The Year in Pictures 2004 - Sports

Skating, Sprinting, Searching, and Sailing Away . . .

(clockwise from top left) On Nov. 5, Adam Oates was inducted into the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Athletics Hall of Fame. Oates, who led RPI to a national championship in 1985, went on to a brilliant career in the National Hockey League, and currently is 13th among the NHL’s all-time point-scoring leaders; Smarty Jones won the first two legs of thoroughbred racing’s triple crown, but Birdstone (pictured) had the last laugh—the 3-year-old horse owned by Saratoga socialite Marylou Whitney upset Smarty in the Belmont Stakes, and later took Saratoga’s biggest prize, the Travers; Meredith Streeter and John Bensetler examined the contents of a geocache, one of more than 100,000 hidden treasures waiting to be found in the global scavenger hunt known as geocaching; the H.M.S. Bounty and its young crew docked at the Port of Albany in November, reminding us that young men—and women—can still run away to the sea.
