Thant's impressive, the locker room looks really dark though.

I was photographing an event they were filming in Oregon once.  The begged me for some photos to use and promised me a shirt in exchange and that they would provide me press credentials for some bigger events that i was having a hard time getting coverage for.  I'm still waiting on the shirt (it was in 2015) and the credentials didn't show up either.

Good MORNING!!!  Got up stupid early to watch some Greco this morning.   Going to take my son into town today for the first 3rd/4th flag football game of the season.  Should be an interesting experience.  Last year the first game was chaotic and almost scary.  They seem to be doing a bit better this year.

Our football coach (also the Principal/AD) is open to wrestling, the community hates the idea.  We're a basketball community and we don't want to hurt our basketball team.

Long day Monday, ended it with my son's football practice (3rd/4th grade flag football) and then the school board meeting.  Time for a beer and some old wrestling matches.

Most likely.  We were fairly good in the past playing 8 man.  We had a fairly cancerous class come through that wanted to win a state title or not compete at all.  They realized that we couldn't beat our rival (though we could have been a state semifinalist team) so none of them came out for football just wanting to focus on basketball (we were the 2x defending state champs).  Halfway through last season we had to cancel the remainder of the season because we couldn't field a team.  This year we have a lot more kids out and we would probably be competitive in 8 man.

In Oregon we have 8 man as well, it is still a 100 yards wide but narrower, a 6 man field is 15 yards narrower than an 8 man field. 
Everyone is eligible.
The Quarterback must hand off the ball or pass it before he crosses the line.
15 yards to a first down.
A "2 pt conversion" is worth 1 point.
An "extra point" is worth 3 points.

We scored 72 points and had our 2nd string in for most of the 2nd half.

How many medals do you see us getting, and who gets them?

Off to photograph a high school football game today.  The local schools play in a 6 man league this year.  I've never seen 6 man football before, it should be interesting.

My college dorm was named Dorian.

Why are we as a sport so terrible with getting out information?  I can't imagine a college football team not having their schedule or roster updated by this point.

I don't think that this hurt Zane's peaking at all.  Most guys were doing simulation matches, this was the best type of simulation match you can get. 

Didn't Yianni tear his ACL in the quarters?

WA is in the top 10!!   We never went to the MN fair when we lived in Apple Valley.  Too many little kids to get lost and they would just walk away.  In fact, after many years and we moved to Seattle, we finally said to ourselves that the kids are big enough not to go walking off by themselves.  So we went.  Our youngest son walked off.  He got escorted back to us by the police.  That is a nerve wracking experience.  He stayed right with us the rest of the day.  Word


Where in Washington do you live?  Oregon state fair is decent sized but I still don't trust my kids to wander around it by themselves.  Our county fair is tiny, no rides, only about 3 vendors, mainly just animals and then we do either a Demolition derby or Bull Riding in the evening.

I still see Yianni as the future for that spot.  I think that Zain had a great game plan and did a fantastic job of shutting Yianni down when he needed to but I see Yianni making larger jumps than Zain and taking the spot from him soon.

The Ocean can be quite dark at night.  It is amazing that none of the crew died but all of the passengers did, while none of the passengers survived.  That just sounds fishy.
