It was soccer.

Okay, so my soccer knowledge is slightly better than my volleyball knowledge, but that's not saying much.

Nonetheless, I placed FOURTH. Covering my first sporting event and covering soccer and I place fourth. Not too shabby, eh?

It was funny, though. We were all up in the press box...and I couldn't see very well. And I was only half paying attention. So I had to ask around to see what was going on haha. And no one could see the jersey numbers so everytime someone made a play, it was like "who was that? No. 3 or No. 6?!"

(I took this during halftime because I was bored....this is Mario, the other guy from our school who did sports with me. Everyone found it funny that I beat him.)

But we had a postgame press conference and got a box score and miscallaneous stats, so most of the story came off that.

Being up in a press box was kind of cool though.

I also got SECOND place for a mail-in news feature. I have no idea which story it was, but I'm pretty sure it was something relating to Jackie Robinson, because I remember that coming up when we were discussing what to send.

I am surprised but veryyyy happy! I've gotten something at the other JACCs I've been to but I FINALLY got past the honorable mentions!

(This is me playing with one of the photographers' Cannon D1s. Yeah, it was heavy too.)

I snapped pictures like crazy, even though I looked quite weird next to the photogs and their huge ass SLRs. But I took over 200 pictures...some people were like, dude you should switch over to the photography side. *shrug*

(and here are a bunch..)

Took this on the way there Saturday. It was just after 7, so the sun was still coming up. The back window was misty, it was hard to focus because of bumpy roads and going 85, and I came up with this trippy shot.

All the schools bring their newspapers to share. We picked up one of every school's I think. This is the pile...

And Natasha prepping for hers.

Oh, and UCLA won y'allz. 8-0 baby! I actually called the boy to find out the score...we were sitting there waiting for awards and I wanted to know and also kill time....and we ended up having a 1/2 hour conversation...then I called him again afterwards for the final score and I found out they won in OT again. Later on, I found out that they were down by 21 with 8:26 left in the game and they cam back. WHOA.
