|20 weeks 3 days ago||Don't wear the jersey||
I have been in the press box many times as a camera op. Wear a Michigan polo. Something nice. What does the guy you might be working for wear? I think he will lead you in the right direction. I am a Michigan fan, and when I work for ESPN, abc, Btn. I can't wear my Michigan gear.. I am still a fan, I just cheer quietly. And do my job. good luck, it's up to you on how serious you take it. I hope it goes well.

|1 year 5 weeks ago||Was waiting||
But now that jimmy is home will send it this week. I hope a lot of people waited. To send some sort of message. I hate the pay for the right to buy tickets. But we don't have a choice if you want the tickets. Great job by JMFH! Jimmy is home...time to get to work! Go blue!
|1 year 11 weeks ago||I worked the game||
I ran hand held camera under the pistons basket. It was a crazy night. I got locked out of the palace for 45 min after the game was done. They locked down the loading dock and the locker room area. The police looked at all the camera angles in the truck. There was 3 shows that night. The pistons broadcast, Indiana, and espn. At least 25 camera angles with the 3 shows. We could not strike the show until the police were done. I think we got off of work after 2:00 am. It was crazy. I can't believe it's been 10 years. We are setting up for the pistons game tonight. And I am running the same camera for FSD. It's all we are talking about here.

Jim brandstatter on play by play and some one join him as color. Former player maybe.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||#2||
Walter smith! Captain and a solid wr. Great on special teams. He would destroy people on kickoffs. One of my favorite Michigan players, along with Tripp.
|2 years 1 week ago||I worked||
The game for espn. Great game. It was great watching the sad spartan fans walk by. I had the shot of nicks parents going crazy! Great night !
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Just talked to Dan||
Just talked to Dan Dickerson in the tiger both at winter fest. He said it would be great, but he has tigers. So it won't be him.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Sat with Seth at the northwestern game||
And talked about the blog. I have donated before. But after talking to Seth. And finding out that this is his full time gig. Brian and Seth put a lot of work into the blog along with all the other guys. I love the blog, so when I got home from Chicago. I set it up on my pay pal, to give $5 a month. Easy, I do that for Adam carolla's pod cast too. If you love the product, give a little. Easy set up. And every month you see it in your statement.

Craziest- pistons and pacers brawl at the palace. I was on the court running a hand held camera for the pistons broadcast. Pushed by a pistons assistant coach and told to get the hell out of here. I was in the area of the pistons bench at the time. Artest and Ben Wallace were in the stands at the time going at it. That was the crazy night!
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Hoke of the jungle||
I laughed when I shot this ace. i knew you would make it a gift! Hoke was trying to get the starting defense to the right place to go on to the field after the kick off. I am surprised you didn't get mattison after the long pass play on Akron's final drive. I have a quick shot of him. Saying you got to be kidding me!!
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Nice||
Thanks for the info. It's cool to hear what it is like to be a recruit. Also good to hear Michigan is doing it the right way. Keep the stories coming!
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Jordan cam||
I have worked a game, that I was michael Jordan cam. It was when Jordan came back and played for Washington. A preseason game in Grand Rapids against the pistons. Where ever Jordan goes you shoot him. For network shows this is common for mic'ed up players. You shot that person trying to get good sound. But for college football, I don't think this happens very often. Nba finals yes, and it's Kobe, lebron, or Jordan. It has to be a zoo at Texas a&m, media wise right now. So it makes sense for CBS to do this. I hope this story turns out ok. But it feels like it is heading in a bad direction. If this does not become a 30/30, I don't know what will.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Ace you will be happy to||
Know Btn will do the same thing for the Akron game. Showing the run out, band ect. It's their thing. Trying to show the college sites and sounds before kickoff.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Your welcome ace||
The banner shot was mine, along with Gallon's td. The Reynolds catch, and the hoke ninja point. I ran the low end zone camera in the student section. It's very cool to see these shots on the blog. Good job!
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Who is going to get 98||
I don't like it. It's great to honor them, but it should be shown in the stadium some where. In front of the suites? Desmond is "21" Tripp is "3" gallon should be "10". This is how you remember players, I still talk to my cousins about our favorite players. Going by the numbers, I love woodson#2 but then we name the other players that wore #2 Walter smith, Vincent smith, that we love. Who is going to be old 98?
|2 years 23 weeks ago||I was interning for Michigan replay||
I was sitting in a channel 2 truck with a feed for the tv truck to the beta deck that we used to record the game.

Grew up west side of the state (Hamilton)
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Was told||
By a friend that works in tv with me that he has been hired already for game day... In Ann Arbor. So yes they will be here. Just waiting for my call to work the game... Maybe, or go to the game as a fan! Can't wait!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I don't know?||
I have seen your post or comments, and thought cool another Tripp fan. I don't comment that often, but I read most of the post.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Does any one||
Know if the players get a cut $ of the sales of these jerseys? They should. And glen rice should get a cut from the throw back jerseys that Tiedman and formby vintage athletic co. made. They are cool. I might get one, but I hope the players get a cut.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Thank you||
Thanks for the info!
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Away tickets?||
Has any one got their tickets for the games at northwestern and penn st.?
|2 years 28 weeks ago||I saw||
Both of them last night as I left the game. I work about 50 or so games a year for fox sports Detroit or the visit broadcast. And I would see them both every game. I have seen them on the back streets where it is dark. So I am not surprised that this happened. So sad.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Was for it||
And love it! The press box is great! Working for espn/abc/Btn, the new press box is the best. So much more room. The camera angles are not as good as before, but not bad. Love working there and going as a fan when I am not working. Love working at crisler too. Great for tv
