    That was on the ESPN site, but it was an estimated start date.

    I think MANY have speculated that would be the date...they always open on a Friday and with a game early in August if they opened the 1st it would be too late...hence the 25th.

    Re: Pats open camp 7/25

    I'm thinking about going to a camp practice this season. A couple of questions for the vets:

    1. Is it usually packed? Or is there plenty or room to spreadout?

    2. What is the best time to get there?

    3. And where is the best place to sit?

    Re: Pats open camp 7/25

    I've never had a problem finding a place to sit. The best IMO, is on the hill as the bleachers can get quite hot.

    We usually get there 1/2 hr before the start.

    I usually pick an afternoon, mid week, when they've had a morning session.

    Make sure you check web site or call a few hrs before as they've been known to cancel for numerous reasons.

    Re: Pats open camp 7/25

    Absolutely! At the end of practices they designate different players to sign for that day. I'm not sure you'll know in advance of who that'll be, but usually it's 3-4 guys and they rotate throughout the month. In years past they sometimes would have players down by the pro shop too, but I'm not sure they still do that. Just check out where all the "kids" line up by the ropes in front of the stands, just before practice ends for where to go!!!:D

    You're right. They haven't done the pro shop for the last couple of years. However, Tommy is almost a definite for opening day. If my memory serves me correctly...last year opening day was Tom, Randy, LoMo, and Vrabes.

    This is one little lady who is psyched about camp! (I guessed that it would be the opener on my last podcast but that was just by looking at past years.)

    Wooooohoooo!!!

    It's by position, but guys like Brady and some others usually sign every day.

    I know you will be in your normal position just to the right of the press tent. I like to sit midfield on the benches. I will take the 25 off of work and than I will go to as many others as I can. It is tough with work but I do libe in foxboro so that gives me a leg up. I can usually get to the night ones after work and of course the weekend ones.

    Re: Pats open camp 7/25 [confirmed]

    It might be that in some sports with a lot of regular season games, the playoffs are a relief? I mean we only get 16-19 games by our fave team a year.

    I know I don't want summer to go too fast, but seriously, I can't wait.

    Will any Pat's pre-season games be televised, btw?
