I have a confession to make: I've never been to the St. Louis Rams' training camp, and I don't think I'll ever be able to bring myself to make the trip. There's just something about spending more time than I have to outside in a Midwestern August that roots me even more deeply to my chair than usual. That's why I'm grateful for Turf Show Times, which as always has some great photos and reports from the Rams' scrimmage.â†µ
Relevant links: A scouting report from Brick Top, who liked Billy Bajema and loved watching Jerious Norwood and Cadillac Williams, although I'm concerned about his note that he didn't see Norwood's all-important speed; some photos from a friend and tweeter of the site; and another scouting report and running commentary from RamsBuck, who notes that Austin Pettis didn't have a great day but Mike Sims-Walker looked solid. (Long term I'd just as soon see that go the other way around...)â†µ
It was 100 degrees at the scrimmage Sunday, and thanks to the magic of the internet you and I didn't have to fall victim to heat stroke. It's reason enough to thank Tim Berners-Lee a little extra on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the World Wide Web.
