Football season will soon be here! I know for a lot of folks, it can't get here soon enough. Especially around here. The speculation about the new team that the Jaguars are putting together from top to bottom is rampant. And hopes are high that this may be a turning point for the team. It's got to be better than last year, that's for sure.
The Jags opened their training camp on Friday, and it's open to the public for the next week. I was able to get down there for the activity on the field on Friday and Saturday. And it was HOT! Late July in Florida, what would you expect? I can't imagine what those guys must be feeling as they get put through their paces. You can see the sweat pouring off them. Heck, it was pouring off me being out there in that sun.
I have to be honest. I saw some really promising play out there. I also saw some disappointing things that I sure hope get corrected quickly. I think the team has great possibilities. It's really early to make any kind of judgments. But I think this may perfectly sum it up.....
And now for the really good news. Friday I found out that my credentials to shoot the Jags home games have come through. So, I'll be there on the sidelines at Everbank Stadium for all the action. I am so excited and can't wait. This is one I've waited for and dreamed of for quite a while. Stay tuned as I'm sure I'll be posting lots of pix here throughout the season.
