     It's Sunday night and I'm just unwinding from today's 28-27 Green Bay Packers win over the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field. It was a close game, but the Packers defense held off Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
     It's my second Packers game of the season, but you know what? Second year pro Randall Cobb is fun to take photos of. He's a high-energy, high-emotion player. I have several photos of this young man flying through the air for extra yards, getting his head pulled back around with a face-mask call and more.
     Cobb, who also serves as the team's kickoff and punt returner, always gets the crowd loud when the Packers give him the ball. It seems like the young receiver is also becoming one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite go-to guys.
     It was a much-needed win for the Packers on Sunday, giving them a 2-2 record heading into a 3-game road trip, starting with Indianapolis next week, followed by the Houston Texans. The Saints, however, continue to struggle, falling to 0-4 on the season.
     The Packers had their ups and down, but it looks as though the running game with Cedric Benson is really starting to gain steam.
     Enjoy some photos from the action

     It's homecoming time in Shawano! Time for the teenagers to pull out the toilet paper, break out those red and black colored clothing and cheer for your team.
     The entire week was filled with student activities -- car smashing, crazy dress-up days, a pep rally, powder puff football game, parade and the big football game.
     The events I covered were the parade, football game and the powder puff football game — all favorites of mine because of the action in each of them.
     Shawano won it's homecoming game, 48-0, defeating Oconto Falls -- the school I graduated from way back in 1999. It was a fun game to be at with the crowd loud in support of its team and with all the vibrant colors around with the red and orange and black, made for some nice images.
     Football game action was pretty good -- Shawano likes to pass a little more than other high school teams, so it's exciting to see that.
     Here are some images from the past few days.
     Tomorrow it's the Packers vs Saints with the UW Marching Band on hand for pregame and halftime.
