bp17 560x240

Every so often we like to check in with Boston.com’s “The Big Picture” to see what they are highlighting. Regularly they bring you startling imagery from current events, and every so often they include Sports. The photos below are some of our favorites from their recent feature, “Winter sports beats winter blues.”

In the Northern Hemisphere the short, dark days of January can put people in a funk. Unless they embrace the weather. Playing in the snow may be the best cure for the winter blues. Collected here are pictures from the last month showing everyone from Olympic and professional athletes performing at the highest levels of their sports to ordinary people enjoying an old-fashioned snowball fight in the street. Who needs spring? — Lane Turner
