Weight for Height

While watching the Weight for Height competition at Saturday's Highland Festival in McHenry, Md., I was most impressed by the contestants' nonchalance after throwing. If I were able to heave a 56-pound weight straight into the air, I would not just stand there waiting for it to come down again. I would run out of the way, probably with my hands over my head, and likely squealing -- all probably frowned on at highland games.

That's Deep Creek Lake in the background.

That's cool that you attended the Highland games. Katy and I recently trekked to Gatlinburg for those games. Have you ever seen so many bagpipes?!
