Training Camp Commute - 07/30/14
The Tennessee Titans are off today. No practice. No meetings. No putting on the pads. It's their first break since training camp kicked off last week. I imagine the players are enjoying their time away from "barking" coaches. Ha!
This time of year, I'm always reminded of how lucky we are in the FOX 17 Sports Department. When it comes to covering training camp, we have it so good! True story. If we had to, we could WALK to Saint Thomas Sports Park from our station.
Many of my friends who work in television have to drive to other cities to report on their NFL teams. My buddies at WUSA in Washington, D.C. go all the way to Richmond, Virginia for Redskins training camp. People I know in the Dallas market travel all the way to Oxnard, California to cover the Cowboys!
Meanwhile back in Nashville, as you'll see in the video below, it's a short commute for Dan Phillips, Dave Foster, and me. Literally - if we left for practice five minutes before it started, we'd be early.
