Last weekend I had the opportunity to cover the highly anticipated matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts.  Covering this game was a blast.  Not only was it a great matchup (Seattle 4-0 and Colts 3-1), but this was also my first NFL game, so there was a lot of anticipation leading up it.   It was nice to spend some of that time getting to know some of the local and Seattle based photographers — some very nice people!  During the game, there was so much excitement both on the field and in the stands.  It was incredibly loud, which was probably due to the fact that Lucas Oil Stadium, an indoor venue, was maxed to capacity with 67,000 or so screaming Colts fans.  It was cool to witness such energy…

For my Stanford friends – I’d also like to note that Andrew Luck is an exceptionally talented quarterback, connecting with almost every receiver throughout the game.   My Stanford friends, along with the rest of the anti-Trojan world, will also probably like the last photo, which shows Pete Carroll’s dejection as he congratulates the Colt’s Head Coach Chuck Pagano following the game.  Pete Carroll had the same expression during the press conference after Stanford beat USC at home in 2007 for the first time in six years.

Thanks for looking
