Not too sure if this is TOTALLY off topic, but I get a strangely satisfying feeling in knowing that Michigan dominates in Rock, Paper, Scissors...

...unlikely finish to an amazing 2009 Yahoo! Rock Paper Scissors World Championships as Tim Conrad took the championship in an head-to-head showdown with his teammate and lifelong best friend Tom Butkin. Decked out in a patriotic muscle suit, Conrad waded through the sold out crowd of 512 competitors in Toronto to end up having to face his teammate and fellow Michigander in one last duel. It was a dominant performance by Conrad who combined a scissors-exclusionary strategy with a lethal Avalanche - Bureaucrat combination to win a decisive victory in straight sets. However the clear victors were "The Elite 47" who claim the first all-American final, the first all-team final, and the highest overall team finish ever.
