So we load up the first camera we will built onto a cart and drive to the north endzone and begin to set it up.  Since there is no easy access to position on the field, I walk from the Bucs tunnel (south endzone) all the way to the north endzone and then up the access stairs located in the NW corner of the field.  I continue up to the mezzanine level, around to the north endzone and back down near the field where Sam and our veteran had parked the cart. 

They then proceed to hand me the camera piece by piece.  One giant box about 1 1/2 feet wide, 3 feet tall and about 4 feet long held the lens, which again weighs nearly 20-30 pounds alone. 

The next box a little smaller than the first contained the camera body which also weighs 20-30 pounds.  Then they grab the tripod, which too weighs nearly 20-30 pounds as well.  A third box contains the tripod head and it alone weighs nearly 10-15 pounds.  Heavy lifting I know.  Finally there are some accessory type cables, headsets and a few other things we need.

If you have ever watched a televised football game many do not realize what goes into putting a game on the air. It truly takes an army of folks to make it happen.

Recently my station, 10 News, has partnered up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in broadcasting all of their preseason games. (Conveniently for me one of the main reasons I wanted to move from my home state, New Mexico).

You don't see a lot of pro sports based out of The Land of Enchantment.  I wanted to cover, the NFL, NHL, MLB and the Space Program, and what other television market has all these?  Tampa Bay!!!!!  So for me this partnership is a much bigger deal to me than my bosses realize.
