Cleveland Browns Training Camp

NFL: Cleveland Browns-Training Camp

 

August is finally here, and that means one thing! Football season. With the NFL kicking off training camp last week, competition is among us. Players are battling for a starting spot and the heat is on in Cleveland. Rookie quarterback Jonny Manziel is battling with a Cleveland local Brian Hoyer for the starting spot.

My first preseason game is this weekend- Buffalo Bills vs New York Giants at Pro Football Hall of Fame. I have around 30 NFL games on the schedule this year, which is going to make for a fun season.

Jimmie Johnson first career win at Michigan

NASCAR: Quicken Loans 400-Practice

The NASCAR circuit made it’s first stop in the Irish Hills of Michigan, where for the past few years Ford cars have been dominating, but the last five races Hendrick Motorsports has been on fire. It was also a very busy weekend for me. I was doing double duty, covering NASCAR 65 miles away from my house and the Toledo Mud Hens. Covering 8+ hours of nascar then covering 4+ hours of baseball is extremely exhausting, but it made for a great work weekend which I am very thankful for.

2014 Indianapolis 500

IndyCar: Indianapolis 500

The 2014 Indianapolis 500 is my fifth time covering The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. The history behind the Indianapolis Speedway is like no other track in the country. The first race at the track was in 1911 and this was the 98th running of the 500.

Be able to be one of the 250,000 spectators to be part of the race on Memorial Day Weekend is very special. Let’s get on with the photos.

Johnny Football in Cleveland

NFL: Cleveland Browns-OTA

Johnny Football is the only freshman to win the Heisman Trophy and the only player in NCAA history to have 5,000 total yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season and set the SEC record with 5,116 yards of total offense. NFL analysis projected him to be the first quarterback picked in the 2014 NFL draft, but he fell to the 22nd pick being drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

I personally like Manziel’s type of play, it’s something different the NFL hasn’t seen. With this being such a big story in the media I got the opportunity to spend 25 minutes at Browns OTA to knock off as many photos as I could to be used for articles over the next few months.

NASCAR: 5-Hour Energy 400

I am slowly working towards getting the opportunity to visit ever NASCAR track and Kansas Speedway has been on the list for a long time. Everyone had negative things to say about the track but I was very impressed. There was no traffic entering or exiting the track, the garages were nicely lit and Kansas makes for some awesome sunsets!

Carl Edwards Backflips into Bristol

NASCAR: Food City 500

 

Bristol Motor Speedway is known as the fastest half mile on the NASCAR Circuit. It’s one of my favorite tracks, it’s small, loud and holds 160,000 people. Unlike most NASCAR tracks the teams work in a garage area, but at Bristol their cars are line up along pit lane working out in the open. After a few rain delays they finally raced at night, which it my favorite place to night race. Enjoy the photos.

AW4_9406

With 32 days until Toledo Mud Hens Opening day, sports turf manager Jake Tyler doesn’t have much time to get the grass perfectly mowed and the dirt soft. So Jake, had to figure out a way to melt all of the snow in the infield so he can get to work. So why not cover the infield with the tarp and blow hot air into the tarp to melt all of the snow.

With the current air temperature being 12 degrees and inside of the tarp being 72 degrees, which caused the snow to melt 4 inches in just 3 hours. ┬áIt’s something you just don’t see to often which made for some interesting pictures.
