Team USA Strikes Again

Friday, September 26, 2008


And no, I'm not talking about our national team. I've joined a coed house team at Ultimate Soccer which was incidentally named Team USA and is made up of germans, serbians, and then some americans, of course. (I seem to be the only person that thinks our team name is hilarious.) When I first arrived and noticed that most of them were european, all I could think of was how much bigger soccer is over there and that they would all probably be really amazing. Well, so far our whole team is pretty amazing and we've been slaughtering everyone we play. It's just been crazy. Part of the time I go from feeling somewhat pathetic (like getting hit square in the face by the ball) to feeling like maybe I'm doing pretty good.

To give a little perspective, I played soccer from when I was 5 years old to a varsity soccer team in high school. At our first game one of the guys were complaining about having not played in eight weeks... That's when it really hit me that it has been over a decade since I've last played. (!!!) So with that in mind, I think I'm actually doing great!

Last night we won out third game 11-3.

A busy few weeks

Thursday, September 18, 2008


I've been meaning to get some new photography up here, but the past two weeks have been a whirlwind. I just got back from visiting my sister in Toronto, I've wrapped up a few projects, started some new ones; started a new semester of teaching etc. It's just that time of year I guess. Summer's over.

I should have the Bastone series posted soon under the Projects section. In the meantime, I've added a few of the barley, hops and beer photos to the main page slideshow.

I also wanted to mention that my friend, Emily Schaller, is featured in this month's edition of Forbes magazine. They wrote an article on Cystic Fibrosis featuring her, though seeming to neglect to mention all the work she's done to raise money and awareness for CF. (See the City to City Ride 08 and the annual Just Let Me Breathe Benefit Concert.) She was rumored to be getting the cover, but was bumped off by Condie Rice. Anyway, check out the article here. If you ever need a little inspiration, consider that aside from running about 25 miles a week, Emily has run a half marathon and bicycled 280 mile trips – and all with CF!

Incidentally, I've also been working hard on getting her some new photography and a new site. (The photo above was taken at the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival.) I'll post it when it's live.
