Big Shots for March 5, 2010

This week Big Shots slops through the mud at the women's soccer Algarve Cup tournament in Portugal, plods through the rain at the soggy Tokyo Marathon, and then... gives an Australian rugby player a wedgie. There's much more absurdity in store this week, as well as the usual great action pictures, as Big Shots looks ahead to an upcoming post on the return of baseball. Spring can't be far away.
