With both the mens and womens team playing Sunday I had a few pictures of Ohio State and Purdue on my camera. I took even more pictures at the womens game because it was the last game of the season at home, and they had special uniforms on. I may get to see them play again, but you never know. I wish they were pictures from a win, but you can’t change what happened. Here is possibly the last womens photo gallery of the season.
Saturday night I was in Ewigleben Ice Arena to see Ferris State take on Ohio State. After what Ohio State did to my Boilers earlier in the day I really wanted to see them lose at hockey. Sadly they did not. I still had a great time at the game. This was my first time shooting a hockey game with my camera, and I learned a lot real fast. I know that hockey is a fast sport, but through a camera lens against the glass it is super fast. Once I got the feel for the speed down on the ice though I had a good time. Some of the pictures not included in this post will show up on this site over the next couple of days. I have about thirty other pictures that I will post in two segments. This was my first hockey game in about 3 1/2 years. I will have to see another one much quicker than that. Continue reading →
Have you ever noticed that their are a lot of schools in Michigan that end in State? Grand Valley State takes on another state from their own state this weekend when they travel to Big Rapids to play the Ferris State Bulldogs. Before last weekend this was shaping up to be a huge game. Both teams were undefeated in the GLIAC North. The Bulldogs lost to Northern Michigan in the dome 22-20 though to take some of the luster off of the game. With about four minutes left in the game Northern Michigan kicked a field goal that gave Ferris their first loss in the GLIAC this season. As it is though if Ferris State wins they can still pull back even in the standings. This game is the season right now for Ferris State. This will be my first trip to Top Taggert Field. At one point in my life I almost attended Ferris State for all the wrong reasons, so this will be a cool trip to see the campus a little. In conjunction with the football game Saturday I will also be at the Ferris State hockey game that night against Ohio State (Another State team). I figured that I sold my Ohio State football tickets for Saturday against Purdue so I should at least see part of the Ohio State game and boo the hockey team. I will be against the Bulldogs in the afternoon, but I hope they can pull off the win at night. Continue reading →
