Opening Day Photos and photos in general

As some of you may or may not know, I'm a bit of a photo nerd. I like to look at hi-res photos from games, especially when I am unable to see them - which is far too often.

Trouble is, it's freaking hard to find hi-res photos. CBS sportsline used to be good for it, because you could just change the size by editing part of the URL, but they have hardly any photos anymore, especially for the A's.

(eg: this becomes this, and there's only 5 photos from the game tonight - all of the Red Sox)

Yahoo is great for photos, but unfortunately, I just can't find them big enough for my liking, or big enough for desktop backgrounds, which is what I'd really like to do.

A long time ago I found a photo site that seemed to have all kinds of AP/Getty images in high resolution, but I can't remember what it was at all, Google isn't saving me, and who knows, it could be gone know anyways.

So my question to you is - do you know of some great site out there for exactly what I'm looking for?

Or, do you have some great photos you've taken yourself that you'd like to share? I know someone posted a great one last year of the Coliseum as the sun was setting, I used it as my background for quite awhile.

And finally, as an example of a photo I'd really like to find in a high resolution, this one here:

So if anyone has any hints or photos of their own to share, it'd be greatly appreciated.
