This is about the never ending search for the best beer in the world. And that beer is apparently everywhere. Want me to try the beer you like or make? Great, tell me how to get it.

August 14-- Two-a-days end with punt competition between lines

The Skins finished their final two-a-day practice with a competition between the offensive linemen and defensive linemen, who could catch more punts off the Juggs gun.. The D-line went first and at least seven were caught.. Jon Jansen went first for the O-lineman, made a nice catch and then spiked the ball.. None of his teammates could catch one.. The loser had to run an extra sprint at the end of practice while the D-linemen joined the rest of the team who garbbed slices of watermelon in the training tent..
Phillip Daniels mocked the O-linemen saying all the defensive players were used to playing numerous positions as younger players while the O-lineman had always just been O-linemen..
Joe Gibbs laughed about the bet but in typical fashion was worried about someone getting hurt telling a story when he coached at Arkansas.. he said he told the offensive line to have a backwards race after one practice, one guy suffered a neck injury, the other a hamstring, “I thought I was going to get fired that day.”

Injuries at practice: RB Clinton Portis was held out (knee), T Chris Samuels was out (knee), TE Tyler Ecker (groin) was out again, G Todd Wade did some limited work (shoulder) but was held out of most of the team drills.. WR Antwaan Randle-El (quad) did individual drills but was held out of team work, DT Anthony Montgomery (knee) was also limited and held out of team work.. WR Cory Bradford suffered a hamstring injury in practice and did not return..
WR Brandon Lloyd returned to practice (shin splints) and had one of the nicer moves after a short catch splitting two defenders receiving oohs from his teammates..

CB Fred Smoot got ribbed by his teammates after dropped a sure fire interception in the end zone during 9-9 drills..

Overheard: Special teams coach Danny Smith to rookie LB Dallas Sartz: “You need so damn much work, get over here.”

The offense ran a couple of no huddle plays during 11-11 drills catching the defense off guard..

One night practice tomorrow..

OK men..
