    Three weeks until the first public training camp. The Pats are almost back!

    Does anyone think there will be a significant roster move before then? Vote on some pipe dream options to pass the time.

    Also, who will be attending camp? I'll be there for the first week and hopefully the joint practice sessions.

    An interesting bit of trivia.

    People commonly are under the misconception that the 4th of July is meant to celebrate the official Congressional signing of our Declaration of Independance from the tyrannical mechinations of squinty toothed men like our Mike the Brit* that cruelly sought to tax our tea and force us to fill our cars with petrol instead of gas...

    ... but the 4th of July origins probably came about because Congress was bored silly waiting for the start of Training Camp.

    :sigh:



    * Mike the Brit's teeth may be as good as an American's for all I know.. **
    ** Just friendly 4th of July ribbing ;)

    I hope to get to camp at least once, but I'll be out of the country for most of it. Counting on all of you to give such vivid reports that it feels like being there!

    That wouldn't let me pick every choice of signing players. I want to sign a different big name every day until camp, even if we have to cut them all, just to make the time go by faster.

    Why would anybody vote stand pat? Who is not for improving the team/fixing holes and weaknesses so that were better equipped to compete/dominate and know were finally going to win the Superbowl rather than HOPE EVERYTHING falls in place and bounces our way. And just hope we get over the hump and win the Superbowl. Even last years AFC and Superbowl champs addressed holes and weaknesses. If Gronk goes down where does that leave us when its time to play the best teams.
