    2:55 is when it is supposed to start but the players have started coming out onto the field around 2:30 the past two days, today they practiced until 5:30, yesterday a few minutes past 5:00. I've arrived at 2:00 the past two days and had my pick to view from pretty much anywhere, was in the bleachers for about a half hour before the heat was too much for me so I went and sat in a grassy area on top of the hill in the shade. There are concession stands throughout the campus with food and water for sale. Some people bring beach towels or chairs to sit on the grass. Have fun!

    If it rains they most likely end practice if it is really bad, Friday got cut short because of rain. I've only been there once with a light sprinkle that ended before the players came out to start so I don't know for sure how bad it has to be to cancel practice.

    If you're willing to get there early and stay late, you should be able to get plenty of autographs. Everyone who wants them crowds the area around where the players come out. When HTG and I go, we don't go anywhere near there because everyone runs to get a spot and they will run you over if you aren't paying attention.

    Do they end it because of rain, or lightning? If they end it because of rain only, that's kinda weak.

    Take some SU t-shirts!!! It would be great to get the players to wear them!!...I will shoot off a text to your choice of Emmanuel Sanders... Baron Batch...Lawrence Timmons or Antonio Brown (or all of them) if you verify that you are taking them

    Yeah I meant lightning and/or storms, but like I said I haven't been there when when it has rained a lot.

    Not sure what the players do if it gets cancelled, they are just at a college campus so not sure if they would practice in the gym or maybe they would just get the day off.

    Re: Steelers TC - Tuesday

    Well really enjoyed TC today despite the heavy rain there @ beginning before the players came out but it tapered off for awhile. I will post a few pics 2morrow when I get home. Really enjoyed watching baron batch made a couple good catches out of backfield also enjoyed his hustle the whole practice. Is sweed wearing 80 this yr I know he used to wear 14 but according the roster they handed out he was wearing 80 if so he made a couple good catches. Also number 35 not listed looked real good to me playing safety but that number not listed. And as usual heath didn't miss 1 pass all practice. TC is a must if never been here I really enjoyed it.

    To my fans and Steeler nation: No words can express how much you mean to me. Today is what you mean to me. Thanks for all the love and support through the OTAs, mini camps, training camps, injuries, Super Bowls and the lockout, just through it all. You guys have given me the best years of my life and I will never forget that. Never.

    Yeah Sweed is now wearing #80. #35 on defense is Brett Greenwood from Iowa. The roster on the Steelers official site is more up to date than what they hand out at camp. http://www.steelers.com/team/roster.html
