Camp from afar, Day 1

on
BST PR man Kimber Auerbach did up a full camp recap, including lines, which reveals an interesting addition: vet centerman Marc Cavosie. I’m guessing tryout, but I’ve got an e-mail in to check.

Returning captain

on
It’s official: Kevin Colley is conducting the ceremonial faceoff Oct. 12 against Steve Stirling and the Admirals. Colley will be around for camp, too, which should be neat. I’m a little concerned about the hate for the WBS thirds. (Not really. But really.) Don’t make me go all manifesto on you. (‘Cause I’m on vacation.) […] [Read More]
