(SEATTLE) August 14, 2015 – Denver Broncos beat Seattle Seahawks 22-20 in first NFL preseason match

(SEATTLE)  August 14, 2015 – Apparently not only sports photojournalists need to work out the off-season cobwebs.  The revamped Seattle Seahawks roster, one that includes starting QB Russell Wilson, but missing unsigned strong safety Kam Chancellor, have some house cleaning to do after a slightly painful 22-20 loss to the Denver Broncos in their teams’ first preseason game of the season played at Centurylink Field, Seattle Washington on August 21, 2015.

It was a familiar evening for us sports shooters after a record setting warm and dry summer in Seattle that’s seen more than 40 days over 80F degrees.    The thunderdrizzles that preceded the game actually dissipated midway through the first quarter to those photogs who didn’t have Think Tank Photo hydrophobia camera/lens raincovers to protect their gear.  Despite the lackluster performance of the Seahawks’ second and third string players, Seahawks fans showed up in droves of Goretex to weather out the soggy evening.

Of course, it’s always great working on the sidelines along professional friends like Dean Rutz/Seattle Times, Joshua Trujillo/SeattePI.com and Elaine Thompson-Ted Warren-John Froschauer/Associated Press. Again, must thanks to the Think Tank Photo crew for designing the killer-great protective Hyrdophobia camera/lens covers that us Seattle photojournalists rely on during our rainy sport season.  Stay tuned for more coverage throughout the Seahawks’ season, friends!
