With an End to the NFL Lockout, Redskins Announce Preseason Schedule
Training camp season this year, following a contentious labor dispute, is like “Thanksgiving and Christmas” rolled into one
That, of course, is ridiculous. But it wouldn’t be a stretch to say many Washingtonians treat the opening of Redskins’ training camp as a special day on the calendar.
In this summer of the lockout, Thursday is that day for Redskins fans. You can count on a constant stream of Burgundy and Gold information wherever you turn. Today the Redskins released their official training camp schedule. Open-to-the-public practices start in earnest Saturday morning at Redskins Park in Ashburn. Get there early. These things tend to fill up quickly.
Lucky training camp attendees might even get a glimpse of the team’s newest signings, full of hope and promise, as they arrive at Redskins Park. That will be a comforting memory when coach Mike Shanahan and crew are back in the NFC East cellar this fall. See, training camp really is an occasion to celebrate.
