Friday, August 22: Travel Day

The team is preparing to set out for Carolina today. No trains this time — it’s back to the plane for players and staff this trip, and the team equipment set out to travel by truck yesterday.

Packing and shipping for an away game are the kinds of things that lead to the equipment staff working 21 hour days. Even after the team equipment is gone, individual equipment has to be prepared, packed, and brought to the plane.

Repainted helmets ready for transport.

  1. This story makes you appreciate everybody involved in making away games “happen”…

  2. This is actually very cool, thanks for the pics. I had always imagined that it must take an army to get the team ready for away games.

  3. Wow. I thought it was just like when we went to away games when I played in High School. Throw mofos on a bus and get er dun. Good blog. Thanks for the inside insite in the innerness.

  4. Your blog gives us a larger meaning of the word “team” !

  5. Again, a great post. I love seeing behind the scenes.

    Do the players pack the bags themselves? Are they just like us?? (Taken from the US Weekly where they show celebrities doing normal things).

  6. Where do I sign up for the job? Do the people involved get to attend the game? Meet the players?

  7. Thanks for all the behind the scenes stuff, it’s really cool would like to see a lot more pictures if possible. Thanks for all your hard work

  8. Any way you can talk to Cooley about his new helmet? Does it make him go faster? Or is that shape on the back supposed to provide better support for the back of the head? Its kind of goofy looking, but I suppose if it gets the job done…

  9. hey matt…this is interesting stuff…even us non-redskin fans can now enjoy something about the team…keep it up and i might actually have to buy a ticket to a game some day…
