Fight For The Fish 2012

On Friday night a fellow photographer gave me a gift that I am still appreciating today, that gift was a set of ear plugs.  I am certain that had I not had those my ears would still be ringing tonight, almost 24 hours later.  The reason was that Coeur d’Alene High School’s Jordan Court was overflowing with students who had the goal of making a lot of noise to show off their school spirit.  Yesterday was the annual “Fight For The Fish”, the spirit games between the Coeur d’Alene Viking and the Lake City Timberwolf basketball teams.  Here are some photos from some of the different aspects of the event, at the end of this post you will find a link to view all the photos from the evening.

We Love Bobby!

 One of the goals of spirit games is to raise money for a good cause.  This past fall Priest River football player Bobby Clark was seriously injured during the homecoming game against Timberlake.  The Coeur d’Alene and Lake City students chose to raise money to help Bobby’s family with their medical bills.  I live in the Priest River area and covered the game when he was hurt so when I heard that the students were donating $1,000 to help Bobby I was thrilled.  Then when they started chanting “We Love Bobby” over and over again had to grab a clip so that Bobby, his family and all his friends could see it for themselves.  Here is about 9 seconds of the chant:

Of Course, The Fans!
