A handful of Lions players (and one particular coach ...) wasted no time before jumping on their iPhones or laptops to "tweet" about the first official day of training camp.
The consensus? Every one seemed pretty appreciative of the fan turnout on Saturday.
Below is a collection of the team's Twitter activity ...
(Editor's Note: Yeah, we checked Ndamukong Suh's Twitter page ... no dice.)
Best turnout ever by season ticketholders. Good first day of practice - off and running.
Interview w/ media: "Was a great day to practice. We were blessed with a 75 degree day w/ overcast. When you’re starting off, that’s good."
