Training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles is underway at Lehigh University, with the first practices featuring the team in pads taking place this weekend. Philadelphians love their Eagles team and will support them just the same whether they train in South Philadelphia or 70 miles away in Bethlehem. Eagles training camp gives fans the opportunity to see players up close without the cost of an $80 ticket. It's the perfect summer outing for the family that loves football, from the walkway leading to camp that features legendary Eagles throughout the team's history to the youth programs taking place near the Birds' practice field. Young, old, brash, bold--they were all at camp to support their team and get excited about the upcoming campaign. With six weeks to go until the Eagles' season opener against the Browns in Cleveland, Lehigh provides the perfect buildup for what's to come. A preview of the problems and the potential possessed by the team. A dynasty? We'll see. But whatever happens in the 2012 season for the Philadelphia Eagles, it all started with this team and these fans at Lehigh.
