Adventures of the Folding Bike: Pittsburgh

In the second installment, I take you to Pittsburgh.  I'm getting better at mounting the camera for more stable shots.  In some of the clips, the camera is mounted to the back of the frame, so you can see the whole bike.  Enjoy!

Adventures of the Folding Bike: London

While I was in London, I bought a cheap folding bike to get around.  I attached a GoPro camera to myself and to the bike and shot some video around town.    Some of the shots look like I'm much closer  to a bus or a canal than I really am, a side effect of the wide angle lens.  The video is also pretty shaky.  I'm still learning how to best mount the camera.

I Didn't Write the Book on Sports Television...

... but my picture is on the cover.

This popped up recently.  It's a new college textbook entitled "Sports on Television: The How and Why Behind What You See".  The picture on the cover was taken in the control room of our Sunday Night Football truck.  I have no idea who took the picture or when it was taken, but I'm sitting there at the switcher.  At a cost of $120 for the hardcover, I don't think I'll be grabbing a copy anytime soon.
