The Boat Race 2008

However wonderful things are in sunny California, I thoroughly regret missing out on the Boat Race tomorrow.

Gamblers and others with money to spare should place their bets on the Dark Blues, let there be no doubt about that.

Today’s Guardian features a nice series of pictures, and the BBC’s Martin Gough talks about why he loves the Race, despite the usual allegations over elitism, etc. It is funny how the English like to see everything as a class struggle.

[Update: yay!]
