Upset City!

Oklahoma State players James Anderson and Nick Sidorakis celebrate with fans following a victory over No. 1 Kansas on Saturday.

Yesterday, OSU announced a $1 billion fundraising campaign that they are more than halfway to achieving.

This evening, OSU had it’s biggest upset victory in decades.

It’s good to be a Cowboy.

That was cheesy, but c’mon, this is exciting!

I was nervous in the last couple minutes.

First, because Kansas was making a worrisome comeback.

Second, because I knew that when the final seconds expired, thousands of crazy 20-somethings would be charging in my direction.

They did. It was uncomfortable.

And the worst thing possible happened. No, I didn’t get trampled. I did, however, spin my shutter wheel to the left, causing every picture in this historic victory celebration to be overexposed by at least a stop and a half. In addition, my lens hood was hit, causing it to put big, ugly, adjacent black lines on all the photos.

Ugh. Sick feeling.

It was mostly recoverable. The picture above is one of the ones that happened to.

I’ve written more than usual I think, so I’ll stop.

Go Pokes!

P.S. Instead of having Adam’s extras, I’ll link this slideshow on the O’Colly site.
