It seems we report on this event EVERY year. Why? Because EVERY year despite tons of injuries, these crazy Brits continue to chase cheese down a hill and get all sorts of injured in the process. However, this year English nuts were joined by one from The Tar Heel State. First, for those new to this bizarreness, the annual cheese rolling contest was held Sunday in Brockworth, England-as it has since the mid-20th Century. There, organizers roll Double Gloucester cheese down the frighteningly steep, Cooper’s Hill. A mad dash for the cheese ensues.
As per the norm, there were several injuries yesterday, including a reported broken leg. The event is actually thought to be some 600 years old and how about the girl from our team? Shout out to North Carolina’s own Abby Lampe- who apparently caught the cheese-winning the women’s division. That sounds dirtier than it really is, right? <g>
