... and we're not even talking about the USA-Mexico friendly qualifier set for Wed. Feb. 11 (which conveniently starts and finishes before the Other Big Game that night).

Nope, today is opening day for the Carolina RailHawks preseason training camp. As I type, the team has been going at it on a gorgeous, precociously verdant morning at the WakeMed soccer complex.

We're told that in addition to the players that have popped up on this blog in recent weeks, such "recent college graduates like UNC’s Michael Callahan, Garry Lewis and Brian Shriver, and NC State’s El Hadj Cisse’" will also be evaluated.  

Check back in this space later in the week for a report. Correspondent Chris Gaffney and I hope to get over to Cary to watch a session.
