Just to get a feel for things, I have just finished going back through the orignal POTW posts for some more info on the selected images...

Congrats to all for having your pitchers chosen, and well done to the mods as well for being able to decide on one each week! :D

And boy o boy, I didn't realise some images could cause so much controversy :shock:

Now to decide :?
