    I have so much to say, where should I begin. My day started at 5 a.m. My father and me hit the road at 5:40. We stoped to get something to eat real quick then we hit the freeway. We got to Training camp about 7:20, parked, then my dad painted my face have blue, half silver, after her was done, we started walking towards camp, and people were all ready looking at me and looking at my sign, trying to see what it said. 8:02 the doors open to camp and people rushed in, some of the training camp workers liked the painting on my face, and my sign, and I should get some blue hair. After that, started walking towards the field but it wasn’t open yet, so went to the dallas cowboys pro shop, and bought a mini retro helmet, after that the field gates open and people were going in.

    I had a lot of people still looking at me and looking at the sign, then a man looked at my sign and started talking about the forums, and brought up cowboyszone ( I don’t remember his name, if hes reading this speak up!) and started talking about cowboys-forum and talking about theblueandsilver.com, then people started turning around and were listing. But after awhile the players started coming out, then i herd someone call my name, and guess who it was?!??! The great Calicowboy himself! We talked for a few mins, then he headed to the vip/ field area. After awhile more players came out then a man started taking pictures of me and my sign, took a lot, and then called me over got my name, age, and what city I lived in, and where I learn how to make the sign. And told me the pictures he took of me have a chance of being on dallasnews.com so check the site. So I was pretty happy by then.

    Then more players started to come out, and everyone was pretty much waiting for TO, then finally he comes out! Everyone goes crazy, I start putting my sign high up in the air. Then the cowboys start practicing!

    The offense worked mostly on the 2nd field, well the defense worked on the first field, they were working on a lot of running drills, footwork, blocking, catching. I had a chance to watch a coach work with the defense linemen. A lot of pushing/blocking drills from what I saw.

    After that I see azcowboy walking around, so I got introduce myself and tell him who I am and so on, then we go meet up with the other guys SoCal,SoCalJr,Grizz, start talking to them for awhile, then practice was almost over so I though I would go stand by the gate where all the players exit out of, then pratice is over, players are coming, then I throw my sign up in the air, what ever player I saw I swiched it to that players side of the sign, then roy came over signed some stuff, then I had my sign high up in the air and he grabbed it, then started laughing, AND SIGNED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STAR! (COWBOYS-FORUM YOU GOING TO LIKE THIS!!!!) ON THE BOTTEM I WROTE OUT COWBOYS-FORUM.COM IN HUGE LETTERS, SO IM 100% SURE HE READ THE WEBSITE URL! After that I was pretty happy but till then till people starting pushing me, then I got mad and threw a few elbows when they tried to pushed, then they learned now to mess with the great LARRYALLEN73 haha just playing, then after that I stuck around awhile, talked to a few of the guys, then got some news that i might be able to score VIP! I got so happy when I herd that!

    After, My dad and me got some grub, then some police offiercers came up to me, and started asking questions about camp and how the boys were looking and where it was located at. Then I catch a flick with my dad, go back to training camp, re-paint my face again, and did a different pattern, then was walking around, then some players came out, and look who it was, Roy W, he started signing stuff life crazy, he had to sign about 50 things, I just started at one point and kept working him self down the row of people, till he got to me, I gave him a wallpaper of mine, and I whanted him to sign it but then he said “ This for me? I can have it? I was like yea its for you.. then he gave it to a worker and said hang on to this for me, then I got bummed cause I whanted him to sign it, but then he gave me his gloves, SO I SCORED! Then I walked down some more and waited till he came past me and gave him my mini helment and asked if he likes when people give him artwork, and he said “ ya, do you have anymore? And I told him I have more but not on me, and he said “are you coming back any time soon? And I said yea in a week then he said “bring some more, make doubles, and I sign them for you. Then was all happy. Then I got the news I GOT VIP! (thanks marcus! U da man!)WOOT WOOT! I was happy, so got to walk on the field for about 6 secs, that was cool, then started talking to marcus (member of cowboys-forum, and cowboyszone, and theblueandsliver.com) we talked about cowboys, and stuff… then I found out that VIP gets free soda so I was down for that, so I grabbed my self a soda! Then im chilling there, then this man comes up to me and says do you want to be on dallascowboys.com? I was like heck yeaaa.. said we are going to take a picture of you and some other people and looks like you’re a good fan then pointed to my face and sign, then we took that picture with some other people, then he took a picture of just me, and he said it will be on dallascowboys.com soon, so be on the look out for it! So I was like YEAAAAAA! Then I see azcowboy and tell him all the good news about everything, Then we started talking about the cowboys, and life and stuff, and then all this lame people kept getting in our shots, and was really pissing us off.. ahha we both agree that we need a new QB, current ones aren’t cutting it. Then pratice was just about over, players were signing like crazy, I got Stephen brown, Rocky boinman, Cory procter, Patrick crayton, Keylon kincade, Marcus spears ( nice guy, leg is feeling good, should be back in a couple weeks) Demarcus ware ( he just finshed signing, and then started walking towards the exit when I just reached out and and screamed his name and said sign my helmet please… then he signed then took off.. what swell guy he is) then took a couple pictures with the players.. that was pretty cool. Well I should be back in training next week.. 1 last time.. should be a lot of fun.

    Just want to give a special thanks to calicowboy, thanks for taking pictures of me, and helping me out at TC! Thanks to marcus (XXB13) for the hookup!
