DeMarcus Ware really hooked up some fans

After meeting Jerry Jones and Wade Phillips at Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, I came across All-Pro defensive lineman DeMarcus Ware. Ware was signing autographs for a couple of Cowboy fans outside of the team’s base hotel.  Ware shook hands with the guys and then proceeded to sign multiple photos of himself and also a Cowboys’ helmet. For a top NFL player, Ware was extremely accommodating to these fans, providing them with whatever they wanted him to sign.

Meeting Wade Phillips at Cowboys Camp in Oxnard

Just a few minutes after morning practice concluded, Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips walked right in front of me, as I was hanging out in the parking lot of the Marriott Residence Inn.  I asked Phillips if I could pose for a photo with him. He agreed in a very soft spoken manner.  We took the photo and I wished him good luck for the upcoming season.  Wade responded by saying “thank you” and then he began walking slowly to his next destination. 

Meeting Jerry Jones at Cowboys Camp in Oxnard

I headed up to Oxnard to take in a day at Cowboys’ training camp. Between the morning and afternoon practice sessions, I was hanging out in the parking lot in front of the Marriott Residence Inn. After a few minutes, I noticed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones standing outside of a Lincoln Navigator, speaking to someone within the vehicle.   After the conversation ended, I asked Mr. Jones if I could pose for a photo with him. I figured this would be no problem because of Jones’ generally affable and gregarious nature around fans.

A Brett Favre sighting in Downtown LA

I was sitting in the lobby of the JW Marriott/Ritz-Carlton at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles.  The hotel is located immediately adjacent to the Nokia Theater, where the ESPY Awards were taking place later that night. Within a few minute span, both Brett Favre and Cowboys coach Wade Phillips walked about 15 feet in front of me. They were not together I should point out. 

The only bit of Favre news I can pass along is that he appeared to be walking without any type of limp. He was definitely moving a whole lot better than after the loss in the NFC Title Game.  

Pierre Thomas is the Saints best back & a true fan favorite

New Orleans Saints' running back Pierre Thomas was one of the most important contributors to his team's Super Bowl championship season. Even though fellow RB Reggie Bush receives much of the attention, Thomas's worth absolutely supersedes that of the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Adrian Peterson exhibiting Purple Pride on and off the field

Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson is as talented as any football player on the planet. His combination of size, speed and toughness has put him on pace to be one of the greatest of all-time.

The seventh pick in the 2007 NFL Draft has rushed for nearly 4,500 yards and 40 TD's, during his first three NFL seasons.  Last season, Peterson's rushing totals declined with the arrival of Brett Favre, but he set a career high in pass receptions, with 43.

Vikings wine and dine Tomlinson at Minneapolis's finest restaurant

Wednesday night, future Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson arrived in Minneapolis to meet with Minnesota Vikings officials.  After spending his first nine seasons with the San Diego Chargers, the free agent has hit the open market for the first time in his career.

LT was released in February following the least productive season of his career. The NFL's eighth all-time leading rusher has certainly lost a step, but that does not mean that other teams are not interested in Tomlinson as a backup.
