Big Shots for May 14, 2010

This week in Big Shots alligators dream of eating golfers, coaches get hoisted and drenched in beer, and a stuntman turns a subway escalator into a ski run. With so much going on in the sports world, I'm looking forward to upcoming posts on both the NBA and NHL Finals, as well as bicycle racing at the Giro d'Italia and the Tour of California. And the World Cup is only a month away. ( 31 photos total)
