Major League Soccer : LA Galaxy
This was such an epic session. There is absolutely nothing like standing behind a goal while these athletes take shot on goal prior to the whistle. The ball slamming into the boards and whooshing through the net at speeds, unlike anything I had ever seen before. I played soccer for a good 16 years as a kid and made it to State Finals when I was 17 years old, lost in a shootout, but still, remember those days as some of the best on record.
Sebastian was on the sidelines for a good while with a knee injury and he invited me to sit with him while he took shots on goal from the sideline. Who would say no to that? Not me.
It rained pretty hard 4th quarter but as most of the photographers fled the field, I stayed put and used the armhole a freebie t-shirt over my gear and kept shooting. It was an evening to remember.
