Monday observations from Arizona Cardinals training camp

Here are my observations from Arizona Cardinals practice on Monday, Aug. 4:

FRANK CALIENDO

Here is one guy I never expected to see at Cards practice. His son is interested in being a kicker. Jay Feely was cool enough to spend a few minutes with Frank's son while he was warming up and kicking into the net. Later in practice, Arizona was running the 2-minute drill and Jay missed two field goal attempts.

DOUG FRANZ

I've texted Cards Assistant GM Terry McDonough before. We've talked on the air a few times, but we haven't been able to catch up in person. He was sitting in the empty stands, watching practice and wearing dark sunglasses. When I looked up, I thought for sure he was a friend of mine who works for Arizona State. I yelled at him to ask if he wears his sunglasses at night. He looked at me like I was an idiot. He was right.

JONATHAN COOPER

He spent most of his time with the "1's," but Earl Watford still had a few reps with the big boys. I didn't hear Cooper get yelled at when he stayed on the field for some reps with the second string, so I'm assuming it was still part of the weekend wake up call. I thought he looked a little more aggressive during 9-on-7.

DEONE BUCANNON

Another day at the office, another interception. To this point, he's not intimidated at all by the big stage. His next stage comes up Saturday. I have a feeling he'll be fine.

PATRICK PETERSON

It's why we love football. The offense is on the field practicing situations. It's late in the "game" and Peterson is covering Larry Fitzgerald. Fitz appeared to get a step as he went over the middle. Peterson recovered and knocked the ball away. The play "won" the game for the defense.

When you started with Bonneville Phoenix: 1st Doug & Wolf Show: 1/2/07

Favorite sports memory: Goldschmidt's triple icing the 2011 NL West title because it was a daddy-daughter day at the ballpark and Bellbrook vs. Dunbar '89 when I hit my one varsity HR.

Favorite all-time athlete: as a kid, Magic...as an adult, Grant Hill

Favorite sports movies: Field of Dreams

Best sports road trip: My honeymoon...wedding Saturday...Braves vs. Reds Sunday Night...Cooperstown Monday through Thursday morning...Jennifer sings the Anthem Thursday night at Fenway... Sox/White Sox triple play and cycle in the same game for only the second time in baseball history...Saturday night Clemens strikes out 9 through 7 but the bullpen blows it and the crowd is furious.

Best game I've ever seen live: Suns/Spurs Game 5 2007 Western Semis (the game w/o Amare & Boris). Hated the outcome but loved the experience.
