The Arizona Wildcats rolled into town and proved why they were ranked high as they were all season and going into the tournament. They dominated the Buffs start to finish behind a big night from Nick Johnson.
What seemed like a game the Broncos would roll in turned into the worst Super Bowl, no worst NFL game, ever played by any NFL team. Downtown Denver started out enthusiastic and filled with hope. I guess I am just lucky that the loss meant no riots and tear gas.
I carried a small camera around as I ran cards for the Getty team. Got a couple of miles in as I circled the field a few dozen times. I enjoyed the experience and would do it again. Didn't need the camera but had fun with the single fixed-length lens and the great light.
The #10 ranked Oregon "fighting" Ducks landed in Boulder and I watched and shot as the Buffs "beat them at their own game" of just running the score up. I enjoy the very few NCAA Basketball Games I end up shooting, probably since I only end up shooting the better opponents, and the Buffs definitely play well against good teams. The loss for the Ducks was the first of the year for them, and the 191 total points scored was by far the most I've ever witnessed at a college game. I was happy with the set I made as well. Thanks for looking.
I always enjoy shooting the Oilers, regardless of their record, for the young players and for the classic style. They play good hockey and the games in Denver always seem close. The Avalanche would take this one, though.
I enjoyed shooting this "new rivalry" game which is "new" due to the re-alignment of the NHL conferences for this season. I also enjoyed the new uniforms of the visiting Stars. The Avalanche handled the Stars and I shot a late-game photo of the Avalanche Ice Girls sweeping around frustrated goalie Kari Lehtonen.
Tough loss for the Broncos, who just couldn't get drives going for much of this game. The rematch, with significantly higher stakes, is scheduled for Sunday night, January 12, 2014. The game went OK for me, though I missed the single best play that happened in front of me all year when Keenan Allen hurdled a defender for his first of two touchdowns on the night. You hate to miss those. Oh well. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
Can't lie and say I don't enjoy some sprayed ice, as well as being around and watching the girls who clear it for us during the commercial breaks.Glad the Avalanche brought some ice girls to Denver, and I think they enjoy their job.
The Broncos handled the Titans on this cold Sunday afternoon. I wore five layers of shirts and two layers of pants, and I was comfortable through the freezing cold game. Prater nailed a 64-yard field goal with seconds left in the first half for that "perfect storm" field goal where everything had to align for it to even be attempted. He owes Broncos TE Joel Dreessen a couple of beers for getting tackled at just the right spot. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
The Avalanche continued their early season winning ways against the visiting capitals, who featured the diva flopper Alex Ovechkin this particular evening. At one point Ovie lied against the boards motionless for about a minute after tripping over Jan Hejda, before getting up, skating to the bench, and taking his next shift. Nice win for the Avs.
