Only a few experiences have ever really given me butterflies as a photographer. Wednesday night, though, I was full of them.
I think I've yet to attend a drama-free baseball game in 2017. OK, that's admittedly an exaggeration, but it doesn't feel like it.
This is by far the most different Sunday's Best I've chosen to put together yet, but it's one I've wanted to take on for a while.
Hockey season has ended, the football team has reported, and the 'stairway to seven' is being built.
Arrival day at Saint Vincent College could be considered a holiday for the Steelers' roster (particularly those with checkbooks that support extravagant entrances and fun).
One of the questions I receive most often is, "what's in your camera bag?"
Before I covered the Penguins, I was a fan — especially of their goaltender.
Like most children, I fantasized of being an astronaut, ballplayer or dancing from goalline to goalline with a stick in my hands and a puck at my feet.
"Please no overtime, please no overtime." It was a chant that started in my head and probably spewed from my mouth a time or two until Patric Hornqvist punished his...
"We want the Cup!" That was the cheer heard several times in Game 2 when the Penguins jumped out to a 2-0 series lead.
The Penguins dropped Game 4 to the Predators in Music City, 4-1 to even the series at 2-2.
When life gives you a bad hockey game as a photographer, you try to do something different to spice up your images.
The flight of the catfish at PPG Paints Arena came close to saving Game 1, but no bottom-feeder showed up for Game 2 to slow the Penguins.
Overtime avoided. After a 3-0 first period, it looked nearly inevitable the Predators would take Game 1 late after roaring back to tie the game
One of the great traditions of the NHL Playoffs, aside from the greatest — the handshake line — of course, is the playoff beard.
A lot of times when I put a Sunday's Best out there, I'm talking about the things that went right for me on a given night. This is not one...
Silver linings were evident in the Penguins' 2-1 loss to the Senators in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final, even though that now means there's a Game 7.
Tomorrow after practice, the Penguins coverage quartet gets behind the driver's seat to take the DKPittsburghSports.com coverage back to Ottawa for Game 6.
I'm going to be honest. For the second time in as many series, I was sure that the Penguins would be eliminated by the team they were facing.
As a professional photographer, you control so much less than what's comfortable to acknowledge.
Forty-eight hours after Game 1, the Penguins were still the team not getting any bounces. They hit the post, they missed yawning cages. This time, though, they won 1-0.
In the middle of Game 1, I texted the Penguins coverage team and said that it felt like a preseason game and the only cheers in the arena were started...
From a media perspective, there are certain sides of 'sport' you hope to cover. Last night was one of those sides.
The Pirates struck out 17 times against the Dodgers in their 12-1 loss last night, and it wasn't the worst performance by a Pittsburgh team on May 8.
For a lot of the Penguins' 4-2 loss to the Capitals, it looked like they were headed for a couple days off while waiting on the inevitable seven-game finish to...
No Sidney Crosby, no Conor Sheary. No 66 percent of what served as one of hockey's best lines for the latter part of the season. No problem.
