Not that I have lens envy or anything, but I know when somebody else has got me beat on videos. There wasn’t much my puny digital camera could do up against the masterblaster, $5,000, Steven-Spielberg-unit carried by Ben Talbott of Birdseye Sports.
And, since my batteries ran out when getting videos absolutely mattered most, in OT I didn’t have anything good worth looking at anyway. Big Ben had the whole package.
So, if you weren’t there, just sit back and watch his highlight reel of this classic SWC encounter at Arum Field on Friday night.
It runs about 14 minutes long, so dim the lights, grab a box of popcorn and hit the “enlarge” button on your browser. It’s worth the peek.
By the way, unless something catastrophic happens in the SWC, it looks like this win will pretty much guarantee Pomperaug a spot in the league title game. If Pomperaug, Stratford and Masuk win out, they’ll end tied at 8-1. In that case, all head-to-heads are thrown away and it goes by CIAC playoff points.
Crazy, but true. You can call your local SWC representative to complain.
