Oh, man, can you imagine if Doc21 (or whatever his name is that goes to all the home games with the great camera lens) were to send Acero pics to put in the strip each week?

Just a thought! :D

You should make some money off this, Acero!

BTW, in the photo you've got where Troy gets hurt - is it just me, or does it look like that Titan is aiming real hard for Troy's knee?

The only way I could do that is if I owned the rights to the images as well. Right now I'm grabbing them off of the ESPN recap gallery. The post-gazette used to have a good extensive photo section for each game, but I can't find it anymore.

The other option would be if I actually made the illustrations (as opposed to just applying photoshop filters to give it a comic book effect). But that ain't happening. I'm no freakin Stan Lee.
