in the endzone wilst Webb, Shock, Neum, Viking_Queen & I were nestled on the 50 yard line in the Season ticket owners tent.

    Did I mention the interview by ESPN? I guess you'll just have to wait for the fall preview edition to hit the newstand.

    Cajun, VQ & I were ther all day. In the Season Ticket holder area during morning practice, we were treated to drinks, muffins, donuts, & rolls.

    Then we went over to the autigraph area where I got EJ Henderson & Kevin Williams' autographs.

    We also spent time watching the cheerleaders put on their training show for the little girls who wish to become future MVC's.

    And you didn't even stop to say hi.


    We have a ton of pics to post, so watch for the thread.........
