Past Words of the Day

Satan's Steed is one of the nicknames of the blue horse sculpture just outside of the Denver International Airport. The horse's creepy red eyes attract all sorts of disgust from the Colorado public, who lament the fact that the sculpture is placed so prominently at the gateway to the city. Adding to the mustang's mystique, scupltor Luis Jimenez died...

Local derogatory nickname for Bainbridge Island.

Trenton has its own 'style' of this lawn game, where one pitches round metal quoits (sort of like metal hoops or rings) at a target.

The Hollywood sign has been changed to "Hollyweed" on a few occasions, once in the '70s after legislation that would decriminalize marijuana, as well as for a scene in a movie.

1. The annual Crazylegs Classic is an 8k (roughly 5 mile) run or a 2 mile walk. It starts on the Capitol Square and end on the field at Camp Randall Stadium. It started in 1982 and has grown to a race of almost 15,000 by 2007. The race has received national recognition as America's Best 100 Events in Runner's World Magazine. I can personally attest that this is a very fun event. They even have beer for you after you run! 2008 Update: The race this year was quite cold. The temp was in the forties but the 30mph wind made it seem colder. However, the cold didn't seem to hurt the attendance as it was a new record at over 17,000.

2. A great tradition in Madison that got better with the addition of wave starts. It used to be a two mile walk followed by a three mile run after you passed all the people that started way ahead of their actual mile pace. One can actually run the entire race now. A little pricey for just a tshirt but I guess you do get beer at the end and the money goes to a good cause. THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT. Gotta support those non rev sports.
