Notre Dame came to Air Force unranked, and played well enough that two weeks later, they were in the top 25. Few surprises in the game, and I gained a renewed appreciation for the reasonably clean lines of the Air Force stadium.
In one of very few early losses for the Avalanche, Niklas Kronwall got hit hard and I personally had a Macbook retina laptop stolen in the second period. After discovering the loss, I did not stay to the end to shoot the Avalanche lose, and I was thankful for Dropbox, which was my primary backup for my work and recent files. Lame night for this photographer, but all ended up fine thanks to good buddy Ron and his insurance services. Contact me for details.
It's taken me a while to post this one (and everything after it) because I had just a bad game. I mishandled my memory cards and deleted images, on top of just not "seeing" anything I liked. Manning celebrated a touchdown pass with D. Thomas right in front of me, and I liked that, but overall, this is one I wish I could do again. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
