Huskies shock Cardinal

The number 8 ranked Stanford Cardinal visited the Washington Huskies for an ESPN Thursday night game in Seattle and got a rude wakeup call from the home team getting upset 17-13 in front of almost 56,000 at CenturyLink Field. The much improved Huskies defense set the tone for the game playing very physical and knocking the Cardinal around. The Offense kept it close and had two long scoring plays that were the difference. The crowd dressed all in black for the game stormed the field in celebration after the upset.

NFL Draft

I had a great opportunity to head to New York City last week and take part in some pre-draft activities. It was a lot of fun. As you know, the first pick of the draft this year was Andrew Luck out of Stanford to the Indianapolis Colts. Here’s a shot I made of him in 2010 when they played the Huskies.

It has been a great experience to shoot for Lindy’s for the past several years.
