Pro Football, Los Angeles(?)

It's Super Bowl Sunday, and the last time we had a pro football team in the area, there were two - the Rams and the Raiders. This image is from my archives. It's a shot of the surging Rams offensive line during their final season here in 1994. Technically, the image was made in Anaheim where the team played. But they were still the Los Angeles Rams and were part of the sports scene in Southern California for nearly 50 years before fleeing to St. Louis. This motion-blur photograph represents the fading memory many of us have of the NFL in Los Angeles.
