WeeFuse’s Cavalcade of Football Pictures
I was cruising around iPhoto today (for entirely non-football related reasons) and while doing so it occurred to me that there might be some interest in football-related photos I have taken, so I’m going to share a few with you now. If these receive a warm (warmish?) reception it might just inspire me to digitize a big stack of football-related photos that are languishing in my closet. said stack includes photos from, among other things, the 1999 Women’s World Cup, WeeFuse during his playing days, WeeFuse during his coaching days, etc.. Any-way, no doubt you’ve seen some of these before, but there are plenty you haven’t seen. I’ll do my best to identify each of them. Please also be advised that these photographs vary widely in quality- from those taken with a very nice digital camera, to those taken with a cellphone, to those taken with disposable cameras and then scanned onto my computer!
