Past Words of the Day

After giving up a record number of homers in its first series, people starting calling the new Yankee Stadium the "Launching Pad." As it turns out, there's a wind current caused by the shape of the stadium that tends to lift balls flying toward the right field fence.

All those people living in Aspen, CO, they are called Aspenites. The people visiting? Still just tourists.

The top of the hill.

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.

Around the world people call them Buffalo wings. In Buffalo they're just "wings."

Freedom Cage is the brilliantly oxymoronic name given to the small chunk of asphalt designated as the place of protest outside the Pepsi Center for the Democratic National Convention. The place is separated from the main event by several rows of fences and is tucked away out of sight, effectively deterring any meaningful protest.

As the old adage goes: "Freedom isn't free." That's because it's caged.
