Training Camp Schedule!

Not huge news but the Dolphins have released some information about the upcoming Training Camp practices. The rookies are still at camp but will be taking a break in the next couple of weeks before everyone reports back to Dolphins HQ on August 1st. This will likely be a settling in day with a meeting or two, but the actual action doesn't start until the next day, Sunday the 2nd of August.

The Dolphins have announced that 21 practices will be open to fans including the first one on the 2nd. I urge any locals or travelers who will be attending any of these practices to text/e-mail/tweet/comment/messenger pigeon me so that we can collect as diverse a packet of information as possible, so that we can all share in the fun and those of us who are displaced can feel like we were there. I will of course give credit to everyone and you'll be showered with praise from the commenters. The practices are free, and the hotline to find out if they are still on/cancelled/postponed is (954) 452-7004.

  1. I will be at the Aug. 17th game! Can't wait to see Henne in action! See the future NOW.

  2. I hope to spend the day down there Sun Aug 2nd(x2)...
    FANG,you in??  I'm in PSL too..

  3. Why are MY last 3 post(@miscommunication)listed in my avatar,but NOT @ that particular comment section?? Is it me,or the site??

    THANKS for the dates TIN!!  ALL those dates are(fan friendly)??

  4. Actually,I'd like to give'em a wk or so to get into the groove of thing's b/4 attending.. Likely Thurs Aug 6,or Mon Aug 10(two-a-days)..

  5. Yes all the above listed dates are open to the public but are subject to change.

  6. Yea but I'm not sure on the date.  I went down there last year on the first weekend of practices, and they were taking things pretty slow.  This year I was going to down on the second weekend, but nothing is written in stone with me.

    How do we get hooked up, could we meet at a local place somewhere ?  It would be great to talk with someone local that knows the Dolphins really well.

    Name a place and time and I'll be there,  Bob Evans in St. Lucie west, Sunday Morning would be good !!

  7. I'll be there 9am, Aug.2 with the little brothers. Probably going to have my hands full looking after the rascals, but will definitely be looking at Turner (hate to say it, but from the video I've seen on the dolphins site he already appears more polished than B. london), Gcam, and Bess real close. 

    And of course, how the rooks look in the secondary.

  8. FANG,I play baseball on Sun Morns,and golf on Fridays..
    My best days would be Saturday's,or Monday's in the pm..

    I've heard that EXACT SAME opinion of BBonilla(asking wife/sister/daughter for a price break),and Piazza b/4!!

    Could have swore it was told to me in person,(but can't remember by whom).. So I'm thinkin that,
    1)either you posted those thoughts b/4,
    2)I already know you,or your son,or your son-in-law,or
    3)I know a friend of your's that used your story as his own...

    Could have sworn the story was told to me in person!!
    Trying to put 2 and 2 together..

    I know your older than me(50),cuz you said you had season tickets in"72",while I was a teen(13) that hopped a bus(unbenounced to my parents from 69-74),for FIN home games..

    IF you haven't posted those Bonilla/Piazza thoughts b/4,I know someone that you know,if not you yourself...
    Most of my friends are younger than me,(cuz when I came back to Fl in 99),it was hard to make friends my age that were into what I'm into(sports/personal stache).. I don't have many,IF ANY friends that are older than me,so MAYBE I'm friends w'your son or son-in-law.. How old is your son/son-in-law??
    I live off Airoso,near PSL Blvd.. You out west?? IF so,DUFFY's is about half-way b/t us,we'll have to have ONE Bourbon,ONE puff,and ONE beer,for sure b/4 TC,and maybe for some away games.. L8s!!
