Faces In The Crowd At Seahawks Training Camp [PHOTOS]
Earlier this week, I traveled to the VMAC in Renton, where the Seattle Seahawks training facility is to watch training camp.
Having never attended before, it was definitely an assault to the senses to see so many Seahawks greats running right by me to head onto the practice field.
As the team was going through its drills, there was a lot of hurry-up-and-wait as I anticipated my opportunity to get to interview some of the players. As I walked around the campus, I couldn't help but recognize a few non-players. I started humming the tune from an old Sesame Street song called "The People In Your Neighborhood" and couldn't help be be reminded of the old Sports Illustrated feature "Faces In The Crowd."
Here now are some of the folks I brushed alongside.
(Note: I did not get a picture of what was probably the wealthiest person on the field that day -- which is saying something considering the number of multimillionaires out there -- but it's probably a good thing. Had I gotten close enough to get a picture of Starbucks CEO and former Seattle SuperSonics team owner Howard Schultz, I probably would have put the camera down and slugged him!)
