The Coolest Hockey Photo I’ve Ever Snapped

This post was updated on April 11, 2007 to fix broken images and links.

This is the first season where I make a point to take my camera to games… much to my wife’s dismay because she thinks I look like “The Dork in the Stands Taking Pictures”.

She’s right… I am that dork. Last night we picked up the work tickets, so you should notice a change in perspective. Check this shit out:

First goal of the game… perfect timing.

And, for those of you who loves you some Internet memes:

The game itself started off pretty well, with the Caps taking a 2-0 lead early in the second period. Then, everything went to shit, and all hell broke loose. There were a total of 176 penalty minutes issued during the game, and of those, ten 5-minute stints were for fighting, and seven 10-minuters were game misconducts. Caps defenseman John Erskine led the pack with 29 minutes in penalties. It was a bloodbath, and I have the photos to prove it.

  1. Speaking as the “former dork taking pictures in the stands,” I want to say: Good job! Nice photos. I will resist the temptation to say “been there, done that.” Oh. Oops!

    I particularly love the meme one; saving that one!

    Hope to see you two at a game soon!
