Brush With Greatness
Since I'm still not working (grrrr) I have a good, long day to explore and hang out and wish I had an internet connection.
Today, I went to to the U.S. Men's Basketball press conference, and it was pretty much a zoo. They introduced the players and then positioned them in various places around the auditorium, so journalists could do one-on-one (ok small group) interviews. I did something I'm really not supposed to do, as a journalist, and that is take fan-girl pictures. But this is the Olympics, and if you don't get in anyone's way, they really don't care so much.
But it comes down to this: My arms aren't long enough to get a photo of Kobe Bryant (above). I was able to get the back of Carmelo Anthony's head, I got a Where's Waldo-esque photo of Chris Bosch and I did one of those silly photos that puts me in the same shot as Dwyane Wade.
Next thing you know, I'll be in his Fave 5.
