Ashburn,VA – Fans flocked to Ashburn for the start of another training camp on last Thursday of August.
Though expectations may be moderate, hope is particularly high among fans. “I think since they added onto the offensive line our chances are better than last year,” says Lorenzo Hill, a graduate student at the Virginia University of Lynchburg. He feels having McNabb here helps and that he will perform well as of he has something to prove.
The crowd today braved a fierce lightning storm and were happy to do so. When the team took the field a loud roar circumvented the area. The electricity was felt and the crowd brought it. James Howard had a tattoo he was proud to display, yet he wasn’t the only person to display his fandom on his sleeve.
Clearly the big story was Albert Haynesworth. Fans did not have a chance to see him practice with the team but they found ways to express their thoughts on his failed conditioning test.
Tomorrow morning the team will practicing again and the fans will be there. It is an investment, made by the players and the fans, that will last the entire season. If the teams does good or bad, the fans will always be there.
