Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Running glassesWhen did orienteering with glasses become popular?
Looking at the cover of the latest O-Sport, 3 of the 10 "icons of 2003" are running in glasses.
Running with glasses makes sense. You can pick the tint to match the conditions -- dark glasses for sunny days, red/yellow tint for flat light and clear for other situations. The lenses ought to protect your eyes from scratches. Of course, running with glasses in the rain isn't fun. Actually, running with glasses in the rain is ok, but reading the map is a problem.
I run with sunglasses now and then. But I've never tried them consistently. Maybe I'll give it a try this spring.
Almost seemed like a different team
I sat down in front of the TV to watch the Jayhawk basketball team play UCSB tonight. When I watch the games on TV I almost always turn the sound down and listen to the radio coverage. I like the radio broadcasters a lot more than the TV commentators.
Tonight Bob and Max weren't on. Instead, Brett Ballard and some other guy (I didn't catch the name) did the coverage. Bob and Max are apparently with the KU football team getting ready for Monday's game.
I hadn't realized how much I'd gotten used to Bob and Max. Listening to other voices almost made it seem like a different team. It didn't help that the Jayhawks played in red uniforms (something we haven't seen since the mid-1980s). posted by Michael | 9:08 PM
