In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, this photo of Boston police in action moments after the explosions became one of the iconic images of the courageous work done by first responders in the moment of greatest fear and uncertainty. For this week's cover, Sports Illustrated has eschewed other events in sports this week and used the photo of three Boston of Boston's finest surrounding 78 year old marathoner Bill Iffrig. The fallen runner was walked to the finish line and the image has served as a testament to those who served heroically.

@awfulannouncing I'd say opportunistic
@awfulannouncing seen that photo several times, but this is the first instance I noticed the drawn gun. Wow
@awfulannouncing what is the name of the photographer that took the photo?
@caseybritten Perfect example of why KISS works TIME AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN
