Deke: The hay is in the barn at Saints camp
The Cajun Cannon made it here, and now, as they say, "the hay is in the barn." We are all up here in beautiful West Virginia and tomorrow we will hear from Mickey and Sean.
T-Bob and K-Dog and I walked over to Wal-Mart and made a few purchases. Later we rode with Jim and Hokie to check out where we'll be working at the Greenbrier. Man, the Greenbrier is one beautiful place. A nice cool front has set in and the team is here now. Folks in Lewisburg lined the streets to see the Black and Gold ride through town.
There were Black and Gold balloons, homemade signs and smiles on the faces of the locals. You see not only are people excited about having an NFL team here for the next three weeks, but the area should receive a boost in the local economy.
Jim Henderson and I stopped into an Irish pub on main street and it truly felt like home. There was some good New Orleans music playing in the background, and the pub had a section on the wall that featured a Fats Domino poster! I saw a Jazz Fest poster and Mardi Gras items as well.
These folks know who we are, and I truly feel like they are glad to have us all here. Now the batteries are fresh and in our recorders, cameras are charged and ready to go and we got plenty of pen and paper.
Another training camp is here and now it's time to bring you the meat and potatoes each day. Remember, you don't have to wait all the way till 4pm to get the latest on the Black and Gold. Krisitan and T-Bob will broadcast live up here everyday from 6am-9am on 3WL. Those two have a good plan and a lot of good things to give you each day. Check them out!
Then of course I'll be along with our resident pros Hokie and Bobby each day on Sports Talk. We will give you the 411 on the Saints, but we also we plan on adding a little more fun flavor to the mix this year.
Hope all is well back home. Until tomorrow - Who Dat!
