Behold: Jobing.com Arena

Welcome to the spacious interior of Glendale, Arizona's Jobing.com Arena, one of my favorite buildings in the National Hockey League to comfortably work in. There are extremely tight quarters in some of the league's press boxes - I feel I'm a sneeze away from getting whistled for elbowing in St. Lou... Read More

Good morning, Phoenix

Good morning from the hotel in Phoenix, where the Kings will be holding meetings and having meals throughout the day instead of traveling to Glendale for a morning skate. I have been told that it has been several years since the team has stayed at this hotel; during last year’s Western Conferenc... Read More

Good morning, Vancouver

Depictions of the Pacific Northwest don't get much more accurate than this photo. The Bayshore West Marina and its expensive boats sit in the foreground of a narrow inlet. The entrance to Stanley Park, guarded by tall evergreen trees, lies shrouded by a veil of fog under drizzly skies. To the left, ... Read More

Behold: Scotiabank Saddledome

Welcome to the Olympic Canadian Airlines Pengrowth Scotiabank Saddledome, home of the Calgary Flames since 1983. The second picture doesn't adequately depict the size of this 19,289-seat facility, which has some of the highest nosebleed seats I've ever seen at an indoor sporting event. I assume that...

Good morning, Calgary

After being greeted in Calgary last night by four degree weather upon exiting the plane, it has risen to a robust 18 degrees amidst some light snow that has continued to fall downtown. Snow doesn't necessarily photograph well - just take my word for it. Weather can change rapidly in this city - I've... Read More

Edmonton, Alberta is at 53°34′N latitude, placing it roughly at the same distance from the equator as Manchester, England and Hamburg, Germany. It's a grey morning in Alberta's capital, and the team is scheduled to hit the ice at Rexall P... Read More

Behold: United Center

What better of a place is there to celebrate Michael Jordan's 50th birthday than the United Center? In the second photo, to the upper right are the banners depicting the Blackhawks' Stanley Cups of 1934, 1938, 1961 and 2010. To the upper left are the Bulls' NBA Championship banners of 1991, 1992, 19... Read More

Good morning, Chicago

It's because of shots like this one that I am reminded why I did not enter into a career in photography. Of course, the John Hancock Center and yet another water streaked window didn't exactly play into this blog's favor on a chilly February morning. We're on the Magnificent Mile, several blocks off...
