49ers vs Vikings (September 23, 2012) – Photo by Terrell Lloyd & edited by Melissa Datu
I wanted to share my first official post on Play Action Shoot! Since the rest of the crew (Terrell & Kym) are currently working at the 49ers/Jets game, I didn’t want to sit on the couch and do nothing.
So this is how I spent my Sunday.
I edited pictures and blogged at home, while the crew is away at the game. I wanted to contribute one way or another. Check it out!
The place was packed (more than usual), due to the fact that the 49ers just came off an amazing 2011-2012 season. Even though I only hung out for a couple hours, since I had to be on the field for work; I still had a great time.
I’m the type of person who hates surprises. Call me a bit of a control freak, but every part of me needs to know the basic who, what, when, and how. That’s just me.
However, last year’s 49ers season wasn’t expected at all and this time I can’t complain.
No one could have called it. They had a depressing 6-10 record the year before and no real sign of hope in the near future. Confronted with an NFL lockout, made it even more difficult to stay optimistic.
Who could that be on television walking by Patrick Willis after the 49ers vs Vikings preseason game?
Me, of course!!! Waldo, who?
It’s become a tradition with my family and friends to play “Where’s Datu?” My family has recorded each game that I’ve worked on the field (only three so far, but many more to come), and we watch it after, in hopes of spotting myself on t.v.
Life has been pretty hectic with school and work. I haven’t been able to incorporate much sports time and blogging in my busy schedule.
However, I was able to knock two birds with one stone with this post.
My teacher gave me permission to write about today’s Super Bowl for my first essay. So I chose the argumentative route. I decided to explain why I think the New England Patriots will lose this one…again.
