    I usually watch this (and shout for Cambridge), but this year I'm going to have to yell for the dark Blues.

    My nephew's in the Oxford boat! And at 6' 10", he's the tallest guy ever to row in the race.

    Go Oxford!

    (And Cambridge.)

    Not sure anyone outside of Oxford/Cambridge cares about it. Bit puzzled as to why it gets a pretty huge billing.

    Probably because most of the country's media went to one or the other.

    Its seen as those quintessentially British things thay housewives love, despite every boat in living memory being crewed by Canadians.

    Also, even people in oxford dont care about it.

    True enough.

    Pretty surprised to read the swimmer from last year was jailed for six months.

    He was being a massive fuckwit, but six months seems very harsh.

    The judge's comments in that article seem rather bizarre to me.

    I agree with them to a certain extent. The bloke is an arsehole and he had a prejudiced view of high society. Six months is a piss take, though.

    Heh, they must really hate it. They'd do a live blog for the opening of a bag of crisps.

    IMO the Boat Race is a good sporting event. I just wish it would include all other Universities, so it's a bit like University Challenge, and the best two teams at the end of the season can race instead of the same ones each year.

    Well, without Oxford and Cambridge having about 20 teams each. :)

    Of course, one team per University :)

    Oxbridge'd just dominate all the others for years.

    Better to do a big inter-uni thing that wasn't contingent on your institution having a dozen+ boat houses...
