Running Scared?

So the last time I photographed anything from Martha Coakley’s U.S. Senate campaign, it was pretty much the last time she was out in public. Of course, when I last covered the campaign, Coakley was well on her way to winning the Democratic primary in a landslide. Since then? Well, she basically dropped off the face of the earth and didn’t make an appearance until last week.

Her rival, Scott Brown, has since closed the gap and is leading in several polls. I caught up with the Coakley campaign last night during a bunch of last-minute push events in anticipation of Tuesday’s election.

1.17.2010 — REVERE, Mass. — U.S. Senate candidate Martha Coakley stops to chat with Monica Michalides of Tewksbury and her dog, Momo, at a rally led by local Democrats at the American Legion Hall on Jan. 17, 2010.

1.17.2010 — REVERE, Mass. — U.S. Senate candidate Martha Coakley, flanked by congressman Ed Markey, waits for her introduction at a rally led by local Democrats at the American Legion Hall on Jan. 17, 2010.

Politics and an Ed Markey battle cry is apparently no match for the video game being played by that kid on stage behind Coakley.

BU @ BC Women’s Hoops

Nothing like a cross-town rivalry to get the blood pumping. Unless it’s a women’s basketball game between BU and BC. Hockey’s the real rivalry between these two Commonwealth Avenue, as most people in the area are aware — this women’s basketball game wasn’t supposed to be much of a matchup on paper for the heavily favored BC.

BC ended up winning the game, though BU did keep things interesting with their 3-point shooting, which unfortunately doesn’t exactly translate to exciting action pictures.

Anyway, here’s some photos from the game:

Green Energy

Finally got around to photographing my first pro basketball, making my way over to the TD Garden for the Herald. The Celtics took on the Raptors, playing some sloppy, physical ball on their way to a 103-96 victory over their Canadian opponents.

Here’s some pics from the game, and a little PhotoShelter flash gallery.
