Why where you stand means everything:
I can sympathize with that actually. To an extent.
When I was in high school, I was on both newspaper and yearbook. I was a crappy writer (mainly out of laziness) but I was probably the best sports photographer on staff and was pretty good in the layout/design department as well.
My favorite thing was shooting football games. Lots of action, lots of fun, and the element of danger that at any moment a WR could run you over if you didn't watch yourself.
Thankfully that never happened!
However, one time when I was shooting a varsity game an incomplete pass one-hopped the ground and caught me square in the nuts.
Yea, it hurt.
Good times, eh?
