For the second week in a row the Baltimore Ravens defeated a team led by a future hall of fame quarterback…and this time they didn’t need a field goal in double overtime to pull it off.
Although the first half of the AFC Championship got off to a slow start at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, the Ravens absolutely dominated Tom Brady and the Patriots in the second half of the game.
But hey…you already know the details and you already know that the Ravens are going to the Super Bowl…pretty sweet!
However that also means one very important thing… I AM GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL
Let me have my little kid moment.
It really hasn’t sunk in yet. To have the opportunity to photograph on the biggest stage in football, amongst THE BEST photographers in the world is a crazy and somewhat daunting thought.
Luckily I have two weeks to let that thought marinate and focus on shooting the biggest game of my career.
What’s left to say? I’m not going to dissect “what went wrong” at the end of this game.
No amount of analysis is going to put the Ravens on a plane to Indy.
The Ravens had an extraordinary season. I can’t tell you how fortunate I feel to have had the opportunity to tag along for the ride. This season brought many highs and lows for the Ravens. I too as a photographer experienced successes and failures from game to game.
Opportunities were missed…Billy Cundiff missed a last second field goal…I missed a shot of Torrey Smith diving into the end zone for a touchdown right in front of me. Why? Does it matter?
It sucks…It REALLY sucks
Sulking about it is not going to make the situation any better.
If you want to grow as a professional, you pick your head up, learn from your mistakes, work hard and hope you have the chance to prove yourself the next time opportunity knocks.
I want to thank everyone for tuning in to this blog all season and I hope you’ve enjoyed my work.
