2 Point Lead: Chatting with Iconic Photographer Walter Iooss

2 Point Lead host Yannis Pappas sat down with the man who is responsible for four decades of iconic sports photos, the great Walter Iooss. Between Michael Jordan shots and thousands of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition pictures, this guy's done it all.

There's one image, however, we were especially curious about. You know, the one where Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Edgar Renteria, Rey Ordonez and Alex Gonzalez -- all on whom were popular, all-star shortstops in the late 90s -- posed together with their shirts off.

They didn't look like the future stars of baseball; they looked like N'Sync gone horribly wrong.
