Photos: Frozen Fenway Hosts Providence, Merrimack, Boston College and Notre Dame.
We haven’t had enough excitement at Fenway Park over the past several months, so why not throw in some hockey on top of it all?
This weekend kicked off Frozen Fenway 2014, which features high school and college hockey games, a Monster Sled tubing course, and opportunities for fans to skate out on the rink.
On Saturday, the stadium was the backdrop to two big games: Providence College vs. Merrimack College and Boston College vs. the University of Notre Dame. It was a nice change of pace and scenery, and I was excited to shoot something different around here.
I quickly realized that I’ve somehow made it this long having never shot hockey, so it was refreshing to shoot a new sport, and the hours of shooting all weekend served as some good practice. Hockey is something of a way of life up here, certainly more so than where I grew up in Baltimore. It’s all so foreign to me, but it’s definitely fun to be around.
These are my highlights from those two games. The first ended in a 1-1 tie, and Boston College was able to scrape out a victory in the second game.
I shot the third period of the BC-Notre Dame game perched in the middle of both team benches, with no glass between myself and the rink. It’s an amazing spot that’s right on top of the action, but overall, I’m just happy to walk away from those 20 minutes without a high stick or puck to the face.
