Fantasy football at Death Valley?

This looks fun.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is introducing the first Clemson Tiger Football Fantasy Camp. If you're old enough to drink, you're old enough to play a football game in Death Valley.
Men and women age 21 or older can sign up for this three-day camp from April 17-19 at which they will meet and work with the Clemson coaching staff, and practice and play in Death Valley. They'll gear up for the first "All-In Bowl" in Death Valley on the 19th.
"This is an opportunity for our fans to live out their dreams and experience the history, traditions, and passion that make Clemson such a special place," Swinney said in a prepared statement. "We are going to have a lot of fun, but at the same time teach Clemson football. The campers will have a good idea what a Clemson football player goes through in practice and on game day in Death Valley. Also, I am really excited about our legends coming back and participating."
Danny Ford, Michael Dean Perry, Perry Tuttle, Jeff Davis, and others will be on hand to talk with the campers.
If it weren't for that whole $2,000 registration fee (some of which is tax deductible), I might sign up. (I was a heck of a tailback on IU's co-ed flag team, but we were about as good as the real deal, so I don't brag much about it.)
It's always fun, though, to learn more about the game from the guys who get paid to know it the best.
