Last night South Gwinnett played my first high school, Centennial, during the second round of the state tournament. Apparently Centennial was heavily favored, but South hung in and won after 2 overtimes.
Normally overtime, or close games in general make me nervous because I have to make a decision about which story I am going to tell: one team winning or the other team losing? Based on that I have to set up my lights to a particular side and get situated before the final buzzer and then hope I’m in the right position to get the correct shot.
I don’t mind close games that much when I’m only shooting one of the teams. I shoot whatever happens to them. At the end of regulation I got the feeling the fans were going to rush the court if they won, so I was pretty lucky to be able to get off a handful of frames of the guy who made the basket before my view was obscured by fans and I had to run in with my wide to get general madness shots.
