With sunny 80 degree weather and the Manhattan skyline gleaming in the background, it was a picture perfect day in Brooklyn for 28 of NYC’s toughest clubs to battle for all city domination in the 13th installment of the adidas Fanatic Cup tournament. Having made an epic run to the semi final round in 2013, TheGoodLife! FC was poised to make an impression in 2014, and make an impression we did. With wins over The Ace Hotel, Alife, adidas Originals, and the Standard Hotel, plus a cumulative 24-3 goal differential, we blazed through our bracket and the quarterfinals until we were stopped 2-1 by Barney’s NYC in a hard fought semi final match. All in all it was one hell of a day. Huge thanks to adidas, Bradley Carbone, and our squad of Juan Aguiar, Stefano Fossa, Andres Sosa, Miranda Maxwell, Sigrún Eva Jónsdóttir, Vincent Mark, Jeff Greensleeves, keeper Noah Ritter, captain Timbo Baggins, and coach Craig Wetherby for making one of NYC’s most memorable events that much more memorable. Check out our epic recap in film from Coach Craig with words from the Cap’n right here after the jump. Can’t wait til next year!
A big part of filming in the back country is using the helicopter, not only for a ride back to the top, but you have the option to take the doors off and strap the photographer and cinematographer to the side. As you can see in this photo, the filmer is standing on the side of the machine as it follows the rider down the mountain hitting over sized jumps. As you could imagine, this is a thrilling way to document the Earth (and action) below you! One could never grow tired of hanging from the side of this flying machine as it moves around the Alaskan mountains.
