I was so happy that last nights Stanley Cub Game 2 only went 3.5 periods and not 48 like game one!
I’ve seen him on TV 100 times, but I never saw larger than life politician Chris Christie in person until yesterday.
When the puck dropped last night at the first game of the Stanley Cup, I had no idea what I was in for. After shooting nearly two games worth of hockey, it was over as the Blackhawks beat the Bruins 4-1.
The Blackhawks shot down the Redwings last night and they knocked the dust off of my wings. It has been months since I shot a NHL game and I was happy to find that shooting hockey was like riding a bicycle. I was telling another photographer last night that it took me a few years to figure out how to shoot the game. Once I figured out it was like shooting soccer, but you follow the puck and you follow from time to time where the puck was going, it got a lot easier.
The setting sun shimmered off of wind swept waves on Lake Erie as my plane took off for Chicago and I headed back to normal life, knowing that the people who I covered over the past three days will need a lot more than a 400 mile flight to return to their normal life. I flew to Cleveland on Monday after three women, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, and a child escaped from the home of Ariel Castro after allegedly being held there for about a decade.
