NFL training camps open before the month ends.
I was sent on a pigskin chase already. Yeah, I’m ready.
As deadlines have it, my September story for Central New York the Good Life Magazine is in the Double-D category. Due and Done.
My story will touch on Central New York football fever, Fridays through Sundays.
One of my stops was at The Beginning II in East Syracuse. My talk with owner Mike Krajacic revealed how he has turned from a Rex Ryan hater to a fan of the new Buffalo Bills coach. No, that’s not what my story will cover. But it was a cool part of our conversation and certainly is worth mentioning about the Buffalo Bills bar from this New York Jets fan.
Another stop was the complex at Christian Brothers Academy, where I talked with first-year coach Casey Brown in the locker room about how his mother still attends games where he grew up in North Syracuse. The story isn’t about that, either, but that type of passion for the sport makes me look forward to the season even more, too.
Too early or just right to be thinking about football? What’s your favorite football team, and why? Do you see young people working out for fall sports already in your neighborhood, and if so, what are they doing?
