August 1, 2006 (Morning Session 8:45-10:45)
This morning's session was by far the lightest crowd and one of the most comfortable on the hill for me... Although muggy, it was overcast and not too hot and I was able to spread out. I expected the boys to be in shorts because of tonight's in stadium practice but I was surprised to find that they were dressed in full gear.
Here are the quickies for today... I'm behind on podcasting and hope to get yesterday's show up this afternoon.
* Tom Brady was back on the field after missing 3 straight practices but Tedy was absent missing 3 out of the last 4. Troy was off again today.
*Coming off PUP were Chad Jackson (17) and Bam Childress 13.
* Ellis Hobbs and Artrell Hawkins got down to the Sugar Hill Gang during the stretch today...hehehe!
* Lots of drills today... and running game work down in the opposite end of the field from me.
* Defense came up big in Red Zone work towards the end of the practice hooting and hollering as they continued to stop the running game. Freddie Roach (48) made a big stop holding Maroney out of the end zone.
*It was Gostkowski's turn on the main field today both for kick-offs and field goals. He hit all of them and he didn't disappoint the kids waiting on the hill to catch them.
* DB's signed today and anyone looking for an autograph came up big as there was plenty of room at the ropes.
* Maroney also came over and was quite impressed when Erdoboy asked him to sign his jersey.. and gladly obliged... yippee, Ed!!
* Slow news day... so here's the Mrs. B Fashion Update thus far: Today was Pro-Bowl Bruschi, following Throwback Bruschi, Superbowl 38 Bruschi, Silver Bruschi and White Bruschi... hmmmm.. what will tomorrow bring? One can only venture a guess.. but here's a hint... It'll be a Bruschi!
Today's Soundseeing Tour will be combined with tonight's practice and will be Show #72. www.patriotworld.com
