*"Back on Track…" (or why I still get juiced shooting sports.) June•2010

There’s still something sweet about arriving early to a venue, knowing you’re there working a big game, no matter what the sport. Throw in some of these newer stadiums and arenas where even local high school games are contested nowadays, and when weather conditions are favorable – it’s just about nirvana for me. I’ve written [...]

"All Good Things…" 14•Nov.•09

(You know the rest…) Covered Monroe-Woodbury vs. New Rochelle Class AA State Quarterfinal game at Dietz Satdium up in Kingston, NY on Saturday night. Kingston. Dietz. In the dark. Rain. The state’s two top schools in Class AA football squaring off in the mist and on the rain soaked turf. This too was a game [...]


HS Football Semifinal Playoffs. 30, 31•Oct.•09

“2 Nights. Four games. 150+ Miles. Rain, Turf & Bad Light…” Welcome to the beginning of Section 9 HS Playoff post-season football here in New York’s Hudson Valley. One good thing about covering games in Kingston in the antiquated Dietz Stadium, is that I’m completely familiar with the operation there. Nice turf. Good parking. Bad [...]

“Shaking off the rust…” *(or ‘How I almost lost my groove in covering Army’s home opener on a warm, overcast Saturday in September…’) Back to Michie Stadium at West Point yesterday for the home opener of ARMY hosting Duke. Hard to believe it’s another Fall football season already. Wasn’t I just on this same turf [...]


"Back to the Ballpark…" 17•June•09

It was kind of fun to return to a pro ballpark yesterday for a minor baseball team’s media day. Even it was only a Class A Short Season team here in our area, The Hudson Valley Renegades. There’s still something nice about arriving to a ballpark or arena when it’s empty, and you’re there to [...]


*"The Weekend Was Literally a Blur…" April 10 – 11, 2009.

All I can remember about the past few days was that I had to do a lot of driving. HS baseball. Division I level College Football. More HS baseball. Walked with the Stations of the Cross here in my hometown on Friday morning for the third Good Friday in a row, which proved for good [...]


HS Football Championship Game. Carrier Dome – Syracuse University. 11•30•08

“Road trip….” In the previous post below this one, I kind of laid out everything I packed for the Monroe-Woodbury vs. Orchard Park Class AA State Championship game in the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University on Sunday. Let’s just say it was a lot of gear and support items. No need to list it all [...]


*The (real) "Boys of Summer…" Part II.

More baseball during the last week. This time covering the state semi-finals of the American Legion Tournament here in my hometown of Newburgh, NY. Photographed two big games on Thursday & Saturday, and stopped by the ballpark on my day off on Sunday to see our home team loose their chance to continue onto Virginia [...]


Army – Navy Football in Baltimore, MD. Saturday, Dec. 1, 2007.

8:45PM. I’m starting with this image and how I covered the Army – Navy Football game. After a long, cold day at the ballpark in Baltimore, MD, I ran into these Hispanic workers using leaf blowers to clean the stands. That obviously meant I was in the stadium way too long after a 12 noon [...]
