Big Shots for March 11, 2010

This week Big Shots provides proof that there's no pants like golf pants, unless you prefer cycling pants. And I'll choose none of the above, thank you. I'll also show you why a field hockey stick to the throat is no fun, and provide a primer on running a foot race whilst dressed as an anthropomorphized sausage. And it's not even March Madness yet. These indignities aside, it was an eventful week in the sports world, so let's get to it as we count the hours until opening day. ( 34 photos total)
