Hi TJ,

I've been shooting with a 70-200 2.8 IS for years and rarely use the IS for sports, although I've read, recently, that it can be helpful.  I do use the IS for events, such as weddings, plays, conventions, reunions, parties, Vacation Bible School, scouting events, and any other event that is either indoors or in low lighting, where a flash would not be desired.  Personally, I would miss it.  But you have to determine your own needs, then decide.  If you purchase the non-IS lens, then find, at some point, that you really need the IS, simply sell it.  These lenses hold their value, quite well.  I shoot with a 7D, and a 60D is comparable, so Im sure you can expect lots of excellent shots, even with less than stellar lighting.  Whatever you decide, good luck.
