The final week of the year is always full of "best of" and "top (insert number here)" lists, but it's fun to take a few minutes to look back at the past year before starting fresh in the new one. Here are the Top 25 sports photo galleries from The Baltimore Sun in the past year, based on the interest of readers of our website. As you can see, most of the galleries were created this year, but some others have continued to show popularity over the years -- our gallery of Michael Phelps originated in 2003, for example. Because these galleries have been created at different times, remember that they're not all updated (the baseball free agents, for example, have mostly signed with new teams). Browse at your convenience for the rest of the year. No. 1 might surprise you. Can you guess it? Happy new year. -- Dean Jones Jr.
