Everyone in Boston should know what this means.

Boston, Mass. -- The Hancock Tower's weather light blinks red through the blizzard on Dec. 26, 2010.

There aren’t many places I’d rather be during a blizzard than working the streets of my hometown with a camera.

Well, that, and the ski slopes.

999 Wins

1000.

That’s a pretty big number, especially when it comes to sports. For just about anything, it’s a milestone achievement, no matter how you put it.

I was hired Wednesday night by the Denver Post to cover the Nuggets as they faced off against the Celtics as head coach George Karl went for his 1,000th career coaching win. The assignment was simple — stay on the coach in the event that they win. Well, unfortunately for the Nuggets, and with star player Carmelo Anthony sidelined, a win wasn’t in the cards. It was pretty much a blowout, as the Celtics cruised to a 105-89 win.

Unfortunately, a coach not reaching a milestone isn’t exactly newsworthy, so my photos will be relegated to the back burner of history unless by some fluke, coach Karl never wins another game ever again.
