In case you missed it on SportsCenter, today continues the 23rd annual World Pooh-Sticks Championship Race in Oxfordshire, England. The Japanese have returned to defend their title against... a lot of people with nothing better to do.Pooh Stick racing might sound kind of dirty, but it's not. Pooh Stick racing actually consists of finding a stick, dropping it in to a river, and then seeing how long it takes to get to the finish line. That's it. That's all they do. It's inspired and named after Winnie the Pooh, as he and Christopher Robin used to play the same game. Pooh would routinely win and then get in Christopher Robin's grill and sing "Whoop That Trick."
