The challenge will close on or about the last day of September
All the usual Challenge RULES will apply, including:

1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

2. Only one entry per person, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo-challenge, after all!

4. The winner will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Challenge, and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the SC Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

5. The curator cannot enter his or her own salon

I'm assuming - or hoping - that "Sport" covers all aspects of sports and sporting events - including not merely the athletes, but those who come to watch them...the ubiquitous fans.

That's my entry - a serious baseball fan at a game of our local Southern Oregon minor minor minor league Baseball Team (The Medford Rogues). The look on his (the fan's) face reminds me of a quote I love by Leo Durocher, the legendary Baseball Manager - who said:
“Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand.”

Cross started with the Belgians, it was their winter workout routine. Take their summer road racing bikes, fit skinny little knobby tires on, go ride through grass and mud. Then they worked in stairs and barriers you have to carry your bike over. We love it here in the states because it's intentionally less serious, less aggressive, than pure road racing. Lots of beer, heckling, and families.

It's also great for spectators: small courses that let you see the acton, a reasonable 45 min plus a lap, and *cowbells*.
