It's week two of Friday Night Flights and "The Ace" Sports Photographer Brian Warner and I are headed to West Linn to cover the game with Lincoln.
As everyone knows...I like to get a bite to eat on Friday Night Flights. That actually started years ago at West Linn. We were going to do a highlight package of the game and normally we do what is called a standup in the story. That's where the reporter stands in front of the camera and says something. I had one minute for the hilites of the game, so I wanted to make the standup quick. So, I asked the photographer to follow a play and pan to me and I would eat some popcorn and say, "Friday Night Flights is back...isn't it great!"
Well, that's what we did and it turned out fine. The promotions department liked it and decided to run the standup at various times to promote our show. After that, people started asking me what I was going to eat the next week. So, that year I started eating something different every week. We've been going every week and having a blast...eating some tasty food with some tasty highlights to go with it on FRIDAY NIGHT FLIGHTS!
