Being the Bear: Our First Mercer University Football Game

Last year Mercer University revived its football team, and for the first time since their return, Michelle and I were able to make it down for a home game. The McAfee School of Theology held a tailgate party at the game, so we went with several faculty and staff to show our support.

When we decided to go, I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out the a6000 with the Sony 70-200 FE lens. So, I extended my rental from the past week’s DragonCon and had a blast with it. Unfortunately, the Bears didn’t win, but they showed a lot of heart against Furman.

I was impressed by the pressure of Mercer’s defense.

After a punt. I just thought this shot demonstrated the great action freeze of the a6000 and the depth of field of the 70-200.
