View Full Version : heywoode's photos from Pacers-Blazers 03/18/09

In short, this game sucked. We had good seats, but the Pacers looked out of it from the very beginning, and that is how the game played out. It was astounding to me that they made it back to only losing by ten points. They were outplayed far worse than the score would indicate. It was nice to get to hang with Dukie and Mrs. Dukie for most of the second half, but that was the only bright spot aside from the Pacemates!

Apologies for the photos not being in chronological order, but my camera numbers frames to four digits, so every 10,000 frames the numbers turn over and start back at 0001. I'm way too lazy to move the order of them around so that they flow with the game. Deal with it!




Dude, does that hurt?


"Okay everybody, move in closer and surround him with love!"


"WHY do I keep turning the ball over?"


Fighting through the defense for...


...a nice little bunny of a hook.


Not gonna happen.


This either.


"Did my nacho fart smell THAT bad?"


Sorry Mark, I had to sniper you. At least I didn't come down and bother you!


Now THAT is trying to get the crowd into it!




I sure liked Hibby last night...I wish he would play about 35 minutes a game.


Is it me, or is that Portland guy fouling his teammate?!


If he woulda said, "Oooh yeah! Grab my balls....YEAH!...that feels great!", I'm guessing he would've had a much easier time maintaining possession...


Getting ready to play SlapJack!


Enter Mr. Oden...


Love the form, not sure about the haircut yet.


This play was AWESOME. The ball was going out on Indiana, and it was over as far as 90% of the players on the court were concerned. McBob dove after it, Greggy stood guard to make sure he didn't make a sweet desperation pass back in to a teammate (even though they had all started taking off the other way) and he BARELY gets a hand on it, flings it back in bounds. It goes off of Greggy's calf back out of bounds.....PACER BALL!

Great play, McBob!


Bird is thinking about rolling and aerating his yard, getting early spring grass seed down, and changing the oil in his pickup. The Simons are wondering how much money they are losing PER SECOND.



The guy in the gold shirt helping him up is a photographer. He jumped up, helped him up, and then ran and got a bunch of towels to clean up the beer that got spilled after helping the cameraman up too. By the time the Conseco worker got over there, he had helped up two people, cleaned up the mess, gone up and gotten the fan another beer, sat back down and shot ten more frames. He was HUSTLING.


Foster streaked down the lane, got the inlet pass, and actually laid it in, UNDER CONTROL. We were shocked. I expected him to be flailing wildly, miff catching the pass, throw the ball up and have it hit the underside of the rim, bounce back down hitting him in the face, and then fall out of bounds and injure his back.





Pretty entertaining Grease number...


This isn't happening either. Some nights our guards can get to the hoop and get the ball to the rim despite the best attempts at defense by the other team. Not last night. Every single player for Portland had a blocked shot, I think. It sure seemed that way.

These pictures show just how great Rush's defense is.

Heywoode, thanks. I've seen proof here that Hibbert actually can get both feet off the round at the same time.

These pictures are pretty good. But just imagine what you could do if you had a 75-300mm f4-5.6 lens.

heywoode got so mad because I was able to get Oden's monster dunk. I'll post those along with tonight's photos tomorrow.

I didn't get it because I was looking at you while I was talking to you. You made me miss a bunch of shots, butthole!

Dude, don't look at Duke. <i>Never</i> look at Duke.

Now, if you'd said you were looking at dustpan (Ms. Dukie), I'd understand...

Yeah, not anymore now that everyone thinks that you are a freak.

03-21-2009, 01:34 AM
no, not anymore since I figured out that you are going all "Single White Female" on me...psycho.

And that photo of Oden sucks!

Better than what you had to show...where's yours? Oh...wait...

03-21-2009, 02:15 AM
I'd rather have nothing than have that!

03-21-2009, 04:40 AM
You guys ever 'crop' your photos? Something to google there.

Well, you said I was d*ck, 'woode.

Cropping takes too long.

03-21-2009, 11:53 AM
I always crop. That is why my photos actually look GOOD. I take the time to make sure they look good, and that's why I don't have photos posted the same night as the game!

When I read this:

If he woulda said, "Oooh yeah! Grab my balls....YEAH!...that feels great!", I'm guessing he would've had a much easier time maintaining possession...

I swear to god it was the first time I actually cried while laughing at an Internet post. My wife was across the room and said, "what the hell is going on?"

Funny, funny, funny!

I aim to please...in more ways than one.

It doesn't seem like you are putting in a really good effort to get Duke to not SWF you, not with comments like that.

BTW, the Bird/Simon photo - that's Morway sitting next to Simon, the holy trinity in action being disgusted by their team. ;) At least it got better vs Dallas...well apart from the TJ/JJ thing.

03-21-2009, 11:34 PM
Damn, you're right, Seth. Thanks for the tip. For the record, that last statement of mine applies to everyone EXCEPT dukie...whew, that was close!

Thanks for the clarification on Morway. Now that you mention it, it is obvious, but I didn't note it when I posted and captioned.
