Hey guys this will be my first trip to Latrobe. Can anyone give me some advice on what to take along with me, other than the obvious like camera and autograph gear.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. We took folding chairs but ended up hauling them back to the car after a short time. Take an umbrella..you could always leave it in the car if it isn't threatening rain.

Yeah instead of chairs last summer we brought a blanket to sit on because we sat on the autograph hill...kind of hard to sit on chairs up there

They do have the building where the student union is open for bathrooms and they have the book store open if you need to get the baby out of the heat.

I hope a lockout doesn't do to the NFL what it did to baseball. The MLB has never truely recovered in my eyes.

A cooler with wheels on it, even a small one, is definitely ideal. Grab yourself a bunch of bottles of water and ice because unless you get a fluke day, it's always hot as blazes there. There are some trees for shade on either side but those spots fill up quickly. You might just drop your stuff off at a shady spot and then walk around and do your thing.

I noticed last year at camp that the players didn't like signing Terrible towels. I think they are difficult to write on. :imho:

Around 1:50. Sounds like it is just because they're hard to sign.

Also listen to 2:35 :rofl:

2 years ago, Hines Ward told a few of us, that Terrible Towels are the most difficult thing to sign plus they are difficult to read..........

i got my very first terrible towel signed back in the 90's by a few steelers that came to my high school (i was in like 6th grade at the time) to play some of our staff in basketball for charity...i know orpheus roye and kevin henry signed it, but i can't remember the others, and i sure as hell can't read the signatures to tell, lol

Yeah the towels are great to wave while you're there but they are difficult to sign for the players. Ive never had a player refuse to sign one because most of them know how much our towels mean to us fans but overall Im sure they enjoy signing jersey's, pictures, helmets, banners, etc. a lot more.
