Wyoming Soccer Tournament Day 2: Let it rain

Today was pretty much identical to Thursday. Rain. Rain. Rain. It never stopped. The only difference for me was a nifty pair of waterproof boots ($25 at Wal Mart) that kept my feet dry. Other than that I got soaked again. This despite a rain coat I wore over my winter jacket. I guess when it rains so hard for so long, there’s not much you can wear to keep you completely dry. I got used to the whole being wet deal and just rolled with it. Felt like I got better pictures today although the teams I shot didn’t fair very well. All the Cheyenne teams are out of contention for state titles meaning the only title games I’ll be shooting on Saturday will be for our sister paper in Laramie.
