World's site info

Nige has put together a web portal for info on this year's world's. Information will be posted on a regular basis so check in frequently. One side bar link leads to a piece I wrote about the 1976 World's in Ware River (the last time the championship was held in the US.) So, in the spirit of Bruce's "Old School" post I've included a pic from that year's race, from an earlier Madmothist blog post..

Just a couple of days to go to vote in how much fitter you are than me. I'm just reeling in the years.

Reelin' in the years, by Donald Fagen & Walter Becker (1972).

Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something
That you think is gonna last
You wouldn't know a diamond
If you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

You been tellin' me you're a genius
Since you were seventeen
In all the time I've known you
I still don't know what you mean
The weekend at the college
Didn't turn out like you planned
The things that pass for knowledge
I can't understand


I spend a lot of money
And I spent a lot of time
The trip we made in hollywood
Is etched upon my mind
After all the things weve done and seen
You find another man
The things you think are useless
I can't understand
