Thanks to the vixen with a Nikon (it's probably a Canon but Nikon sounds better, doesn't it?) Meagan Foster for allowing VFTD to chop crop and desaturate one of her awesome shots from World Cup 2011--a TBD breakout no less--that despite my best efforts still looks fantastic. I've been looking for an action shot that could serve as a VFTD header for a long time and this one fits the bill and then some. Thanks, Meagan.
Btw, I hear the grumbling. Don't think I don't. I know what you people are like and you've been waiting all week for a DC Open follow-up and/or the next Basic Tactics post but not for nothing. And you've pretty much decided I've been slacking. Well it's true but only because I've been sick as a dog--which is nearly a meaningless expression, isn't it? Anyway it's true. Today I'm feeling slightly more human so I'm beginning to make up for lost time. I'd like to thank Joey and the rest of the team who have been passing this nasty little bug around ever since MAO. Y'all suck.
