Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp
Last week I took my annual visit to Lehigh University to check out Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp which runs through August 14. This year I brought along my uncle, Hank, and his life-long friend, Roy, who are owners in our fantasy football league. I tied our trip to training camp and a much deserved lunch at P.J. Whelihan’s, as their reward for helping me with a furniture move.
The food and atmosphere at P.J.’s was as good as advertised. Cold beer, juicy burgers and more TV’s than you can count, helped bide our time till the afternoon training camp session started. The team has switched practice programs this summer to include shorts and pads in their morning sessions; and full pads and contact in the afternoon session during the heat of the day. I assume this will help with those late summer games with 4 o’clock start times.
