    While usually I like these, I’m going to mention that I’m disappointed you missed the picture of the guy sitting field level for the first half in front of section 127 – Seba. I’m guessing he was there to see Gaddis pass him in games played but it was good to see him take pictures with some of the fans nearby at halftime.

  2. “Clark swings and misses the leaping Aaronson.” What a great capture! Had no idea how much height he got on that.

    • Thank you, the look on Clark’s face after this shoot was funny. He looks back and it looked like he was thinking “How the hell did I miss Him!”.

  3. I saw Seba in the concourse before the match. Just standing by the wall with some friends. I just shook his hand and said great to see you. He smiled and said thanks and have a great night. Should have taken a selfie!… great pics as usual Paul!

  4. Would love it if a pro who knows what he or she is doing were to take a careful shot of “Ring of Honor: Sebastian Le Toux”
