Big Shots for November 4, 2010

This week Big Shots rows the sculls at the Head of the Charles Regatta in Cambridge, Mass., gets out the way of the buffalo races in Chonburi, Thailand, and flips our pickup truck in Talladega, Ala. Scheduling conflicts regrettably left me unable to produce a World Series post. ( 28 photos total)
