The vibrant chirping of cameras echoes throughout the arena. Hungry photographers coat the sidelines with a ferocious eagerness rarely seen before. It's a unique new season of brilliant sports visuals.
Welcome to 2012, the year of the miracle. We've still got several months left, but so far we've seen goaltending phenom Jonathan Quick lead his Kings to their first ever Stanley Cup, a pack of diaper-dandy freshman lead Kentucky to an NCAA national championship, and an Asian-American baller by the name of Jeremy Lin unexpectedly carry New York and the Knicks on his back.
Just the usual menu of heart-warming stories. The beauty of sports.
We've uncovered the best of the visual bunch—the coolest pics in sports this year so far.
Enjoy the eye-popping feast.
