So, long time – no blog.
I just got back from a fun little trip to a ballgame. The first time I’ve flown for a football game in a long time. Jacksonville State handily made their way through the FCS playoffs and serendipitously my work weekends matched up with all of their home games. We don’t really shoot beats anymore – but it began to feel like JSU was my beat.
I photographed them leaving town on Wednesday – taking a lap or two through the Square in Jacksonville then rolling on to Anniston Metropolitan Airport and then on to Frisco, Texas.
Miraculously I found a cheap flight to Dallas – i had to order a new bag(A ThinkTank Photo Airport Security 2 if you are keeping track at home) to carry my football setup. It was crazy heavy and packed to the gills but it got me there.
My folks drove down froM Topeka and I was able to hang out with them and my Aunt and Uncle who live in Dallas. They all hooked me up with my logistics so all I had to do was shoot and move photos. My Dad was able to shoot with me on Saturday as JSU faced North Dakota State. It was a sad day for the Gamecocks as they got blasted by the 5 time champions the North Dakota State Bizon (Bison.) It was quite an experience to be able to soot the game with my dad and hang out with the family on a work trip. Plus we got to eat at In-n-Out in Dallas.
Lots of JSU fan/friends travelled for the game and it was special to be able to share the game with them too!
So all told – it was a success. Maybe the Gamecocks will do it again with a better result.
