What Can You Say About A Scoreless Game?

What can you say about a scoreless game?  With one per shot for nearly every ten minutes, New York City FC's last home-game against the Chicago Fire was a bit of a snoozer.  Still, one point for the tie is better than none.  Here's hoping that the action heats up with the weather as we head into the Summer.  Hope you like!

A Much Needed Win in the Bronx

New York City FC picked up a much needed win last night in the Bronx keeping Toronto FC scoreless in a 2-0 finish.  NYCFC is down in the points race, but not completely out of playoff contention with a few games left in the season.  After a year of controversy and injury, Frank Lampard nets his first goal for the club off a running bicycle kick assist from RJ Allen. 

For this one I decided on two remote cameras, one in the center behind the goal with a super-wide angle (14mm 2.8), and another around half-way between the six and eighteen yard boxes on the endline with a 50mm lens to catch any action in the box with the crowd behind.  As always I love my portraits and shot more of them than action.  Always fun to see members of the US National Team of which we had three in Mix, Bradley, and Altidore.  Enjoy!

A Very Cold and Snowy Argentina vs Ecuador

Argentina faced Ecuador last Tuesday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey as part of a two game prep for the upcoming Copa America tournament in Chile.  An hour of rain turned into a half hour of snow before finally letting up.  No surprise, the recently injured Lionel Messi didn't push his luck under the tough conditions.  Ecuador fought hard, but in the end Argentina maintained the upper-hand winning 2 goals to 1.
