Training Camp happens to be one of my favorite places to be and is one of the highlights of my summer.... (one of the perks of my job is that I can go every day!) It also happens to be where I met my favorite player, Tedy Bruschi in person for the first time.... and OMG... look where that has led!
Up through the 2002 season, training camp was held at Bryant College in Smithfield, Rhode Island. Beginning in 2003, camp has moved to Gillette Stadium with the players staying at a nearby hotel. (Personally, I loved it being Bryant because it was close to home, it wasn't too crowded (at least until they won the SuperBowl), and I had a nice spot scoped out to watch my favorite players practice. The best part about Bryant was the ability to walk all around the field.
Camp is a great place to see the Patriots players and coaches up close. It gives you a sneak peek at the rookies and new Pats. It's also the Hot Spot for getting autographs and pictures. Be sure to check out my awesome photo galleries and annual training camp reports!
