Go Bruins – Go Mike!

If you missed the UCLA-Stanford game Saturday you missed another incredible white-knuckler.
Note to Bruins: yes, we like drama, but waiting until last 9 minutes of the fourth quarter to score 21 points and tie it up at 24-24 is just a little too much excitement for the likes of me. (The score was Stanford 21, UCLA 3 up until the last nine.)

Our Bruin junior, Michael, was on the sidelines to capture all of the action for the Daily Bruin.

    The photos were all taken by Mike – he’s a Sr. Staff Photog for the Bruin, and was last year’s Photo Editor.
    He was captain of his HS football team so he really knows the game and gets some great shots.
    Yes, we are very proud of him!

    I’m a UCLA fan but only tuned in to the last quarter. That was pretty darned spectacular, to say the least. Your son got some great photos. I’m going to go back and read your other links. It must be a hoot to work on a college daily. Mine published monthly, as does the school I work at now. I was the newspaper advisor for years. Also really like your muertos design–I’m a nut for red and black. I think I’m caught up reading you now; I’ve been remiss for a while in visiting.

    Did go back and look at his other photos–magnificent. I bet he has one of those humongous lenses. Yes? I also noted that the QB was wearing a Joe Namath-type brace on his knee. My eldest son, the one injured in 1979 in a high school game, still wears one to ski and do more vigorous sports. Is your son going into photojournalism? He has a real gift!
