Ok, I went to the Dave & Buster’s event on Thursday. Lot of fun. Got to see several people that I’d not seen during the offseason. Of course the players were there. Had a chat with Coach Onalfo and with Robb Heineman. From what I could tell the players were, as always, very approachable. As was the staff. Many fans got their new jerseys. We heard Jimmy introduce the team and then Peter Vermes and Curt Onalfo did some talking.
Now, to what the title was referring to. Afterwards my brother and I went over to CAB and checked out the new Cauldron. The section where the collective supporters groups will be. Previously this was a grass section that was, after a few minutes, pretty darn uncomfortable to stand on. The section is now filled with concrete and has metal bleachers with green backs on them. The Cauldron is very very close to where the goalkeeper will be. There’s a point where the section is only about 5 yards from the end line.
Anyway here is some video of the Cauldron
And here is some video of CAB from the top of the bleachers behind the Cauldron
I do have some still pictures of the Cauldron, which I added to my flickr photos here, along with Wednesday’s practice photos.
Also today I was out at practice and here is some more upclose video of field turf.
