Soccer Season is Over (for now)

Yesterday was Max's last day of soccer season this year (and mine too). I was his coach at Goldstar Soccer Club for the fall season and we had a blast. I've posted some photos of Max and the rest of my team over at Flickr.

Indoor season starts January 4th!

My Group Hug with Craig Waibel

I went to MLS Cup 2006 over the weekend and had a great time. My morning started off photographing a couple of teams from the Raleigh area that were playing in a youth tournament in conjunction with the "super bowl of american soccer". My evening ended when Houston won the Cup on penalty kicks and Dynamo defenseman Craig Waibel was so excited that he ran and launched himself into the supporters section for a group hug. Above is a picture snapped just before Waibel jumped on top of me (in the red hoodie with a camera in my hand)!

My photographs from the game are available here. But here's my favorite, of Pat Onstad just after he saved the final penalty kick.

Off to GrandMott's

We're sending the kids to visit my mom this weekend and they are super excited about going to see their GrandMott. Earlier today, Max got his and Molly's suitcases out and started packing. So what does a 5 year old pack for a trip to grandma's?
  • 7 t-shirts
  • 3 pairs of pants
  • 7 pairs of underwear
  • 1 sock (note: note 1 pair of socks, just one single sock)
Molly on the other hand was more of a minimalist. First she packed her plush puppy, then she changed her mind and packed a bag of goldfish crackers instead.

Ed Bradley R.I.P.

I once flew on a plane with Ed Bradley, the 60 Minutes correspondent who passed away today. Ed was in first class; I was in coach!

I remember the woman beside me debating if would be okay to go "through the curtain" into first class to get his autograph. :)
