“Flyin’ Through the Air…with the Greatest of Ease!”

ELMIRA, N.Y. – January 6, 2013 – The Elmira Jackals closed out a four game week by claiming a 4-3 win over the Trenton Titans on Sunday at First Arena. The win moved Elmira’s record to 17-15-3 on the season. Without a doubt, this is the best Sequence of Action Shots that I’ve captured so far this season. Enjoy watching Jackals Captain Jean Bourbeau’s mid-ice hip check sends a Trenton Titan Tripping along with Bourbeau himself & Jackals Teammate forward Jordan Pietrus !  OUCH!

A Wet Watkins – NASCAR WGI 2012 Day#1

Got up early and was at the track at 7:45 A.M., and so was the crappy weather. With lots of racing cancelled because of the rain, this Friday was spent mostly at driver Press Conferences & in and around the Garage & Media Center.

 

 

 

 

.

.

 

.

 

.

.

.

Drivers in order: Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Martin Truex Jr., Tony Stewart & Clint Bowyer.

Then it’s upstairs to the WGI Studios of @WRCE-AM1490 & we find my buddy Chris P. Bacon doing his On-Air Thing, while interviewing a young NASCAR fan from Ohio who’s here with his Dad for the Glen Races for the 9th time.  Finally as I was leaving the Media Center for the day, I ran into former Three Time Heavyweight Boxing World Champion Michael Moorer, who was being interviewed by Andy & the Crew from WENY TV 36. Definitely a fun day to start this 2012 NASCAR Weekend……Stay tuned tomorrow for lots of exciting Saturday Racing Pictures from WGI Day #2.
