Default Training Camp Trickery

Ben didn't have us fooled for a minute. This past Wednesday I was at training camp. We were hanging out where the players come down and saw an extra tall Charlie Batch running down the ramp. Turns out Charlie and Ben had swapped jerseys (I'm guessing so Ben could avoid the autograph frenzy...) You can see Charlie coming down behind Ben in his jersey...

Bwa ha ha!

On Tuesday when we were there, he came down the walkway wearing his usual #7 with his helmet off and was smiling at everyone as he passed. When practice was over, he didn't come back up the walkway and instead went over to the VIP tent with Hines, Peezy and a few others. Sneaky little devils they are!
