Gamecock Game-day, pt 1.

Thomas Sumter was a a brigadier general in the South Carolina militia during the American War of Independence. Because of his fierce fighting, the British named him the Carolina Gamecock. The British had earlier burnt down his house – that probably had something to do with the name.

Last Sunday, my wife and I visited our freshman son Parker at the University of South Carolina (USC) Gamecocks home football game against the Missouri Tigers. What started as a blistering hot first half quickly became a heavy steady rain from half-time through the middle of the 4th quarter.

I brought my Nikon in hopes of capturing a few game and people shots. The rain turned out to be a significant photograph bonanza! Here’s the first of a two part post featuring Gamecock game-day photos.
