Everyone loves a good photo of their son or daughter from the big game. With the cost of professional level digital photography equipment dipping into consumer territory, its easier than ever to make that photo. Therein lies the problem.
Last Friday, I covered the first in state Columbine High School football game against Thomas Jefferson. In all the years I have covered high school football, I have only been asked to produce a credential a handful of times. Usually I would be asked at the front gate of the stadium and that would be it. However, this year was a surprise. A woman who I believe to be the athletics director for TJ, (my fault for not remembering her name) actually asked me for my press credentials while I was working on the sidelines.
