Lance Mackey Wins 2010 Iditarod

via reuters

Lance Mackey, the world's fastest dog-sledding pot smoker throat cancer survivor, won his 4th consecutive Iditarod with a total time of 8 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 9 seconds; just a shade under 9 whole days. Just a dude and his dogs for nine whole days. Gosh, when I say it like that, Snow Dogs doesn't sound like such a bad idea.

The next closest guy, Hans Gatt, finished roughly an hour after Mackey, and the third place finisher, Jeff King, finished more than an hour after that. After Mackey finished, I would've gone inside to get warm.
