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.




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.
