04:52 pm - Boat Race spoiler

Oxford beat Cambridge by a fraction of a second (I'm guessing about half a second, maybe less) in an eighteen minute race.

Link and commentary to follow. Gloating starts here.

I know. Wheeeeeeeee!

ignore the fact I'm at Durham, who also row but doesn't get a look in when it comes to things like this. It's Oxford all the way, baby!

3/10ths of a second. A foot. Calculate speed accordingly.

Yay! The jinx caused by me watching is narrowly averted by me not knowing that it was today ;-)

I also had no idea that it was the Grand National on Saturday. This is what comes of living in a country that doesn't care about such things.

Since nobody involved knew until the announcement who'd won, I think it's eminently fair to state that there was no skill involved in Oxford's win, it was just straightforward random chance.

I'm having a bad weekend. You'll forgive me a small amount of bad-loserdom, I'm sure. ;-)

My mother is in England and I just got a voice mail from her - she was there. (She was calling to find out basketball results. We are a sports mad family.)
