Jackie Robinson Steals Home


Jack­ie Robin­son Steals Home, orig­i­nal­ly uploaded by stechico.

One of the pri­ma­ry rea­sons why I’ve grown to love the Dodgers.

Base­ball World Series

Sub­way Series: Brook­lyn Dodger Jack­ie Robin­son charg­ing wildy fr. 3rd base as unwary NY Yan­kee catch­er Yogi Berra squats behind Dodger bat­ter dur­ing Jack­ie’s steal of home plate in the 8th inning of the 1st game of the World Series at Yan­kee Sta­di­um.

Loca­tion: New York, NY, US
Date tak­en: Sep­tem­ber 28, 1955
Pho­tog­ra­ph­er: Ralph Morse

This pho­to is from the LIFE pho­to archive host­ed Google here. It’s very nice of them to do this as more peo­ple can reflect back to the great images that Life has tak­en over the years.

DIY Helmet Cam for Snowboarding & Skiing

I ded­i­cate the fol­low­ing video to the homie Keno for sure! Haha…

He’s been think­ing of doing some­thing like this and usu­al­ly holds his Pow­er­shot with his right hand while going down the slopes. The only prob­lem with his tech­nique is that it some­what hin­ders his bal­ance. One the oth­er hand, the only down side to prob­a­bly hav­ing the cam­era on your head is that you real­ly got to be care­ful of how you ride, and not get into some sort of face plant, aka. kiss­ing pow­der =)

Here’s a live shot of it in use:

An ode to Tom Cruise’s famous scene in Risky Busi­ness. This must have been bank to make but I think it was humor­ous and cre­ative.
