Do any of you recall the time Tiger Woods made that ridiculous putt that seemed to curve forever (at the 2005 Masters)? Remember seeing the Nike logo on his ball.....perfectly timed to show as it was sinking into the hole?

"In your life!" indeed.

I came across a hockey card recently that made me think about that putt. About how unlikely the logo would line up ever so perfectly.  A thousand tries and you couldn't recreate it.

1994/95 Leaf
#223 Dominic Roussel

This picture is definitely a one in a million shot.  Check out the Flyers logo on the puck as it sits propped up on Dominic's glove.

And Roussel's eyes are just piercing it as he remains concentrated (obviously to balance it as long as possible).  In fact, it doesn't even look like he's focused on the puck.....it looks like he's posing for the camera.


You gotta think that this photo was used solely because of the puck.  It's an otherwise bland photo.

But that puck!  In your life!

It just goes to show that a split second can really make the difference between a regular, everyday photo and a pretty spectacular shot.

  1. Cool pic! I always like coming across the little details in the pictures on cards like this.
