On April 13, 2002, reporter Sean Cole filed a story that has endured as a favorite here at Only A Game. Cole's treatise on the New England Belt Sander Association (NEBSRA) began like this:

“Two by two, they come screaming down the 85-foot-long, waist-high wooden track, trailing rooster tails of sawdust and long, yellow extension cords that power them to the finish line.”

In honor of what's been billed as the final NEBSRA race, we present the full audio from that story. (The audio player is above the photo.)
