A Day at the Park

A couple of weeks back I visited Phil Chacon Park in Albuquerque to check out the Albuquerque Aardvarks rugby team in their match with the Glendale, Colorado Raptors. Following are some of the picture I took at the match. The action was so fierce and fast paced that some of the other images came out blurry.

Aardvarks’ Warming Up The Aardvarks started with a warm-up huddle. Focused on a single goal, winning.

The Aardvarks and Raptors completed some last minute stretching and drilling and lined up for the kickoff.

And a minute after that, the game was on!

This had to hurt! Well, the ‘Varks will get payback…

Benson Hendrix, APR has been called everything from a “social media zen warrior” to the ” ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper of Public Relations,” and from a “behind the scenes powerbroker,” to “the loudmouth PR love child of Henry Rollins and Anthony Bourdain,” but doesn’t really believe any of it (except maybe the “Rowdy” Roddy Piper part). Hendrix is the Social Media Manager for the University of New Mexico and loves helping organizations and people tell the stories that are important to them. He is also an adjunct social media instructor at the University of New Mexico, and the Social Media Strategist for TEDxABQ. In the few minutes a week he calls "spare time," he relaxes with his wife and chases his dream to be a better photographer.
