The Pretzel Hold

Martin's Parker Ryan (left) tries to dislodge Colleyville Heritage's Corey Howard (right) from his back during the Region II 112-pound wrestling championship at South Grand Prairie High School on Saturday, February 8, 2003. Ryan won the match.

Every time I see this image, it takes me a moment to mentally untangle which limbs belong to whom. I like the pained expression on the nearest wrestler's face. Competitive wrestling makes for great facial expressions and strange body positions.
