This was a wonderful opportunity to photograph a great game. I got some amazing photos. First Class all the way, and if you consider how much game tickets are being scalped for, this is quite a bargain. It even included a parking pass!

Great time, especially if you're a football fan. The RU photographer is a friendly guy, and knows all great spots to be on the field. Make sure you bring some long and fast lenses (I brought both the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 and Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6).
