Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Badgers are number one for the fifth year straight!
Nope, not in hockey, football or basketball, but they are number one in the nation for Concrete Canoe Racing!!

I thought this was an article from The Onion at first, but it is a dead serious sport.
The U.S. competition, which drew 22 teams and more than 700 students, faculty and alumni to the University of Washington, Seattle, campus, was a real nail-biter, says Steve Cramer, a UW-Madison professor of civil and environmental engineering and the team's advisor. "You can't believe just how difficult it is to win this competition five years in a row," he says.
They're off to Holland to participate in the 30th annual Dutch Concrete Canoe Challenge in September.

I smell an Olympic sport here......

    Um. wow. I think I'll stick to wooden canoes and fiberglass/plastic kayaks. Those competitors look a little intense for me.
