No relay races? Doesn't seem like this "team" competition has much to do with being a team in the first place. Just a bunch of individual events.

Well, as a non sports fan, however, I appreciate any person who works hard to compete.

Ok, rednecks, tune this out (pun intended) but the Cliburn competition is coming in Fort Worth. Lots of young pianists who have trained since probably age four to get there and will be unable to compete after age thirty.

This is every bit as much hard work at a piano (yes, intellectual AND physical) as any athletic competition imaginable.

Watch the Star Telegram for details, those of you interested in such things - and for the lazy ones (I'm one of em'), you can watch the pianists live webcast at www.cliburn.org.

One contestant is TOTALLY BLIND.....from birth.

Amazing and mind boggling.

Hey, that's my hometown of Hamlin, TX just north of Abilene. Home of the Hamlin Pied Pipers -- now there's a mascot for you!
