Even without betting on them, the races and games held during stoppages in play of sporting events are often the most thrilling action of the day; it's possible I miss the mites games between periods more than anything else during the NHL lockout. This relay race, from half time of yesterday's Southampton-Newcastle match, had everything: big leads erased, cheating, and plenty of pratfalls. I promise that if you pick a team to support and watch through to the end, you won't be disappointed by the drama.
