Bremen junior football 2006
The 2006 Bremen junior football season ended today with a brilliant and heroic loss by Bremen to the visiting Rochester Zebras. The mighty prepubescent Lions came out with a roar, decisively winning the coin toss and cleverly electing to receive. The chastened Zebras fell back on such desperate and dubiously-legal techniques as "blocking" and "kicking" to scratch out a meager nine points—points that went coldly unanswered by the stoic Lions. The Lions' every-man-for-himself offense left the Zebras confused and dejected, but Rochester nevertheless took the win in the spirit of good sportsmanship.
The individual pictures I've uploaded as a gallery are what I think are the best ones in each set. Click an image or its "full res" link to view or download the full-resolution (3400 x 2300) image.
I have now made full photo sets available for the games. Each of these contains 90 or more photos (I've left out the worst ones). The sets are zipped up into a single ZIP file for each game and offered in two sizes. The sets with 800 x 533 pixel photos are around 15 megabytes, and sets with the full-size 3400 x 2300 photos are around 150 megabytes. If you have a slow connection (dial-up), don't bother trying to download the full-size photo sets. It will take hours. With a broadband connection (cable modem or DSL), it will take several minutes.
Once you've downloaded the ZIP file to your hard drive
If you are using Windows XP, you can right click the ZIP file wherever you have downloaded it to your machine and select "Extract All...." Follow the wizard instructions to unzip the file. Then you can browse the photos by double-clicking one and paging thru them with the arrow keys.
If you are not using Windows XP, you will need to use a separate unzipping tool, such as WinZip.
I have made CD-ROMs of all the games available to the league and coaches (not zipped). Check with Sherry Simmons.
If you would like a T-shirt or mug (or whatever) of a specific photo, please e-mail me with the image name and I can arrange it.
The easiest way to get a print is to go to the NEW GALLERIES ON FOTKI, select any photo, and order a print. However, please feel free to download the hi res version and take it to a print shop and have it printed at whatever size you like. To take photos to a print shop, you can burn the photos you want to a CD-ROM or put them on a USB flash drive to take to CVS, Meijer, etc. You can even e-mail the image online to Office Max or Kinko's and pick up the print at the store.
