UNFAIR TERRITORY Panthers linebacker James Anderson failed to pull off this dirty trick against Reggie Bush in the infield of Sun Life Stadium—which doubles as the Dolphins' home—during the first quarter of last Friday's Miami-Carolina exhibition game. Anderson was called for a 15-yard face-mask penalty; Bush, meanwhile, came to shove, steamrolling the Panthers for 81 total yards in less than a half in his team's 20--10 victory.

MIND IF I CRASH HERE? A fly ball off the bat of Japanese second baseman Ryuki Urano proved to be a real screamer for Mexico's Sebastian Pacheco and Gerardo Duarte (right), who collided during a Cal Ripken World Series game in Aberdeen, Md., on Aug. 17. Japan won the game 2--1 and defeated Korea and the Dominican Republic to win the international division before beating Ohio Valley of Kentucky 7--0 on Sunday to claim the world title.

LOU CAPOZZOLA 1950--2011 In his 20 years as a photographer, the 61-year-old Bronx native captured virtually every one of hockey's climactic moments for SI, including this Alex Ovechkin hat trick against the Penguins in the second round of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs. His final assignment for the magazine was shooting the Bruins' 39-year-drought-ending Stanley Cup title in June. Capozzola, who began his SI career in 1980 as a lighting assistant, died of a heart attack at his home last Thursday.
