Today after work I drove over to Lambert Field to see the Boilermakers take on Ball State. When I pulled up the game should have been going, but the tarp was on the field even though the rain was not coming down. While waiting for the game to start rain kept coming off and on, and the game was eventually cancelled.
For over five years I have operated a sports blog that I kept up pretty regularly until this one really got going. It has since suffered a bit, but over the past week I really feel like I am getting back into that mindset. I have seen a few sporting events, and this blog has reflected that. I realize that my audience really doesn't like the sports pictures as much, but this is a blog about my life in pictures over the course of a year.
Today I went to the doubleheader at Lambert Field featuring the Purdue Boilermakers and the Fighting Illini of Illinois. I had a couple of ideas for pictures, but this one came to me as I saw Willie Argo warming up just before game two. Today is the 65th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier. I have always admired him for what he did for baseball so I wanted to get a shot that honored him.
Today I went to the Purdue baseball game after work. The team has been playing very well lately so I really wanted to catch some of the game today. It may be the only opportunity that I have all weekend to see them play. I shot from the side of the Boilers dugout most of the game, but I moved behind the plate late to shoot through the protective screen.
