Contact Sport

"Football isn't a contact sport; it's a collision sport. Dancing is a contact sport." - sometimes attributed to both Vince Lombardi and Duffy Daugherty

It's October in a small town and that can mean only one thing, high school football. I've gone with Les to several games and I usually sit in the stands and watch his camera bag and extra lens. Well, this was the homecoming game against the big rival school and there was absolutely nowhere to sit. Luckily I brought my camera so I wandered around the sidelines with Les.
If you have a big giant lens on a nice camera and are frequently seen with the editor of the paper, people just assume you're with the press. My lens isn't ideal for night games, but I did okay. This was my favorite overall shot of the night but I'm also really proud of http://picasaweb.google.com/zhmyers/Sports#5523480859173468562
All the photos from last night's game are in that album. I had such a good time I think I'm going to start going to more sporting events with Les. He said if I get a better shot than him he'll use it in the paper.
Love this!

Nice. I like how a chunk of turf is flying next to the quarterback's head.
