Friday Iditarod Update #4: Buser Re-Takes the Lead

At this point, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race has become Martin Buser's race to lose.

At 12:52 p.m., the four-time Iditarod champion sailed past Grayling and the group of mushers who had leapfrogged his team in Anvik earlier this morning while he was napping and eating gourmet food. Buser is now heading for the Eagle Island checkpoint with few mushers chasing his tail.

Shouldn't that be the dogs' tails? Ah well ... there's more at the link.

Well he IS the tail of the sled... or should I say the last ass in the sled... oh never mind... :-)

True enough, sir. True enough!

Next year I'm gonna find a poodle and run up there and kick butt. Just you watch.

You're right, Stephen. The wolves will think it's the best snack they ever had!
