I took this photo at the MLB Fan Cave in Manhattan. This was a marketing gimmick in which a bunch of guys were placed into this "fishbowl" and watched every game in the past baseball season. Excuse the scaffolding that was blocking the view.

I like the metaphor of hitting the bull's eye target, and the smooth progression from outside circles to inside. The design also accommodated the wild-card round well.
