I've been shooting "The Freak" since 2008 and I always enjoy it, but unfortunately he just doesn't dominate like he used to. The Rockies got to him for 6 runs this time, and the Giants never had a chance. The Rockies would go on to win 3 of the 4 games in the series. All photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
The mighty Yankees coming to town, lacking most of the star power, and still give the crowd a show. We saw Mariano Rivera, we saw Ichiro, we saw a bad call at first base lead to a Yankees win, and we saw Vernon Wells play third base for the first time as a professional.

According to a new acquaintance, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Joe Maddon likes to tell reporters that he doesn't mind "meat loafing" teams, or, is pretty happy winning 2 out of 3 games ("two out of three ain't bad"). Jhoulys Chacin had a rough day on the mound and the Rockies fall on an overcast Sunday afternoon. All photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
Rockies had a great night at the plate against reigning Cy Young Award winner David Price, and rookie Nolan Arenado hit his first career grand slam to help the Rockies beat the Rays on a beautiful May evening at Coors Field. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
Last minute assignment to shoot the Wild as they attempt to make the playoffs with either a victory and/or a Blue Jackets loss, both occur, and the Wild go back to Minnesota happy. The word in the arena was that this would be Milan Hejduk's last NHL game, so I watched for chances to shoot him as well.
The Rockies cruised to victory over the Diamondbacks on their way to a 16-11 April. Cody Ross and Kirk Gibson were ejected and a blast from the past, Eric Chavez, hit a sweet homerun for the losing team. All photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
I got a note from Mclatchey's D.C. news bureau asking my availablity on Wednesday, April 17, without any further details. Sure, I was available. They wanted some images to go along with an article about Colorado's upcoming status as a marijuana enthusiasts' vacation destination, and the agency had set up an interview at a marijuana dispensary near my house, that actually specializes in edibles.
The shop owner was up skiing and had "intended to cancel the interview" but forgot to let the reporter know, so instead of cancelling, he was just really late, and his employees were really nervous that there were reporters inside the business. It was an interesting assignment and shoot.
