Shooting 2 cameras at the same time

Happy New Year everyone.
Here is a shot I got on New Year's Eve day. W&M vs Harvard.
Some details about the shot:
I picked up this tip from another photo site and it works like a charm. I placed a 50D + 17-40 L f/4 combo mounted on a mini tabletop tripod about an inch off the ground. I prefocused using Live View on the front of the rim and then set the focus to manual. I connected a Pocket Wizard to the 50D via a remote shutter release cable. I was also shooting with a 1D Mark III and a 5D Mark II, both had Pocket Wizards hotshoed on them. Anytime I took a shot with either camera, it would fire the 50D. This is a good way of getting two different angles and perspectives of the same play.
