4A: Game two

"Timpview's Chris Badger (No.20) does "snow angels" on the field after defeating Mountain Crest in the Utah State 4A football semifinals at University of Utah's Rice-Eccles Stadium, Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009. Timpview won, 38-21,advancing to the state championship game against fellow Utah County team, Springville."

After the first game I was covering, rain started to fall and it got cold. This game was much better than the first though despite the rain.

I found this except on the NY Times Lens Blog, and thought it was fitting: "As Walter Iooss and Neil Leifer will tell you, sports photographers have good games and bad games. Like athletes, they get better through intense competition."

Well, as mentioned, the first game was horrible. I had to get better as more and more photographers lined the side lines.

Chris Badger again was photographed by me after he decided to do "snow angles" on the field as the final seconds ticked off the clock.

A couple minutes later, Badger and more teammates did it again, and Chris was right there is make a better frame (although he hasn't posted it yet) of the situation although it was the second time they did it.

Ah, yalp.
