Finally someone has actually made the annual Oxford vs. Cambridge boat race interesting. The most over-hyped sporting event of the year was brought to a halt today, when some ghastly fellow swam into the path of the rowers during the race. Conor McNamara has noticed that the swimmer looks remarkably like Stoke City's Danny Higginbotham.
Cambridge won on the second attempt, after being behind when the race was originally stopped. This is the biggest controversy to hit the sport of university rowing since the invention of the motor boat.
