Drinking and Jumping

From FanIQ:

It seems that Russian Ivan Ukhov, one of the top high jumpers in the world, decided to show up for the recent Lausanne Grand Prix drunk on vodka and Red Bull. Now, while being drunk might make you a better pool player, it certainly doesn’t make you a better high jumper.

Is there anyone in the world who wouldn’t watch the drunk olympics? How is this not a reality show yet?

From auto unleashed:

It’s been almost a year since the auto world was stunned when legendary rally driver Colin McRae died in a helicopter accident, with three more persons including his 4 year old son. To honor him, approximately 1100 Subaru cars gathered in front of Colin’s residence in Scotland on Saturday August 30. The convoy, that stretched 30 miles drove for nine hours (300 miles) to Prodrive’s headquarters in Banbury, with thousands of fans cheering along the way. “Literally every bridge had people waving and cheering us along with many hanging the Saltire from the railings.” said Grant Hendry, who led the McRae Gathering convoy. “It turned what was an already memorable event into a truly amazing and emotional occasion.”
