If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be a cameraperson tasked to cover one of the biggest sporting events of the year, check out the below photos. They show the very specific assignment notes of ESPN cameraman Kyle Farmer, whose job it was yesterday to follow one of the most buzzed-about players in the NFL during Monday Night Football.

Yes, the "RG3" in the notes stands for Robert Griffin III, the quarterback for the Washington Redskins who was playing his first game back last night after undergoing extensive knee surgery. Griffin's return to football after eight months of recovery and rehab has been one of the biggest stories in the NFL this year.

The image, which you can see as close-up crop and in a wider shot below, was posted by Adam Bitely on Twitter this morning. Bitely was sitting behind the ESPN cameraman during last night's game.
