The RainyDayMagazine crew went out to Gillette Stadium for the Patriots Training Camp recently.
We like going because we can get pretty close to the action. This visit was much more pleasant temperature-wise than when we were there a couple of years ago, . Bringing water along in the fancy-pants insulated water bottle (suggested by long-time RDM reader Angelika) definitely helped.
The practice field next to the main stadium, and on this day at least 10,000 fans sat in the stands. Lots of folks with Pats jersey and gear.
Yeah…we can get right in the middle of the plays with a 300mm zoom!
Now that the pre-season games and the silliness with Goodell are over and done with, we are looking forward to seeing the Pats play in tonight’s opener against the Steelers.Oh…about the fly-over with the banner from the Jets fans? Don’t know how it is in New York, but here in New England, we get to hang our banners.
Looking forward to hanging that SBW#5* banner soon!!! Go Pats!!!
