Some people count down the days until the first regular season game, some count down the days until the first preseason game, but I count down the days until the first San Diego Chargers Training Camp practice that is open to the public.
I've been to Chargers Park as a member of the media, and I'll probably do it again at this point, but I truly enjoy sitting at the top of the bleachers and being able to see each position group go through their drills. Nothing excites me more about the upcoming season. Not the 24/7 newscycle starting back up, not the preseason games, and not even all of the Week 1 Sunday games that we'll have to sit through before we get to watch the Chargers play a meaningful game.
I live for two dates. The first open training camp practice and the first Chargers game, and the first one isn't too far away....
