Playing 60

Posted by Darren Urban on May 6, 2010 – 2:38 pm

I spent the morning out at University of Phoenix Stadium, where the NFL’s “Play 60” campaign — the one where the league tries to encourage kids to get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day — was culminating locally with a special event out on one of the lawns around the stadium. Twelve local schools participated in the “Play 60” challenge and the top 50 students from each school got to attend Thursday’s fun, which included appearances by a handful of Cards: Stevie Baggs (pretending to take on a “ballcarrier” below), Ben Graham, Ryan Kees, Reagan Maui’a, Dean Muhtadi and Ed Gant (below both expressing surprise after a “made” field goal). Cardinals cheerleaders conducted a clinic, local “Biggest Loser” contestants Sione and Filipe Fa and ex-Cards Robert Tate and MarTay Jenkins took part, and of course, Big Red was there too.

    Thats heart warming Darren, I realy hope Stevie Baggs makes the team this year so he can show how well he can preform in the NFL with the best UNDERDOG team in the NFL…


    Quick question,… how many players are alowed to be on the practice squad?

    Eight players are allowed on the practice squad. And Baggs, despite coming out of college in 2004, would be eligible.

    I must say, it always give me a smile seeing the players giving there time to the local kids. It means the world to them, and who knows it may inspire future players in the NFL.

    Russell to San Fran I think would be welcomed by the Cards. I haven’t heard anything about McKenzie.
