The New England Patriots were back on the practice fields yesterday. While the weather was not as tremendous as it has been on other training camp opening days in the past, fans came in masses and the general atmosphere was not only good off the field but on it as well: Plays were celebrated by those who made them and their team mates during an energetic session.
To let you feel some of the energy and see some of the aforementioned plays, here are sights and sounds from the session.
