So, I already got bored with the format of my recently started blog; and armed with a couple conceptual ideas to play with, went looking for images, photos and such to give this blog a facelift.

It's still a work in progress, but I think it is on the right track.

Along the way I came across some interesting photos. This one is obviously football related and almost looks staged, but isn’t. Outside of the obvious blooper quality of this photo, I was particularly struck by the abundant protective gear, packed stands, and media grabbing advertising ;-)

Personally, I think the goal post is better protected than the players…

Here is the original caption to the photo:
Cleveland fullback Tony Adamle finds the goalpost a great offensive weapon as he vainly tries to prevent Dons' back Walt Clay from scoring a touchdown in a Dons-Brown professional football game, November 25.
With the goal post blocking for him on his left side, Clay hit pay dirt through a big hole in the line. Cleveland won, 31-14, to remain undefeated.

Strangely, the date on the picture said November 27, 1948. I believe that this is actually the publication date. A little bit of research on the net revealed the following about the game and the 1948 Cleveland Browns.
