New to SHOE this season will be a “weekend in photos” post. Both Kyle and myself are credentialed to shoot Bears games in different areas of Giant Center. And as you might of imagined, we take a lot of pics. So many in fact that they can’t all fit into our game recaps. So instead of keeping these pictures on our cutting room floor, we’ll post the most notable ones in this weekly segment.
This week, I supply all of the snapshots, and they come from the Bears home opener on Saturday night. Take a look and make sure to click on the pics to enlarge them.
