Prequel to the Sequel

First football game of the season

Posted in Editorial, Sports by brmeyer3 on 09/10/2010

Last weekend I headed down to St. Louis to shoot the Illinois football game against Mizzou. 2 other sports writers and myself decided to head down the night before the game to do some gambling at the casino (which never happened). We woke up the next morning an hour and a half before kickoff thinking we would arrive at the stadium with more then enough time. Well after the driver forgot where his car was, missing our exit ramp on the highway, and hitting a ridiculous amount of traffic, I made it onto the field 2 minutes before kickoff. It was a beautiful day outside and the game was being held in a dome, which was kind of a bummer. Illinois looked strong the first half and I got a ton of great images, but during the second half the Illini lost their drive and my shooting skills seemed to have declined as well. The worst part about the trip was the three hour drive back to Champaign where I had to lay down in the trunk of a Jeep Grand Cherokee that was half full with everyone’s bags.

    Looks like you got a lot of highlights, and I’m not talking about top plays of the game
