03.29.13 media day

Denise working the locker room. On the floor is a seven-footer who took up nearly half the space.

03.28.13 LL Cool J

One thing I have struggled with over the past five years of doing this blog is should I feature my best photography of the day or the most interesting subject. Well, on a day when you meet LL Cool J, it's the best subject. These pictures were probably better from a photographic standpoint.

03.27.13 practice day in L.A.

The team was very relaxed during practice. Here's a whole gallery of hoopin', dunkin' and such.

03.26.13 LA Live!

Checked into our super sweet hotel in the LA Live! entertainment district in downtown LA. The best thing about this places is that it is directly across from the Staples Center.

Checking out our dining options in the Minneapolis airport. We found a great place where Fernando had the best hamburger of his life. It was a mixture of prime rib and ground sirloin.

03.16.13 shopping

I'm going to be covering the Shockers in the NCAA tournament in a few days so I went shopping to pick up a few things. I was looking for some clothes and toiletries and ended up buying a workout outfit, new shoes and a basketball. I need to remember that I'm shooting the game and not playing in it.

03.12.13 my annual trek to Emporia

Joanna doing her thing and cracking 'em up at the All-State banquet.

03.11.12 shooting all-metro basketball

My favorite test model is back at it. Wow, we need to paint that wall. Those squiggles are a little distracting.

03.08.13 iPad

Kids these days and their fancy toys. The technology I used when I was her age was my tape recorder to record my favorite songs on the radio.

03.07.12 state tournament

There is crying in basketball. In fact, the entire squad was all kinds of torn up after their girls lost in the quarterfinals at state. I've never seen anything quite like it.

Haley said yes. She was cheering on her team at the state tournament and the suitor is an unofficial cheerleader.

03.05.13 Eight is great!

The birthday girl and her lime sherbet cone. I may or may not have helped her finish it.

03.02.13 our hairy hoarder

Mara loves to play with my hair elastics. She leaps for them in the air and carries around the house. We saw her slide one under the couch and desperately try to retrieve it and that's when we totally busted her - 30 bands, four mice and one weird foam ball.
