GO 'DAWGS!The crowd was a sea of red shirts as the Harrisburg Bulldogs made it 30-0 for the year. Despite a punishing 3-point shooter on the other team, the 'Dawgs played a smart strategic game to win. State final Class-2 game is Saturday at 15:20 at THE University of Missouri Arena.
The school tried to get us in to this game as yearbook photographers, but the state high school sports association, with a proprietary interest in having their own photographers on the floor, didn't let just anybody in to shoot, so I was relegated to the riff-raff. Several small-town papers, most of which didn't cover the game anyway, also didn't come up with a pass for me. Both Columbia papers have covered Harrisburg ball pretty well this year, especially after the girls' team moved into the regional brackets. Apparently, the best way to get down on the floor is to carry a P&S camera. A lot of people were walking around the court with cameras that weren't pointed at the game and clicking. I'll just keep practicing, and eventually I'll get to shoot the finals one year.
SO, we shot from the seats and had a great time. When you get lemons - make lemonade.
In yer face and over-the-top ball
From tip-off to final buzzer, it was in-your-face ball
