Good morning all, I hope this finds everyone well ahead of another sunny weekend. Anyways, I have a bit of news to share. After a three year exile of sorts, I have been approved to cover all Houston Texans home games this season, with the possibility of shooting the playoffs as well. But I will be there for the preseason, season opener and all the action.
Needless to say, I am beyond overjoyed to be covering the Houston Texans again, in their biggest season to date. But it's also a sense of achievement in accomplishing the biggest goal I set for myself since 2009. A little backstory, I actually did cover the Texans a few years ago, shooting 14 games across four seasons (2006-09). But due to unfortunate circumstances, I was unable to continue shooting pro and college sports after October 2009. After a real down period, I was able to work my way back into that realm from March 2011 onward, covering mainly college athletics, yet I always had the NFL as a distant goal. Even as this calendar year has progressed with shooting more of the Dynamo and Astros, I still hoped to cover pro football again. And as of yesterday, that goal has been realized. I won't lie, I might be a little emotional at the regular season opener before kickoff, but it will be "earned tears". It's an accomplishment born out of hard work, sacrifice, hitting bottom yet willing to bounce back and fight harder for what one wants....and not settling for anything less. It makes it all the sweeter, but now I'm rambling.
Anyways, I just wanted to share this with all of you. Thank you all for the support, I hope to do you proud once again. Until next time, "Rock and Roll!" and fare thee well.
