Flames! Gears! Excitement!

I was just notified [Thanks T!] that ESPN wants to sponsor a Collegiate BattleBots Championship and I am semi-seriously wondering if there is any interest among my students because WOW would that be fun. It doesn’t look like there have been any competitions since 2005, so they are still investigating whether there is enough interest to actually do this.
It actually makes me wondering if there is some sort of tie in with Doonesbury – this week they are rerunning their awesome series from last January where Alex is off at MIT competing in a robot competition. Go check it out – start back at the beginning of the week.
Since I have no better context for this link: another crazy and possibly dangerous thing I could make is Beer Cheese Cupcakes with Bacon Cheddar Cream Cheese Frosting. I am disturbingly tempted….
