In the next few weeks, I will be busy shooting basketball tournaments and hopefully a few state championship games, but winter season is winding down and I am ready to replace the hardwood floor and florescent lights with some grass between my toes and some ambiet light commonly known as the sun! Yes, even me, born in February, a Pisces through and through, and self proclaimed cold-climateer. I kind of made that one up, like Mouseketeer, but I don't think you'll find my word in Ole' Webster.
So, here's what I'm thinking, there is a very short time between seasons and the infamous All-Area photo sessions, but I would like to have a wee bit of fun!
I am going to be rating the high school gyms in the next couple of weeks . . . just for fun! I do want to be invited back next year!
We photojournalists have our own reasons why a gym may be considered a gem, a diamond in the rough or a lump of fool's gold. Do understand, these reasons may be considered ridiculous to most, but not to a sports photog.
The following schools are in the Press coverage area and will be rated ...Coginchaug, Cromwell, Hale-Ray, H-K, Portland, Mercy, Middletown, Portland, Vinal and Xavier! If you notice, I listed them in alphabetical order so I am not excused of playing favorites.
Keep checking in to see how your school gym rates!
In the meantime, grab a cup of hot cocoa, sit back, and enjoy the sports videos on middletownpress.com I hope to keep them coming during Spring 2011 season!
