Morning Commute: Redskins Training Camp Is Here

Everything you need to know about D.C. Sports in one place.    

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, so since there have already been so many words written about the start of Redskins training camp, I'll just post this 1977 SI Vault picture (via Mister Irrelevant).

If that doesn't get you ready for football, I don't know what does.

Today's must-reads from around the SB Nation network:

  • SB Nation D.C. contributor Brian Murphy gives us 10 semi-bold Redskins predictions on his blog Homer McFanboy. I like number one for sure.
  • Bullets Forever has some quick thoughts on the Wizards' decision to re-sign Josh Howard.
  • Federal Baseball discusses why this year's trade deadline will determine GM Mike Rizzo's vision for the franchise going forward.
  • Japers Rink ranks the Capitals players on a five-tool scale, like they have in baseball.
  • Maryland football picked up a recruit from Florida, writes Testudo Times.
On tap at SB Nation D.C.: Need help figuring out what the cliche quotes coming out of Redskins Park mean? Jake Whitacre has this handy translator. Also, Chris Needham writes about the Nationals' surplus (or lack thereof) of pitching heading into the home stretch of the season.

Finally, I will be down at Redskins Park today for the first day of training camp, so check back here for that coverage.
