Well, it's been a slower day so far, as Dan talked about in his earlier blog, but I have been able to get started on my feature on offensive guards which will be posted on the site tomorrow. I was wandering around the lobby when I saw Redskins Assistant Head Coach - Offense, Joe Bugel, a legendary offensive line coach. I was able to speak to him for a while and he was articulate and generous with his time. No luck so far on the player front. An offensive lineman finally showed up, Notre Dame OT Ryan Harris and while he was very well-spoken and polite in his presser, he isn't one of the guys I'm looking to talk to. One thing Harris did touch on, however, is the process the players went through today. According to Harris, the players woke up at 5 a.m., were given a drug test and then transported here for medical exams. Harris commented that every team has a right to have their doctors look at you and every team will have their doctors look at you, saying they will x-ray you for every injury you've ever had.
Oh and on another note, the tape recorder is up and working again. Perhaps karma for fixing Dan's mouse problem?
I'm off again, hopefully we get some guards in here soon.
