    Default 2009 Gloucester cheese rolling highlights

    It's that time of year again, as the one and only annual meet of the greatest athletes on the planet took on "The Hill", and the cheese, in search of fame, glory and fortune .... or at least a bit of a laugh.

    It is the greatest sport on earth, of course... the Gloucester cheese rolling meet of 2009.

    For those that missed it due to time zones, family commitments or perhaps you live under a rock and didn't know it was on last week, here are the majestic highlights of what is probably the thing that makes me most proud to be a Brit.

    So here, without further adue, is the sport that put the "Great" in "Great Britain"

    Enjoy.

    I think that's a new Olympic sport right there.

    That must be the only sport I know of where you could fall on your ass and get bitten by the teeth the previous competitor lost.

    there must be a very small percentage of competitors who complete that event in an uninjured state.


    and yet I laugh my ass off every time I see it

    and kudos for the loon who ran the thing in a "Borat" thong....that's just nuts

    Seems like it gets more and more reported each year! I predict an inspirational Disney Cheese Rolling movie within the next 5 years.

    Graeme, my brother! My compadre!! Where have you been all my life?!!

    You know how some countries go crazy with "soccer" or "football" (depending on where you're from?) You know how it's the sort of thing they put wars on hold for and start others? You know how it's a source of intense national pride and identity? Yeah, well...none of it compares to how this sport will be treated in Brokenland!!!
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I'm happy you all enjoy my fair island's greatest sporting triumph.

    I make a point of waking up most mornings and promising to, at least once, act like a colossal wanker. These titans save it up all year and then unleash on cheese day. Fantastic is merely an adjective. These superhuman drunks go far beyond mere words.

    And Broken, I have an idea for the Republic flag .... A man, battered, bruised and smiling through broken and bloody teeth, holding aloft "the cheese".

    Perhaps with a yellow background. What do you think?

    Or is yellow a crap colour? Let me know.

    I do hope the slope was cleared of nettles first other wise that could be even worse than scrapes.

    that must be what makes Britain Great! Most mortals would be unable to unleash on cheese day.


    prunes are the antidote for that tho.

    Thanks, graeme. I'll watch ESPN's Sportscenter to see if I can get some commentary on the highlights ("[insert ladie's name here] goin' all Laura Ingalls on us.").

    Forget broken teeth. Any count on how many clavicles were shattered? That looks dangerous as hell - and a lotta fun!

    The injury count was actually pretty light this year. Of course, there are usually a few broken bones and concussions.

    I think the best (worst) year was 1998, when a race had to be postponed for an hour or so after ALL the ambulances were busy taking the injured to hospital. They had to wait for them to return before they could resume the rolling.

    Whilst I am way too old to participate in this (crushed L5 disc, knackered knees) I did enjoy "El Toro del fuego" in Albacete, Spain, one year. A man, seriously strapped up with fireworks follows the crowd as fireworks fire off of him into said crowd. I have never run so fast in my life.

    I also enjoyed a new year's eve in Bydgoszcz, Poland, where a tradition is for people to fire rockets out of champagne bottles over the town square and then throw the champagne bottles up into the air after them.

    Crazy fuckers, one and all.
