The St. Louis Rams wrapped up their first day of training camp minutes ago. It was hot. It rained for a little bit before things got started, but spirits were high and fans were glad to see something like football again. Our Twitter list was bumping with updates from folks at camp, so here are a few highlights from our citizen journos.
Fans turned out in droves

Jake Long was doing the sand drills too, which is good to hear.
