    Default Jets/Colts Preseason Opener...

    A few weeks ago, I was invited to shoot the preseason opener at Met-Life Stadium.

    An old buddy of mine from high school has been the Jets team photographer since 1987. I know a lot of "rock stars", so I offered to get him into the photo pit and backstage at a show or two if he could get me on the sidelines for a Jets game. I honestly thought there was no way he would do it, but he immediately agreed.

    So, what else could I do? I took that game date of August 7 and built a three week photo vacation around it!

    Anyway, here's some of what I came away with from the game:

    1. Obviously I didn't take this one, but this is me and my buddy Al Perreira, the photographer for the Jets. I'm the devilishly handsome young man in the tan NFL Media vest holding the camera:

    2. Jets QB Chris Simms:

    3. This is the game winning field goal. #25 of the Colts came within about four inches of blocking the kick:

    4. One of my favorite shots of the night:

    5. Jets QB Michael Vick handing off the ball:

    6. Colts QB Andrew Luck gets ready to hand off the ball:

    7. Whoops!

    8. Jets QB Geno Smith at the line:

    9. Jets Punter Ryan Quigley takes the snap for the extra point:

    10. Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan:

    11. Colts RB Dan Herron:

    12. Not sure of this guy's name, but I'm pretty sure he's been cut from the Colt's roster. Made for a good photo, though!

    It was an amazing privilege to be invited to shoot. The Jets organization treats "media" (which I technically was) very well. The Jets are playing in Miami later in the season. I'm thinkin' I'm gonna' try to get in on that one, too...

    You would be amazed at how often "What if?" works...

    Great photos, Rex is sure skinny these days. Hope the Jets do better than their preseason forecasted. Maybe they need to bring back Joe Namath.

    Awesome photos. You can really see the focus in each players eyes.
