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.
By my photos, this was the Varly show, and indeed it was. The Avalanche beat visiting Steve Downie and the Philly Flyers 2-1 on this hot night in January.
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.
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.
Who would have thought at the start of the year that the Redskins would go 3-13 behind second year quarterback RG III? Not this photographer. Despite a strong first half effort, including a pick six off of Manning (second image above), the Broncos beat the Redskins 45-21 on a nice late October day. Photographs copyright Getty Images 2013.
