Definitely ready for some football

With the Orioles having another not so stellar season, we have both been looking forward to football. And maybe I can't blame it all on the Orioles, it could be the record breaking summer we had and we want the cooler weather, or even the fact we are ready for some tailgates that include friendly games of cornhole and finally getting the chance to use our firepit. Well whatever it is, we are ready to watch the Washington Huskies on Saturdays and Baltimore Ravens on Sundays!

With all that being said, the first Ravens home game is not until the end of September. So while we were ready for them, they weren't coming down to Baltimore for a little while. Also, we were unable to get to training camp because it is an hour outside of the city, and typically Monday-Friday while we are at work. However... the Ravens brought one training camp session down to M&T Bank stadium on a Saturday, so we walked down and got to take in a day of football.

The Ravens opened the stadium to fans, so we could sit wherever we wanted. We were able to make it about 8 rows back to watch Baltimore QB Joe Flacco warm up on the sidelines. (And for those of you in Seattle, that is in fact Jim Zorn to the left of Flacco in the white shirt and black shorts. Brought on as Baltimore QB coach)

My personal favorite Raven, Todd Heap. A Pac-10 product out of Arizona State. Can't wait to hear the Heap chants this fall!

Offensive line drills. Tyler used this practice as a chance to get soem drills for his Lansdowne High team.

QB huddle. Troy Smith out of Ohio State and a Heisman Trophy winner, Joe Flacco who is probably the first franchise quaterback in team history, and Mark Bulger.

After individual drills, the team also ran some inter-squad drills.

Team huddle at the end of the three hour practice.

Number 74, Michael Oher. Many of you may remember his story that was brought out in the movie The Blindside

Joe Flacco again, still focused after practice ends. Ready to win a Super Bowl in Baltimore!

Self-taken photo. We are getting pretty good at these!

And then a nice couple took a picture for us. It was a great day, and now we are ready for the regular season!
