    I regularly download newspaper photos that have terrific compositions. Photojournalists capture subjects in uncontrolled natural environments that are generally more complex and surprising than what humans can devise.

    It's really difficult to bring photographic order to that chaos, but when cameramen pull it off, it's really something special.

    I thought I'd start a running thread with some of the shots I save. Feel free to contribute if you see a beautiful photo in the newspaper.

    When I was a kid, I used to cut out photos from the old Soviet Sport newspaper. As we were leaving, I left portions to a friend and a cousin.

    The greatest goalkeeper I have ever seen, Vladimir Astapovsky, from CSKA Moscow, the MVP of the Soviet League, 1976.

    That's portraiture not documentary. Unless they caught him pulling that pose casually

    Well, OK, it is with Dave Schultz. But here is the Hammer "documentary style".

    The other guy is Dave van Boxmeer.

    The funny thing was that Flyers teammates said that Schultz was really scared of this. He thought he might have killed van Boxmeer.

    PS. But I did watch a bunch of Behn Wilson's fights now. Those were really scary.
