Busy Bees

It was another busy day in WNT training camp. First, all 26 players went to the doctor’s office this morning to get blood drawn for standard blood work. No stone is unturned in preparing these players for competition! Then, the whole team came to The Home Depot Center at Noon for lunch before jumping into one of the team’s favorite days of the year – Photo Day! Ok, so maybe posing for tons of photos isn’t everyone’s idea of a fun afternoon, but the players definitely got into it as the WNT does it at a bit higher level than your standard 5th grade school photo day. The players did three different set-ups with three different backdrops, posing in casual clothes (also known as “lifestyle shots”), sitting for standard head and shoulder shots (also know as “mug shots”), and then headed to the stadium pitch to stand for full length portraits in their white, long-sleeve game jerseys (those white long sleeves are sweet-looking if we do say so ourselves). Special thanks to official team photog John Todd and his assistant Don for powering out the photo shoot (those guys are good), and to all the players and coaches for their patience posing for a plethora of pics (sometimes, we just gotta bust out the alliteration in the WNT Blog). Tomorrow, most of the team has the day off, but about a dozen players will train in the morning as this WNT training camps nears its end…
