Hi Gang: It’s 2:00 AM Chicago time (so 3:00 am for me, whose internal clock is on East Coast time), and I just got back to my hotel room after a sideline shoot of the BIG Chicago Bears win over the Green Bay Packers.

RC sent me the screen cap above of the ESPN TV broadcast last night as I wound up on the air a couple of times. My cell phone kept going off with texts from friends saying “I just saw you on TV.’ I just saw you again!” I was cracking up!

The highlight of the game was getting to shoot the 2nd half with my buddy, and Chicago Bears Chairman Mike McCaskey. He’s a terrific photographer, and he’s shot both college and pro sports but he rarely gets to shoot his own team, but last night he hung out with me shooting on the sidelines and we had a ball (Mike was shooting a 200-400mm f/4, and I was using my 300 f/2.8).

It’s really late, and I’ve got a very early flight (I’m meeting with Adobe’s Lightroom engineering team all day tomorrow, and I’m carrying all your wish list stuff, fix it stuff, and lots of special requests with me to the team, so you guys will be well represented).

Well, I’ve gotta hit the sack. Sorry I don’t have any photos for you guys, but even I haven’t had a chance to look at them myself. Maybe later in the week, but in the meantime, I’ll just have to revel in the fact that the Bears are 3-0, they beat a really tough team, and they’re now the only undefeated team in the NFC.

Thanks to Mike and Nancy for a Monday I won’t soon forget (and a special thanks to Nancy for letting Mike and I have a Lightroom party after the game). Man, what a way to spend a Monday!!!! :-) GO BEARS!!!!
