Cheese Rolling 2009
categories: Crazy, Videos

Every year in Gloucestershire England, people hurl themselves down a very steep hill in pursuit of a cheese wheel. And once we have nationalized health care over here, we’ll be able to have the same sort of wacky competitions.

This looks like my perfect sport, a combination of two things i love, cheese and throwing yourself down a hill.

That cheese must be heavenly especially after rolling through mud and the blood of previous cheese chasers.

Something tells me this ritual has something to do with alcohol.

I never understood the UK "pub culture" until it was explained to me this way by an Irish friend:

"When the weather is good outside, we open the door to the pub, when it's bad, we close it."

It's the most delicious cheese in the whole world.
I'll enter the competition, win, and then make my friends feed me that dairy awesomeness bite by bite while I lie on the hospital bed in full body cast.

Why did I hear a yell of "Get the cheese!"?
Who the hell, running down that hill, needed to be told?

Run like crazy and fall 15 times to eventually get tackled by half of what appears to be a rugby team, while the cheese gets away. I want to be part of that.
