Covered my first pro football game in a LONG time. How long? Well, it was the 1984 and 1985 seasons when the Colts had just moved to Indianapolis and they where playing at the Hoosier Dome. That same stadium that was demolished four years ago. Makes me feel old.
I have covered a lot of college football since then but I had not had the opportunity to cover the pros until UPI hired me to shoot the Redskins third preseason game against the Colts. Had not really thought about it, but now it seems fitting.
Overall, it went pretty well although I did miss some key plays that happened on the other end of the field. But there is not much you can do about that. They had asked me to cover both teams since they had the number one and two draft picks for 2012.
Here are some of my favorites from the game. The full set of selects can be found in my archive at: petemarovichimages.photoshelter.com.
