College football: Penn State defeats Temple 24-13
September 23, 2012 by Chris Dunn
Shot my second Penn State game of the season yesterday. It’s also now exactly a year to the day that I got knocked over by two high school football players, couldn’t walk for about 10 minutes and suffered an impact fracture at the top of my tibia — all of which is relevant because shooting football even a year later can be a little painful.
But it was one of my better games to shoot. Take that, knee.

State students held a “Blue Out” in support of child abuse victims, during the game against Temple.
It also rained a bit. Nothing dramatic — just a steady drizzle — so when the sun came out and finally created enough contrast for the water droplets to show up in-camera, I seized it:

I guess I’d be angry, too, if I were getting tackled:

It’s almost ballet-like, the way it seems as if Rumer is lifting Zordich. Almost:

And finally, a “whaaa–?” moment from QB1 and coach:
