Charity Flag Football - Firefighers vs NE Patriots

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by jklofft, Jun 20, 2007.

  1. The local firefighters held a charity flag football game against members of the NE Patriots past & present last night. A long moment of silence was observed at the start in memory of the tragedy that occured in SC earlier in the day.

    The locals were no match for the pros (surprise?)

    As the Pats scored on 3 of their first 4 plays

    While their defense smothered the locals holding them to 1 point (an int/runback on an extra point attempt)

    NIKON D200    ---    200mm    f/2.8    1/1600s    ISO 400


    The locals substituted, adding youth and athleticism

    NIKON D200    ---    200mm    f/3.5    1/2500s    ISO 400


    But even they were no match to the fleet footed pros

    NIKON D200    ---    200mm    f/2.8    1/350s    ISO 400


    Later in the second half, the locals evened the playing field by inserting their secret weapon. Who keep the pros off balance
    80860544.
    NIKON D200    ---    116mm    f/2.8    1/1000s    ISO 200


    And managed to break through and score
    80860549.
    NIKON D200    ---    80mm    f/2.8    1/800s    ISO 400


    After that, the game got close, but the Pats were victorious in the end. A good time was had by all.
