Today has been a pretty interesting day…I started it off with my truck breaking down right in front of my house right before I had a photo assignment.  With the help of my girlfriend who had the day off, I was off to shoot the final game of the Round Rock Express.  It was nice shooting in the daytime and the game was soon over.  I’ll post some shots from the game tomorrow.

After the baseball game, I almost immediately went to my next assignment, the last home game of the Austin Aztex soccer match against the Portland Timbers.  It was a great game with a lot of action.  Pretty awesome seeing the guys play so well.  It was almost heart breaking seeing them lose with just minutes left.  They held their own against the number one ranked USL-1 team…I guess I shouldn’t have said the ‘last’ home game, as the Aztex will be hosting an exhibition game against Club de Futbol Monterrey in early October.
