Summer Means the Return of Baseball and Joe Gibbs --- Penn Camera Specials
By Jeff Snyder

The hot & hazy days of summer are upon us here in the DC area. However, there is a bright light shining upon us. The word is out that we'll have MLB Baseball back in DC next summer! I grew up with the Washington Senators, and have sorely missed having a team to call our own for the past 20+ years. Those guys 50 miles up the road are fun to watch, but it's just not the same. At the other end of our rainbow is our beloved Redskins, and with Coach Joe Gibbs back at the helm, the city is shaking with excitement. Training camp starts this week. Hail to the Redskins, Hail Victory ... (OK, OK, I'm getting way too pumped up before the season even begins)
