    This year nobody was able to help out so it's up to me Bubbles to be bubbly and try to be all I can be which includes (schmoozing with female players, fraternizing with officials and male players, digging gossip about various players / clubs / countries / what not, and maybe doing my job taking some photos on the side).

    If none of you guys know, I lost my ENTIRE photog gear last year due to a breaking and entering by some douchebag or bags.......and yea insurance said FU to me too. So if anyone of you have unused unwanted or cheap for sale Nikkor lens, GIMME GIMME GIMME :p

    Here are the photos, I didn't get to take much since I was really late, and tomorrow I'm line judging so no go tomorrow but Wednesday on hopefully I have some decent coverage.

    Day 4 pics, I got tired of blurry pics, found out at F2 it's sharper however that means the nice bokeh is gone :_( *sigh* can't have everything I guess. I took more people and surrounding life shots this time rather than action.....
