20110618 Rapids Soccer Game, a set on Flickr.
Today I spent about 2 hours working on a side project trying to put together a do-it-yourself steadicam for my DSLR camera. The project is pretty close and as soon as I get a first prototype together I’ll be posting a demo video.
Sammy had a baseball game today and it was the first game they won. Sam had a nice hit that was a single but they overthrew first and he was off for second. Instead of getting it into the catcher they threw the ball to second and again bobbled it although not as far as the one to first. You get the picture—he made it all the way to home using this technique. The umpire ended up putting him back at second saying the ball had gone out of bounds and hence he was limited to one extra base. He pitched the last inning and had 3 strike outs. His pitching is really improving with each game.
Tonight we went to the Colorado Rapids soccer game against the LA Galaxy. They lost 3 to 1 (Sam even now, the next day, insists it was 2 to 1 since it was clear from the replay that the first goal was crossed once it had already gone out of bounds), but it was fun to watch. Also, Beckham and Donovan were both out so there was a little disappointment there. All in all a pretty good day.
