Front Row Seats

Posted in life, photography by amoslanka on January 29, 2009

So today Michael Chen and I acquired press passes to the Portland Trail Blazers game at the Rose Garden. The deal was that bracelets for a local charity in honor of a Portland police officer killed in the line of duty were being worn by some of the Portland players. If I understand correctly, one of the guys at work is helping with the website for the charity and needed some shots of the players wearing the bracelets. I have no problem taking a few photos in exchange for a press pass. Coolest part was, we had two reserved seats, one was about 10 feet from the bench. Here’s a few photos from the evening:

We literally sat this far from the Blazers bench.

The “Z Man” bracelets we were there to photograph..

This guy got his wish.

UPDATE: 

Huzzah! Michael found this hilight reel shortly after the game. I can pick me out of the crowd, but I doubt anyone else would be able to. If you watch all the way to the end of the clip, however, you can easily see Michael in the background of a zoomed in shot.

    Now you just need to get some press passes for hockey. Say any gave involving Boston or Philly, or better yet, both.
