I came across this sport on the internet a few years ago when I was just getting into hockey. It's the coolest thing ever. It's called Crashed Ice, and there's one tournament every year sponsored by Red Bull. Think of downhill ice skating. It's sort of like a bobsled track but wider with dropoffs and steps. Slaters start at the top of the hill and race each other to the bottom. They can reach speeds up to 50km/hr. It would be awesome to be able to do someday. It's hard to explain, so here's a video to show you. This is from the 2007 competition in Quebec City.



Somehow, Wally has gotten some fleas again. I woke up this morning with a fleabite in each armpit. I can't possibly explain how annoying of a feeling that is. I also got to take out my neighbor's bulldog today. He was nice and sleepy when I went inside to get him. I think Tater Tot may have some competition.
