So I went today. Totally bummed they were not in pads but whatever. A few interesting observations:
- Tom Brady was running with the squib team. You read that correctly. They were doing special team drills and he was out there on the kick off team. I don't know if it was just to get some running in but I turned to my friend and was like "uh, why is Tom Brady out there?" Then they ran it again and he was like "oh shizzle he is!" He didn't really say shizzle.
- Shawn Crable is a freaking MONSTER. He looked, to me, like the biggest person on that field. Wow.
-Kevin O'Connell ran the second team. Didn't see Walter on the field once.
Anyway, here are a ton of pictures from today at the link and a few of my favs here:
Kraft buying the team saved them from moving to St. Louis. The two hats in the Patriots HOF were given to Kraft as a gift by the former owner to show him exactly what he saved... or something like that. They have a little write up in there.
