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 8-- "Stephon Who?"

A large crowd attended the final open practice of training camp, it was fan appreciation night and Joe Gibbs addressed the crowd.. The timing of the practice (7PM) couldn’t have worked out better with unbearable heat in the afternoon, but calmer conditions in the evening..

DT Vaka Manapuna was carted off the field and ultimately left the building in crutches after suffering a quad injury..

Other injuries: RB Clinton Portis (knee) sat out of practice but did more cardio and stretch work then in previous sessions.. He is extremely unlikely to play against Tennessee.. TE Tyler Ecker (groin) was held out.. T Chris Samuels (knee) also missed practice..

FB Mike Sellars (knee) was in pads and participated in practice, he had missed the last couple of sessions.. RB Ladell Betts also appears healthy after suffering a jammed neck earlier this week..

When one of the TV production aides returned from the field she was holding a long microphone with a shaggy gray wind screen.. This according to larry Michael was the original wig used by Clinton Portis when he started doing characters a couple of seasons back.. I know that has nothing to do with anything, but, well, it’s camp and it’s hot and it seemed interesting at the time..

When I asked Renaldo Wynn about how undrafted rookie Stephon Heyer was doing in practice, he said, “Who?” Asked if I should be worried that he doesn’t know the starting LT on the team by name, Wynn laughed and said it’s not unusual for vets to not know all of their teammates this time of year, especially the new ones, “my line is, what’s up dog?” Wynn did say he is not concerned with Heyer because he believes the coaches wouldn’t put the guy in if they didn’t think he could do it.. Obviously the spotlight in on the left side of the O-line in the early part of the game this weekend..

The team was practicing some tip drills in the end zone for potential “Hail Mary” attempts..

OK men..
