    Nice shot Bill.
    Yup I've been following sports for 50 years and "Flying Bobby" is still my all time favorite photo. I even had the poster.

    Haven't shot any sports in a while; looking back at the action shots of my niece's soccer games, it makes me wait to try again, now that I have better equipment, and (hopefully) actual ability.

    These aren't "great", or even very good--just "favorites" for one reason or another.

    This one because of the pretty clear holding violation:

    This one I call "Bracing for Impact" though whether she is more concerned with the ball hitting her or the opponent's foot, I'm not sure. :D

    My favorite non-action shot--enjoying the victory:

    Now, picking my favorite sports photo of all time?? Wow, that's a tall order. There are so many choices that I can think of that would qualify, so many incredible moments captured.

    But I picked THIS one, again not for the quality of the picture, but for the historic moment it symbolized. Gold medalist Jesse Owens on the podium in Berlin, 1936, as the National Anthem plays.

    I got to meet Jesse Owens when I was in high school; he came to our school during Black History week (the first, I think, that our school had ever held). I found him absolutely captivating and suspect that he was one of the major athletes (along with Pele) who began to sway me toward an interest in sports.
