For their first game of the 2008 season, the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz hosted the Arkansas Twisters on Compassionate Care Hospice Field at Ford Center. Yard Dawgz Head Coach Gary Reasons returned to the team after a three year hiatus and had a successful homecoming as the Dawgz beat the Twisters, 57-42.
During the first half of the game, I was shooting from above in the catwalk area when my Nikon D200 stopped working. Luckily, I had a backup camera body from Baker Photo & Video. After I brief talk to the CFO of the company (my wife, Irene), I ordered a new Nikon D300 and sent the D200 in for repair. It's nice to know that I will now have a backup camera for on-location shoots. I really can't complain, my D200 has in working like a charm for over 2 years with over 70,000 shots.
Here are two shots from the game.... More available on the OKC Yard Dawgz website.
