Countdown to Training Camp

The rookies report in 5 days, and the vets show up in a week.

And The Snark is going for the first time this year!  Looks like me and Chef Spouse will journey up to PA on Thursday, August 5 to attend camp on Friday, August 6, hopefully with Life-long Eagles Fan Mom and You-Two-Calm-Down-or-I'm-Turning-Off-the-TV Dad in tow. 

The advice hasn't been very forthcoming, though. My uncle advised us to get there early, make a day of it, and possibly hit the Martin Guitar museum during what he reports to be a long lunch break, and a former high school classmate gave me a restaurant recommendation that of course I can't find now.  And that's it.  C'mon y'all - this is my FIRST training camp & I want it to be awesome!  Help a sista out here!  I promise to write a great blog post after!

In Which the Eagles Get No Repect

Bleeding Green Nation has some bad news for us:  the national media is definitely NOT on the Eagles Roster Shakeup Bandwagon. 

My natural Eagles pessimism is taking over. I think it's entirely possible that we'll stink this year. 5-11 isn't beyond the pale. But the question is: are we in it to win NOW or for the long haul?

I hope Big Red knows what he's doing.
