Eye on sports: Our favorite photos of the week


We present our favorite photos of the past sports week.

This week’s offerings include the return of football, including not one but two shots of Brady Quinn, who seems to have disappeared in the NFL.

We also have images from that wonderful Aussie Rules Football tradition of "recovery sessions," where players frolic in the surf. Plus, shots from soccer, baseball and college football, including a male cheerleader.
