The Snooze Button Edition
Getting to Ballston by 11am on a Saturday morning may not seem like that much of an ordeal, but trust us, it was ball-buster.
We were dragging a little yesterday morning following Friday night’s festivities at Nellie’s which saw a nice contingent of Caps fans turn out to watch the Devils game. The food, drinks and Caps performance was satisfying, though we were forced to stake out some real estate at the bar, competing with the many hoops fans. We commandeered a small corner table upstairs and officially christened the cozy nook as the ‘Penalty Box.’ And thanks to a couple of sportswriter pals too, who came by.
We got up at the crack of 10am on Saturday and made it to Kettler in time for practice. Thanks to @Ikeastan, she showed us the one pane of clean glass that made for the best camera position. Not that it helped our shooting all that much, as the following pictures will demonstrate a remarkable lack of photographic skill.
Compare and contrast Bridget’s great shots to our shoddy work. We won’t blame the equipment however – the $10 Canon we used is forever known as the ‘Shaky-Cam,’ having been tested numerous times in the war-zone that is DC’s Moultrie Courthouse.
More blurry and poorly-framed shots follow.
And we saved the best for last.
