2015 Training Camp — Day 3
Saturday morning was the third day of 2015 Packers Training Camp, and the first day in full pads (the latest CBA calls for no pads the first two practices of the year). Above, Packers fans wait in the early morning sunlight for the 8:20 a.m. start of activities.
LB Clay Matthews and some of his teammates do some pre-practice stretching.
The first of two “what are these folks thinking?!” photos. This kid received the boos of the crowd as he walked the length of the practice field stands.
And then there’s these folks. So, you can show up in Green Bay for the Packers’ camp, but can’t drive a few hours to each of the respective neighboring states where their teams practice? And the one guy is raising his daughter as a Vikings fan... which should be prosecutable as a form of child abuse.
Such a nice (but warm) day for football in Northern Wisconsin.
