The Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race 2008

Those of you who are interested in such things already know that Oxford soundly thrashed Cambridge at this year's Annual Boat Race, despite having the slowest time since 1947. For those of you who weren't there, allow me to show you these snapshots of the race near the end, taken by me with my Nikon D60 Super-Duper Camera with SarcasmoLens and built-in Adobe Photoshop InstaEdit(TM):

Oxford leads Cambridge at Barnes Bridge, towards the end of the race.
The length between the two teams here has been estimated by spectators as twice the width of the African continent.

Dammit. Next year, Oxford, next year... *shakes fist*

"Hiatus" and then THIS?!

I went to watch a couple of years ago. Sadly Cambridge lost then too. Come on you useless bunch get your acts together. Maybe they need an angry rower?

Nice to have you back (if you're actually back)

Elaine said...

Great to see you again (and in typically angry mood). Hope it's for good.

Ms-Ellisa said...

What??? Yourself isn't IN the boat rowing towards victory representing Cambridge?! You are on the side clicking snapshots?!

:-D

Nice choice on the Cambridge rowers' pic...

Good to have you back ;-)

nyu: Okay, either you're from New York University, or you're another fan of that weird anime series Elfen Lied. Either way, go study! =)

Xavier: Gosh, you still check back here? Awww. Uhm no unfortunately, this is a one-off. But I'll be posting an explanation soon though. It's not by choice :(

Watch-That-Blood-Pressure Anonymous: Well I had to say something about the crushing defeat didn't I? And do the obligatory fist-shaking thing. But I'm going back to my books now, don't worry :)

Little Medic: Oi, you bum, we won last year and crushed them, remember? This year was an Olympic year, so our big guys were training for the big arena. Clear your calendar for next year, I'll see you there. You can buy me coffee when we win :)

Elaine: Aw shucks, thanks. Yeah the angry-ness was just building up, and had to come out somehow: Oxford just happened to be a very convenient scapegoat at the time :)

Ms-Ellisa: Who, ME? A...a ROWER?! *crosses himself* Heavens, never!I have a brain, you know. ;)

Camera-head Anonymous or Ambitious Nikon Employee: Hey run down to the kebab shop down the street and get me a burger?

Posting answer here, in case you don't subscribe to comments or whatever:

If I don't mind?? Are you serious? That would actually be pretty cool :D I'm kind of a regular lurker of your blog as well - I guess the last time I updated my own blogroll I assumed you were gone for good. Fixing that right now.
Thanks for the compliment as well, I'm really flattered! Oh, and Grim Fandango keeps crashing on my computer. I hate Vista.

Hello Angry Medic. It's been a long time I visited your blog and since I heard from you on mine. I loved your post on the Oxford=Cambridge boat race. LOL...thank you.

ThuSpin said...

Hey, there was an Oxford/Cambridge boat race here in Portugal a while ago...I didn't get to see it because I live far away from the place where it happened but I read a newspaper telling how it went. Oxford also won...-_-

Sorry.
