Cowboys Training camp experience yesterday

Well, we had a great time at the training camp yesterday, although they bumped the practice time back by an hour, so we had a lot of extra time to kill before they even opened the doors. 

There were more fans on the sidelines than I had expected (maybe 200 or so), but we were still RIGHT THERE on top of the action.  I met Roy Williams and got his autograph, which made the whole day worth it, since he is my current favorite player.  He was very gracious and he spent probably 30-45 minutes signing stuff for fans after practice.  My friend and I each managed to get about 6 autographs each. 

As for the practice itself, it is mainly a lot of drills and a little scrimmaging thrown in.  There was a pretty big fight at one point, but I'm not sure who was involved.  I think Julius Jones (running back) was one party, but I don't know who else.  I guess I was pretty surprised that those guys would fight with each other during practice since they are all millionaires, but what do I know?

Along the sidelines, there were some other familiar faces, like Jerry Jones, Red McCombs, and Barry Switzer.  We talked to Babe Laufenberg for awhile, and I also met Mickey Spagnola (both popular media guys in the Dallas area - Babe was a quarterback for the Cowboys a few years back). 

Overall, it was well worth it, and it made me feel like a kid again (in a good way).  I was super-tired afterwards, since you are standing around for several hours.  It was a great experience and I would love to go again next year!  I may post some of our photos soon.
