Nothing special really, but it was my first time seeing the Chiefs in person. We were in the corner even with the back of the endzone, way up in the nether regions of the 2nd row from the top of the stadium for most of the game (moved closer just before the Webb TD). I was concerned about bringing a DSLR camera with a kind of big lens, but the security guy didn't even give it a second glance.

Jared Allen, QBOTF?

Great pictures, especially considdering the unforgiving light they are taken in. What type of lens did you use?

Thanks guys

I heard different stories at the game and over on the jetnation board... some said the NE/NYG game wiped 'em out, some said there was some incident at that game on an escalator that made them not serve beer at the KC game, and some said they don't serve beer at the 8pm games and after it got flexed to 4 they just said screw it.

The lens was a Zuiko 40-150mm f/3.5-4.5. I think all the action pictures were taken at 150mm f/4.5. The camera has no image stabilization and I was shivering from freezing my nuts off, I was suprised more didn't come out blurry

Sippio laid a guy out on a punt return, too. It was a nice block that was slightly meaningless to the outcome of the play, but it was fun to see him decleat the guy.
