Peerless Naval Lunar

9/24/12 - York, PA: For a second, I thought that Navy was waxing where NASA is now waning. Instead it was just a exceptionally unusual scene from what I normally bare witness as I'm hammering away on astroturf. I'm not sure if this was Naval training, or observation, or just a joyride, or even if it's typical.

My favorite is the middle image, but I had to include sequence for a little extra airtime. McDaniel dropped Goucher 4-1. Here's the boxscore.

I forgot again to stretch my photo muscles, so I had to ice-up in my editing studio this Labor Day weekend … Here are some of my favorite picks as I work on my early season mechanics.
