This week 8-6-18

We completed a string of covering over 20 games starting in May and concluding with last weekend. From here on out beginning August 18, and until October 21 we’ll be covering the Earthquakes, with possibly a few other games thrown in-between.  Just two local items of note.

From the San Francisco Examiner.

Could MLS add another team to Bay Area?

Quakesfan.com made the trip to Dallas along with a few other friends of the gang.  The worst team in the west beats the one at the top of the table.

Something very unique and different – the fans and supporters of the game and the view from the stands.

South Africa vs Ireland – the penultimate match of the Friday session.  After 10 hours on the pitch with a break in the stands decided to enjoy the game with my buddy Kirk (know him from the SF City Northsiders crew) in the stands.

South Africa v Ireland from the stands - I was inspired by a shot from the Chronicle taken from the seats at a Warriors basketball game. Shift was done and wanted to enjoy but can't let go of the camera. Fueled by the spot story #rugby #attpark #rwc7s

South African fans travel very well to support the Blitzboks (Rugby 7s national team) and the Springboks.  The team is expected to contend for titles in the various rugby disciplines (union, league, and sevens).

Keeping things light.  The New Zealand women were dominant in this match as they cruised to a 57-0 win over the Mexico women 7s.  The Ferns were the defending Olympic rugby champions and eventually duplicated their success by winning the World Cup.

Probably one of the exciting matches from the Friday session.  Kenya was leading up towards the second half only to have Scotland come back for a 31-26 win

We have been posting select shots on Instagram, both at the regular sports site at 3pointsport and also at the other general showcase site theprojectfc and there has been a mix of material ranging from the men and women’s tournament to the supporters of the game.  Most of the scenes were similar to the recent soccer World Cup in Russia but more festive.

The feed also goes to the photo host so check it out.

I'm going to be the first to admit @drive_x_strike takes better shots (and give him a follow) but surprised this turned out good. Argentina v Canada Friday session #attpark #rwc7s #rugby can very well be NFL or Aussie rules. My take.

Argentina v Canada


More to come.
