LeSean McCoy stays low to cross the goal line and score a game-tying two-point conversion. I knew exactly which play they were going to run, so I got myself into position for this shot. Of course, I alway know exactly which play they are going to run. It's just that most of the time, my psychic commands don't seem to penetrate their helmets or something.
Asante Samuel looks for running room after one of his two interceptions. Fallen Redskins QB Jason Campbell is on the ground going "Oh *#@^!"
This is the pass that lead to the aforementioned interception. The young QB was under a lot of pressure. I like the challenge of the almost impossible contrast between the players in the shade and the sunny background.

This place was the point of convergence. In one area the Philadelphia Eagles and Giants would meet and within hours, the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees would meet in game four of the World Series. (above) Outside The Linc, a guy wearing a Giants jersey outside The Linc gets some attention even as his brother-in-law, left, sports an Eagles jersey. Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies play, is in the background.
This Langhorne, PA couple, the Romeo & Juliet of the sports world share a moment together before gametime.
I shoot football with two cameras, one for far away and one for when they get closer. When Eagles RB Leonard Weaver started running through the line, I was using the big lens. I quickly realized he was breaking away (and starting to fill the frame), so I picked up the other camera in time to catch him jumping away from a tackle before reaching the endzone for the Eagles' first TD.
Eagles defender Quintin Mikell was sure he was going to make an interception, but somehow the ball slipped through his hands.
Former Eagles coach, the late Buddy Ryan used to say about receiver Chris Carter "All he does is catch touchdowns". All current Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson does is catch long touchdowns (and return kicks for long touchdowns). With this 54-yd TD he tied an Eagles record with his sixth TD of the season of 50-plus yards.
Giants QB Eli Manning usually makes a good expression when he gets sacked.
I never saw Andy Reid open his mouth this wide as he tells QB Donovan McNabb a thing or two late in the game. McNabb now has a bunch of stuff like over 30,000 yds passing, over 200 TDs passing and 3,000 rushing yds and 20 rushing Tds. You get the point.

Just got back from a visit to "The Most Important Event in Photography: October 22-24, 2009. Located at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City the show boasts a huge expo floor, hundreds of exhibitors, thousands of new products and a conference with over 100 seminars." That's some hype! I went up with fellow photographer Mike Dill. Besides being tempted with all the photo equipment I don't have but really "need" there was a special reason to go this year. There was an exhibit of some of the photos from the do1thing project in which I participated and one of my images was on display.

Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jeremy Maclin makes his first TD catch, of two on the day vs the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Philadelphia Eagles FB Leonard Weaver scores the Eagles' 2nd TD of the day in the 2nd quarter on a 20-yd pass play. Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Geno Hayes is on the ground.
His second one, a 40-yd TD pass from QB Donovan McNabb in the 2nd quarter, was a little easier. Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Will Allen is at left.

The game was preceeded by the always awe-inspiring military jet fly-by. I'm serious, when those big birds of fire scream overhead, all I want to know is where do I surrender?
DeSean Jackson's 71 TD catch from QB Kevin Kolb was cause for celebration early.
Unfortunately, there were more big plays going the other way.
