Last weekend I sat baseline as I covered back-to-back women's high school basketball championships.
Not much to write home about, despite having some great arena lighting and a little balcony to make for some nice overhead frames.
However, the action in both games was lackluster, or maybe I just didn't put myself in the right places at the correct times? Alas, I didn't walk away smiling.
I was frustrated, possibly because I love and couldn't stop thinking, not only my jube shot from last season in Maryland, but the story that went behind it, too.
Anyways, I liked the above more than the more literal frame that ended up on A1. In addition, I liked it a hell of a lot more then the "trophy shot" (that the sports desk loves to remind me countless times to get every championship game) that landed on the sports front page.
Hopefully I will be able to focus on nailing the real emotion (win or loss) instead of worrying about a phony-emotioned "trophy shot" as I head up to Ogden to shoot the conclusion on the men's season today.
