Better Than a Sharp Stick in the Eye...

...but not by much!

I covered the state high school wrestling finals yesterday. Before the finals they stage the third and fifth place matches. I brought my still camera and snapped off a few shots of that. Fortunately, my paying job did not depend on my ability to shoot the stills. The arena was too dark for me to get most of the action shots in focus. I also struggled to frame the shots well. But I think it helped me shoot the video better. I'll know that for sure when I load it into my computer later.

The kid who had his opponent's fingers in his eyes went on to dominate his match and managed to see the medal he won.
