02/04/2006: And from the Weird Sports Department....
Actually, as a geek myself, while this isn't my thing, it's firmly enough in the category of geek sports (alas, no longer can we indulge in such competitions as disk drive races) that I can appreciate it: Belt Sander Racing.
In case you never have seen this spectacle live and in person (and no, I haven't, myself), they have a movie showing you what it's all about (QuickTime required, and note that it's not hosted on a streaming server; you may want to download it to your computer if you want to watch). Definitely one of those "must do once before you die" things.
Thanks to Dr. Abby (who attended this afternoon's NEBSRA 2006 Winter Nationals) for the reference.
