2018 Training Camp: Day 11 Report

I arrived to my spot at the top of the Field 2 berm a little later than usual due to massive traffic on southbound Parker Road due to summer construction work. Thankfully, I did not miss any of yesterday’s action, as I arrived just as the players were midway through stretching. The sun beaming down made it much hotter than it actually was.

There were also a lot of individuals in attendance wearing other teams’ gear, including Chiefs, Steelers, and Vikings garb. I could somewhat understand why some Vikings’ fans were in attendance with the upcoming preseason game, but the others either wanted to troll, to scout a 2018 opponent, or legitimately like any professional football that they can witness in person.

2018 Training Camp: Day 1 Report

The Denver Broncos held their first 2018 training camp practice this morning. The day started out misty and foggy, but the clouds soon burned off, and the weather warmed.

I had plenty of space at the top of the Field 1 berm adjacent to the section roped off for Broncos’ players family members and friends. I sat next Sam Jones’ parents, his significant other, and other family and friends of his. I was able to congratulate Jones’ parents on seeing their son drafted by his hometown team. It was fun to see them looking for and watching their son in positional drills and team sessions.  Continue reading 2018 Training Camp: Day 1 Report

2017 Training Camp: Day 9 Report

A training camp record crowd of 7,085 was on hand yesterday for the shortest practice session thus far in 2017. The weather was partly sunny and warm.

On a personal preference note, this was one of the least enjoyable Broncos training camp sessions that I have ever attended. There were too many impatient and inconsiderate fans at camp moving about during the session. I wish the Broncos would return to holding the summer scrimmage at Defunct Corporate Sponsor Field at Mile High. Continue reading 2017 Training Camp: Day 9 Report

Bennett Blames Stafford for JFK’s Assassination

Following the Seattle Seahawks’ controversial victory over the Detroit Lions last night, Seahawks’ defensive end, Michael Bennett, blamed the assassination of John F. Kennedy on Lions’ quarterback, Matthew Stafford. Bennett’s basis? The fact that Stafford grew up in the Dallas, Texas area. Considering that Stafford was born twenty-five years after JFK’s assassination and how many current and former NFL players grew up in Dallas, Bennett’s commentary should be considered one of the most asinine ever uttered by an NFL player.
