I very much enjoyed the practice day and a big thanks to Paul Stewart for making it happen (he even managed to have good weather). Highlights included:
•LaGarrette Blount and Gerald McCoy spending significant time chatting to club members during the practice session.
•The willingness of all the players (especially the “star” players) to spend time with us after practice to sign autographs etc.
•Mark Dominik and Brian Ford chatting to us.
•Probably the enduring highlight was the response of Donald Penn by throwing the ball to us after catching the TD pass following our “We want Donald” chants.
Other key highlights of the weekend:
•Meal on Saturday night- Chance to put faces to the names I see on the Forum.
•Touch Football Game- I would like to thank the Bears Fan club for the light hearted way the approached the event.
•Probably the saddest part of the weekend was seeing how poor mobility Jimmie Giles now has.
