i just saw this this evening - what is this effect called? http://espn.go.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/11127248/how-catcher-framing-becoming-great-skill-smart-teams-new-york-yankees-espn-magazine - i am curious if it is a custom build or if it is something that can be done in wordpress perhaps also?

Ah, so it is(n’t)
A rare treat these days! … which is a sad thing to have to say in this post-WebStandards, let’s-just-do-everything-with-JS era.[/ot]
